Slavisa Jokanovic has just become the first Premier League managerial casualty of the season following his departure from Fulham. Other managers will now be looking over their shoulders as bookmakers slash the odds on who’s next for the chop.

Who Will Be The Next Premier League Manager To Be Sacked?

Mark Hughes

The Welshman is under continued pressure after a poor start to the season. Appointed last March, the former Stoke boss successfully steered the club to safety with the future looking bright. However, despite a number of summer signings, this season has so far been a disaster. Southampton are currently lying in 17th after 12 games, having only won once this season.

Jose Mourinho

Jose courts controversy like nobody else. His style has been evident since he first arrived on these shores as Chelsea boss in 2004. Self-proclaiming himself as ‘The Special One’, Mourinho has been a journalist’s dream.

The former Real Madrid manager arrived at Manchester United during the summer of 2016. His first season brought success in the shape of victorious campaigns in the League Cup and Europa League. However, his defensive style has led to criticism from both the media and United fans.

A recent Champions League victory against Juventus looked to have instilled some confidence in his methods, but last weekend’s lacklustre defeat at bitter rivals City has left United fans ‘chomping at the bit’ as ‘#mourinhoout‘ continues to trend on social media.

Manchester United seem content to let Mourinho continue for now, but failure to compete for the title could soon see him in the firing line with The Red Devils hierarchy.

Neil Warnock

Warnock has been around the game for many years and has certainly seen it all. Cardiff sit 18th in the Premier League and have endured a difficult start to the start. An honest Cardiff fan will tell you the aim for the season is to stay up and hope for a cup run.

However, Vincent Tan is not a man to hold back if he’s not happy with how the team are performing. During the Malaysian’s eight years at the helm, he has sacked no fewer than five managers.

Roy Hodgson

The former England boss been very unlucky this season with injuries. Key missing players such as Christian Benteke, Connor Wickham and Scott Dann has left Crystal Palace struggling. With only two victories this season, Hodgson will be feeling the pressure. They are without a league victory since a 1-0 win on the 15th of September away at Huddersfield Town.

David Wagner

Huddersfield only recorded their first win of the season a couple of weeks ago with a 1-0 win against fellow strugglers Fulham. Wagner worked wonders to get The Terriers promoted to top-level football for the first time since 1972. The German impressed further by securing their top-flight status.

Wagner is well liked in West-Yorkshire, but if results do not improve, chairman Dean Hoyle will no choice but to consider a managerial change.
