With the end of the 2020/21 Premier League campaign fast approaching, the bookies are going odds-on that no top-flight manager will vacate his position between now and the end of the season. The battle against relegation continues unabated and it is starting to look likely that Fulham will be joining West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United in the Championship next season. Newcastle United have opened-up a six-point gap between themselves and the relegation zone thanks to some improved results and they enjoy a game-in-hand over Fulham in 18th position, therefore it’s fair to say that the pressure has been lifted from under-fire Magpies boss Steve Bruce.

Nevertheless Bruce is firm favourite to be the next managerial casualty in the Premier League with most firms going 9/2 that he is given the boot in the coming weeks. The Magpies boss has been under huge pressure throughout the campaign with his team struggling to haul themselves far away from the drop zone and the fans continuing to show their unrest. Nevertheless having been odds-on for the chop only a couple of weeks ago, Bruce looks as though he might see it through to 2021/22 at St James’ Park.

His closest rival in the Premier League Sack Race market is Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese boss is also a man under ever increasing pressure with his side very much out of contention for a top-four finish in the Premier League. Indeed it is looking conceivable that the North London club may miss out on European football altogether next season and in this event, it is far from fanciful to believe that Mourinho’s tenure at White Hart Lane may soon be coming to an end.

Update: 26.03.21

Steve Bruce is a man under increasing pressure as we rapidly head towards the end of the season. The Magpies sit two points clear of the relegation zone as things stand and given recent performances, it would be no huge surprise were they to drop into the bottom three between now and the end of the campaign.

The Magpies have a game-in-hand over 18th-placed Fulham although on recent form it’s hard to envisage Steve Bruce’s men doing anything positive with this. As such it is no massive surprise to see the Newcastle United boss priced-up as firm favourite to be the next managerial casualty in the top-flight.

Most firms have slashed the odds on Steve Bruce in the ‘Premier League Sack Race’ market with BetVictor going Evens that he finds himself out of a job in the coming weeks or even days. The Magpies have now gone six games without a win in the Premier League and their 3-0 thrashing at Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday has justly been described as one of their worst performances of the campaign thus far.

Jose Mourinho is also considered a realistic candidate to be the next Premier League manager to be dismissed. Tottenham Hotspur are falling behind in the battle to secure a Champions League berth for next season with three points separating them from the top-four and should they find themselves out of the top-six in the coming weeks, then the likelihood is that the Portuguese boss may be looking for employment elsewhere, the bookies going a general 8/1 on the Spurs gaffer in this market.

West Brom boss Sam Allardyce and Southampton gaffer Ralph Hasenhuttl come in next on the ‘Sack Race’ market at 10/1 apiece while Fulham’s Scott Parker is a 12/1 shot for the chop.

Newcastle United have managed to avoid defeat in each of their last three outings but the stark reality is that the Magpies are in real danger of being dragged into the bottom three in the Premier League table. Steve Bruce’s men have managed just one win in seven and they sit just two points above the relegation zone, 18th-placed Fulham having enjoyed a notable improvement in form over recent weeks. As such the pressure on the under-fire Newcastle manager has only intensified and he is a general 2/1 for the sack with most bookies.

Indeed Bruce is well ahead of his closest rivals on the ‘Premier League Sack Race’ market and should the Magpies find themselves in the bottom three any time soon, then the club board will likely lose patience.

West Bromwich Albion manager Sam Allardyce is also a man under pressure. The Baggies boss only took charge at the Hawthorns three months ago, however he has thus far failed dismally to turn around the fortunes of a side which are looking increasingly destined for relegation straight back down to the Championship. Most firms go 6/1 that Big Sam finds himself out of a job in the coming days or weeks.

Tottenham Hotspur are struggling in their bid for a Champions League berth and boss Jose Mourinho is also a man under increasing pressure. The Portuguese boss is an 8/1 punt for the chop ahead of Jurgen Klopp who is 10/1 to leave Anfield.

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl completes the top five in the market at general odds of 10/1 while Crystal Palace gaffer Roy Hodgson is a 12/1 punt to be shown the door.

