Next Premier League Manager to leave post: Silva ‘leading race’ to follow Unai Emery sacking

It’s been another difficult season for several Premier League managers, with many finding themselves under huge pressure after just 13 games in.

Mauricio Pochettino, Javi Gracia and most recently Unai Emery have all lost their jobs, with many more looking likely to follow suit very soon.

The Arsenal manager suffered the unwanted fate after Thursday’s loss at home to Frankfurt in the Europa League, having guided his side to just four league wins this season.

Another manager to win just four Premier League matches is Marco Silva. Things were looking up for Everton at the beginning of the season, with a top six spot undoubtedly up for grabs and seemingly all theirs before a ball was kicked. Despite new signings and a positive outlook on the new campaign, it simply hasn’t gone Everton’s way.

Silva now finds himself under increasing pressure after yet another loss last weekend. Norwich were the latest side to overcome the Toffees, condemning them to a seventh league defeat of the season. He’s currently 3/2 to be the next manager to go from the top-flight.

West Ham’s Manuel Pellegrini is also feeling the heat after losing 3-2 at home to Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur last weekend. After a bright start to the campaign, the Hammers are a point behind Everton with just three wins. They’ve picked up just two points from their last 21 available in the league.

The former Manchester City boss is 5/2 to be the next manager to leave this season.

Having only just sacked Gracia in September, Watford are also reportedly considering another managerial change. They remain rock bottom of the league with just one win to their name all season. Current boss Quique Sanchez Flores is 5/1 to follow in the footsteps of his predecessor.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is also 5/1 to be the next manager to go. The Portuguese has led his side to Europa League qualification, while they currently sit fifth in the league table. But he’s been strongly linked to take over from Emery and could therefore be the next manager gone.

And he’s followed by Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The club’s former striker has endured a disappointing start to the 2019/20 campaign. His side have now failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last 12 top-flight away games. It’s their worst run since the 1985/86 season.

Solskjaer is 9/1 to be the next Premier League manager to be shown the exit door after losing to Astana on Thursday.

And Southampton’s Ralph Hasenhuttl will also be fearing the worst after a poor start to the campaign. He’s 10/1 to go next.