This has been a disastrous season for Liverpool, the Reds having suffered their sixth consecutive home defeat when losing 1-0 to Premier League strugglers Fulham at Anfield on Sunday afternoon. This result sent Liverpool down the league table and they now sit in eighth position with seven points separating them from the Champions League berths. This is a massive gap for a side struggling to pick up points on home soil and it has done nothing to lift the pressure on under-fire boss Jurgen Klopp.

The German is now second-favourite on the Premier League Sack Race betting market with most bookies going 4/1 that he becomes the next managerial casualty in the top flight. Indeed while Liverpool are still involved in European competition the chances of him being sacked would seem remote, however going on domestic performances we don’t envisage their participation in the Champions League lasting much longer.

Heading the market is Steve Bruce, the Newcastle United boss also coming under increased pressure with his side just a single point above the bottom three. The Magpies’ situation became more serious thanks to Fulham’s win at Anfield last weekend and Bruce finds himself priced at a general 7/4 in the Sack Race market.

Completing the top-three in the market is Roy Hodgson, the Crystal Palace boss overseeing an Eagles side which are relatively safe from the threat of relegation right now but which have put in some throughly lacklustre performances in recent weeks. The Palace boss is a general 6/1 punt to be shown the door ahead of any other top-flight manager.

Clearly devoid of ideas and with his side sliding down the Premier League on the back of some abysmal home form, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is a man under increasing pressure. A 1-0 defeat to Chelsea last night was a fifth consecutive defeat at Anfield and having taken top goalscorer Mo Salah off at the very time when his side needed to find the back of the net, many pundits believe that the Reds gaffer has lost it. Many punters clearly feel the same and they have been backing him in their droves to be the next managerial casualty in the Premier League, the bookies reacting by slashing his odds on the ‘Sack Race’ market from a general 10/1 to just 5/1.

Liverpool now sit seventh in the Premier League table and with Klopp’s men having played a game more than the two sides immediately above them in the league table, the chances of them claiming a Champions League berth at the end of the campaign are looking increasingly remote. Indeed even a Europa League place is looking beyond them right now and it remains to be seen whether or not Klopp can manage to stop the rot.

Steve Bruce remains at the top of the market at odds of just 5/4, however the focus is very much on Klopp right now and should his side fail to take maximum points at home to Fulham on Sunday afternoon, then the board will need to carefully consider their options ahead of the business end of the campaign. In fairness, the Reds don’t have the toughest run-in towards the end of the season although given the manner in which they are conceding defeat on home soil, any side will have confidence in bringing home points from Anfield this season and we will have the confidence to back them to do so.

 

Update: 04.03.21

 

Steve Bruce has been backed into favourite on the ‘Premier League Sack Race’ betting, the Newcastle United manager coming under increasing pressure on the back of some hugely disappointing and unimpressive performances. The Magpies sit just three points clear of the bottom three in the league table as things stand and the recent resurgence of 18th-placed Fulham could soon cause the Tyneside outfit to drop down into the relegation.

Bruce is now a little over Evens to be the next managerial casualty in the top-flight, most firms going around 6/5 that he finds himself out of a job in the coming days or weeks. Indeed with Newcastle picking up just a single point in their last three outings, the pressure is increasing on the under-fire boss and the fans have been calling for him to be sacked for many months now.

Jose Mourinho is still deemed to be in danger of the sack although the pressure has been lifted somewhat following some excellent recent results. Tottenham Hotspur remain six points adrift of the top four in the Premier League but they do have at least one game-in-hand over all-but-one of the seven sides above them in the top-flight. Not only that but they have won their last two games to the tune of 4-0 and the bookies have lengthened the odds slightly on Mourinho being next in line for the chop to 4/1.

Elsewhere, Roy Hodgson remains prominent on the market at odds of 8/1 alongside Southampton’s Ralph Hassenhuttl at the same odds, while Jurgen Klopp and Sam Allardyce are each a 10/1 punt to be the next managerial casualty in the Premier League.

Tottenham Hotspur have been in fine fettle in their last couple of outings, Jose Mourinho’s men thrashing RZ Pellets WAC to the tune of 4-0 in their midweek Europa League outing and following this up with a thumping of Burnley by the same scoreline just a few days later in the Premier League. This has certainly eased the pressure on under-fire boss Mourinho and his odds on being the next managerial casualty in the top-flight have drifted to a general 3/1 with most bookmakers.

As far as the Premier League title is concerned, Tottenham Hotspur are very much out of the running – as is every other side bar Man City – although they remain very much in contention as far as a top-six finish is concerned. Their recent upturn in fortunes couldn’t have arrived at a better time as far as Mourinho’s future is concerned although victory over weak European opposition and a struggling Burnley is hardly a lot to get too excited about. Some tough challenges lie ahead for Spurs in the coming weeks and that is where their true tests will be.

With Regard to the ‘Premier League Sack Race’ market is concerned, the bookmakers feel that the most likely outcome will be ‘No Manager To Leave’ before the season draws to a close. Some firms go 7/4 that there will be no managerial departures in the top-flight between now and the final day of the campaign.

Steve Bruce is still being seen as a man at risk of the sack, the Newcastle United boss a 4/1 punt fore the chop. The Magpies sit dangerously close to the drop zone with just three points separating them from 18th placed Fulham as things stand. Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson is a 6/1 shot to be axed, alongside Jurgen Klopp and Sam Allardyce at the same odds.

Tottenham Hotspur made light work of RZ Pellets WAC in the Europa League last night, the 4-0 win giving Jose Mourinho’s men an aggregate scoreline of 8-1 and sending them through to the last sixteen of the competition in excellent fashion. This win has lifted the pressure on under-fire Mourinho and while the Spurs boss remains favourite to be the next managerial casualty in the Premier League, the likelihood of him being sacked is somewhat slight given that they have entered the final stages of the Europa League.

Tottenham Hotspur have been struggling in the Premier League in recent weeks but in fairness they have had some pretty tough assignments. The North Londoners have lost their last two league games but these were against two teams which have been the best in the division since the turn of the year.

Mourinho remains 9/4 favourite in the ‘Premier League Sack Race’ market, leaving him ahead of Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce who sits second in the market at odds of 4/1. The Magpies now sit just three points and a single position clear of the relegation zone and the pressure is certainly increasing on a manager who has never really endeared himself to the fans.

Roy Hodgson is still deemed to be in danger of the chop, the Crystal Palace boss a 6/1 shot to be the next managerial casualty in the top-flight despite his side beating Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League earlier this week.

West Bromwich Albion boss Sam Allardyce is also 6/1 for the chop, ahead of Jurgen Klopp and Ralph Hassenhuttl at 8/1 and 12/1 respectively.

Update: 23.02.21

Following his side’s 2-1 defeat to local rivals West Ham United at the weekend, Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho now finds himself firm favourite in the ‘Premier League Sack Race’ betting market with some bookies going just 9/4 that he becomes the next managerial casualty in the top-flight.

The Spurs gaffer is now ahead of under-fire Steve Bruce in the market, the Newcastle United boss now a 9/2 punt for the chop. Tottenham Hotspur’s next Premier League outing involves a home meeting with a Burnley side which have suffered just a single defeat in their last five and this will certainly be a challenge for the North Londoners.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has slipped down the Sack Race betting market following his side’s  2-1 win away to Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday evening, a result which lifted the Eagles a full ten points clear of the relegation zone and lengthened Hodgson’s odds on the Sack Race market to 13/2 . Jurgen Klopp is also a 13/2 punt to be next in the firing line, the Liverpool boss overseeing some hugely disappointing results which culminated in a home defeat to local rivals Everton at the weekend.

West Bromwich Albion have managed back-to-back draws with Manchester United and a much improved Burnley in their last two outings and this has certainly boosted the chances of Sam Allardyce remaining in the hot-seat at the Hawthorns, the Baggies boss now out at 14/1 on the Sack Race market, ahead of Sheffield United gaffer Chris Wilder who is 20/1 to be given the push in the coming weeks.

Update: 18.02.21

Following an alarming downturn on the domestic scene, Liverpool look to be out of the running as far as the Premier League title is concerned and boss Jurgen Klopp is feeling the heat. Only three days ago, the German was Evens to be the next managerial casualty in the top-flight and while his case was helped thanks to a 2-0 win over RB Leipzig in the Champions League earlier this week, the Reds’ boss is still as low as 4/1 on the ‘Sack Race’ market.

Liverpool’s dramatic downturn in the Premier League has resulted in their title odds drifting to as much as 100/1 and the pressure has been building up on the Premier League winning gaffer. Klopp’s achievements at Anfield should help him avoid the sack but the bookies are of the opinion that he may be living on borrowed time.

Jose Mourinho remains favourite to be shown the door before any other top-flight manager at odds of 2/1, Tottenham Hotspur also very much out of the running as far as the title is concerned.  Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson is seen as another of the leading contenders for the sack with most firms going a general 4/1. Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce and West Bromwich Albion boss Sam Allardyce are each a 6/1 punt for the chop while Chris Wilder is way out at 25/1 despite his Sheffield United side still sitting at the foot of the Premier League table.

The bookmakers continue to slash the odds on under-fire Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho in the ‘Premier League Sack Race’ betting market. Spurs were dumped out of the FA Cup at the fifth round stage following a gruelling 5-4 defeat to Everton after extra-time and the bookies reacted to that defeat by making Mourinho favourite to be the next managerial casualty in the top-flight.

The Portuguese manager is now a general 2/1 shot to be shown the door in the coming days or weeks and it’s hard to see the pressure being eased from Mourinho when his side travel to Premier League leaders Manchester City this weekend. Defeat at the Etihad Stadium could prove to be the final straw for a board not exactly known for their patience and failure to take anything from this trip could result in the Spurs gaffer being dismissed.

West Bromwich Albion boss Sam Allardyce is next at 3/1 despite having been at the Hawthorns for just a few weeks while Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce remains prominent in the betting market at odds of just 4/1. The Magpies have shown signs of improvement in recent weeks with wins in two of their last three Premier League outings, however Bruce has never endeared himself to the fans and many would dearly love to see the back of him.

The pressure continues to pile on Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho following his side’s defeat at home to arch-rivals Chelsea and he is now as low as 4/1 to be the next managerial casualty in the Premier League. The North Londoners put in a tepid and toothless display against Chelsea at White Hart Lane and while Mourinho was 7/1 in the Sack Race market earlier in the day, his odds were slashed to just 3/1 after the final whistle. Most bookies now go a best price of 5/1 that the Portuguese boss finds himself out of a job before any other top-flight manager and while Spurs brushed aside West Bromwich Albion to the tune of 2-0 in their latest outing, it’s clear that Mourinho aren’t out of the woods just yet.

Following the defeat to Spurs, West Bromwich Albion manager Sam Allardyce currently sits in pole position in the betting market at odds of  just 3/1. Big Sam took the reins from Slaven Bilic earlier in the season but thus far he has been unable to turn around the fortunes of the West Midlands side and they sit just a single point off the foot of the Premier League table.

Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce is also a man under immense pressure following his side’s poor recent performances. The Magpies remain ten points clear of the bottom three in the league table but the bookies have slashed the odds on him losing his job some time soon and he now sits second in the Sack Race betting market at general odds of 9/2 although some firms go as low as 5/2 that he is the next managerial casualty.

Following their surprise win over high-flying Manchester United at Old Trafford earlier this week, the pressure on Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has been eased somewhat and he no longer finds himself in the top three in the ‘Premier League Sack Race’ market. The Blades remain firmly at the foot of the Premier League table, however they have narrowed the gap between themselves and second-bottom side West Bromwich Albion to just three points. They remain massive odds-on favourites to be relegated to the Championship at the end of the season but given that this is now edging ever closer to a certainty, the board seem to be of the opinion that Wilder is the man best suited to lifting them straight back up at the first time of asking.

As such, the bookmakers have further lengthened the odds on Wilder becoming the next managerial casualty in the top-flight. Previously favourite in this market, the Blades gaffer is now out at a general 8/1 for the chop with several bookies going as high as 10/1 that he finds himself out of a job at some point in the very near future.

Steve Bruce remains at the head of the betting market, the Newcastle United boss coming under increasing pressure as his side slip ever closer to the danger zone. The Magpies have been putting in some uninspired performances over the past few weeks and most bookies go odds-on at 4/6 that Bruce is next on the hit-list. Bruce was very much in the firing line before the defeat to Leeds United earlier this week and his position is becoming ever more untenable.

It was yet another defeat for Newcastle United last night when they lost 2-1 at home to Leeds United and on the back of this disappointing result, Magpies boss Steve Bruce has been left staring down the barrel. Priced at around Evens yesterday, the Newcastle United manager is now a best price of just 4/6 to be the next managerial casualty in the top-flight.

This was the fifth defeat on the bounce for the Magpies and it piles the pressure even further onto the under-fire manager. Indeed Bruce was on thin ice before last night’s defeat to Leeds United and the likelihood now is that he will lose his job on the back of it.

This was Newcastle’s ninth league match without a win and fifth successive defeat in the Premier League, a hugely disappointing run which also included exits from both domestic cup competitions. The fans have been completely uninspired by Bruce this season and with the side a mere seven points above the drop zone and 6/4 to be relegated to the Championship, a change of manager is looking increasingly likely at St James’ Park.

Frank Lampard was shown the door by Chelsea yesterday morning and Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce now finds himself firm favourite on the ‘Premier League Sack Race’ betting market. The Magpies have endured a thoroughly miserable season thus far and given that they have now gone ten games without a win across competitions – losing eight times during this run – it’s not a surprise to see Bruce odds-on with some firms to become the next managerial casualty in the top-flight.

Newcastle United have lost each of their last four outings to nil with eight goals conceded during that time and they are edging ever closer to the relegation zone. Dreadful league form combined with a thoroughly disappointing run in both the League Cup and FA Cup has left many fans disillusioned and frustrated, many calling for a change of manager. Bruce will now find himself increasingly under pressure and the board will surely be considering making some changes to their coaching set-up.

Elsewhere, Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder is a 5/1 punt for the chop, the Blades struggling at the foot of the Premier League table. Brighton & Hove Albion manager Graham Potter is next in the market at odds of 8/1 while Crystal Palace gaffer Roy Hodgson and Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo come in next at 12/1 apiece.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is now huge odds-on favourite to be the next managerial casualty in the Premier League following his side’s disappointing defeat to Leicester City on Tuesday evening. The Blues lost 2-0 to the Foxes at the King Power Stadium in what was a one-sided exchange and the bookies responded to the defeat by slashing Lampard’s odds on the ‘Sack Race’ market.

Before Christmas, the Blues manager was around 25/1 to be the next manager to leave his post in the top-flight, however following a poor run of form in recent weeks this price has been slashed considerably and he now stands as 1/2 favourite to be shown the door.

This means that the Chelsea gaffer have moved ahead of previous favourite Steve Bruce in the betting market, the Newcastle United boss now out at 3/1. Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has seen his odds drift considerably despite his side sitting firmly at the foot of the Premier League table and staring relegation squarely in the face. The Blades manager is now out at 6/1 to be the next managerial casualty in the Premier League, ahead of Brighton’s Graham Potter who has also drifted in the market and who is now a 14/1 punt for the chop.

Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce’s problems continue to mount, the Magpies being on the receiving end of a 3-0 thumping at the hands of Arsenal last night. Aubameyang opened the scoring for the Gunners five minutes into the second half and the rout was completed with a goal from Saka and a second from Aubameyang. This was the Magpies’ seventh defeat from nine competitive outings and their fourth on the bounce, therefore it is no surprise to see Bruce heading the Sack Race market, most bookies slashing the odds on him being the next managerial casualty in the top-flight to 11/8.

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has now slipped down to second in the market despite his men still sitting securely at the foot of the Premier League table. The Blades have won two of their last three outings across competitions but they have collected just five points from their nineteen league matches and Wilder is 3/1 to be shown the door before any other top-flight boss.

Frank Lampard remains a man under pressure, the Chelsea boss desperate to turn things around following some unconvincing recent form. A 1-0 win over near-neighbours Fulham last weekend was a step in the right direction but this win came on the back of 3-1 league defeats to Arsenal and Manchester City, either side of a dismal 1-1 draw at home to Aston Villa. Lampard is now a 4/1 shot to be the next Premier League managerial casualty.

The pressure has been building on under-fire Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce since the hugely disappointing midweek defeat to rock-bottom side Sheffield United, this dismal performance extending Newcastle’s winless run to eight games. Ryan Fraser was sent off for a second yellow card late in the first half and Billy Sharp scored from the spot in the second half to give Sheffield United their first and thus far only Premier League win of the campaign.

Numerous questions have been raised with regard to Steve Bruce’s future on Tyneside by pundits and disgruntled supporters, the Magpies now just seven points above the relegation zone. Nevertheless the manager maintains that he won’t be resigning, insisting that he won’s ‘walk away from the challenge’.

The Magpies barely laid a glove on Sheffield United in what was an abysmal display on Wednesday evening and the bookies reacted immediately by slashing the odds on Steve Bruce in the ‘Premier League Sack Race market, the Newcastle boss now a 3/1 punt to be shown the door in the coming weeks or even days, ahead of Sheffield United’s Chris Wilder who remains top of the betting market at a general 7/4.

While Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder remains out-and-out favourite to be the next managerial casualty in the Premier League, Steve Bruce has seen his odds slashed decisively following his side’s defeat to the Blades earlier this week. The Newcastle United manager is a man under increasing pressure as his side slip slowly down the Premier League table on the back of some dismal form. The Magpies have collected just two points from their last six league matches and on the back of this, the bookies have slashed the odds on Bruce being next manager to leave in the Premier League from a general 5/1 to just 3/1.

Newcastle United’s next Premier League outing is away to an Arsenal outfit that have enjoyed an upturn in form in recent weeks and going on recent performances, we don’t envisage Bruce’s men managing anything from their trip to the capital.

Despite grabbing their first win of the campaign, Sheffield United remain firmly at the foot of the Premier League table and boss Chris Wilder is 7/4 on the ‘Sack Race’ market, while Chelsea gaffer Frank Lampard also looks to be living on borrowed time following his side’s slump in form, the Blues boss now just 4/1 to be the top-flight’s next managerial casualty.

 

Update: 13.01.21

Sheffield United grabbed their first league win of the season when beating Newcastle United to the tune of 1-0 last night, however while this will have boosted confidence somewhat in the Blades squad, the side remain firmly rooted to the foot of the Premier League table as we head towards the second half of the campaign.

The South Yorkshire outfit now have five points to their name and while this is more than double their total of 24 hours ago, it still leaves them nine points adrift of safety. As such, the pressure is still very much on under-fire manager Chris Wilder as he looks to haul his side away from the foot of the league table. In fairness, he isn’t going to manage this anytime soon – if at all, and besides he may not be given the chance to do so.

Wilder is still favourite to be the next managerial casualty in the Premier League although his odds have drifted in the market slightly with some firms going 45/17 that he shown the door before any other top-flight boss. Lampard is still second in the betting market at 4/1 while Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce has shortened to just 5/1 following his side’s defeat to the Blades at Bramall Lane last night.

Update: 12.01.21

Sheffield United may have eased themselves into the fourth round of the FA Cup thanks to an unconvincing 3-2 win over Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium last weekend, however that has done little to help Chris Wilder’s cause. The Blades are firmly rooted to the foot of the Premier League table with just two points to their name and Wilder is huge odds-on favourite to be the next managerial casualty in the top-flight, most firms going 8/15 that he is shown the door.

BetVictor Bookmakers have actually lengthened the odds on Wilder in the ‘Premier League Sack Race’ market with this firm going odds-against at 5/4, however the Blades boss appears to be living on borrowed time and it would be a big surprise were he to last much longer.

Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Morecambe also did little to help the cause of under-fire Blues boss Frank Lampard. The Chelsea manager was a general 5/1 for the chop just a few days ago, however he is now down to 4/1 to be the next Premier League managerial casualty. The West London outfit have suffered a downturn in form over the past few weeks with their last Premier League outing ending in a 3-1 defeat at home to Manchester City, therefore it would be no huge surprise were Lampard to be shown the door anytime soon.

Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce is next in the betting at odds of 6/1 following his side’s 2-0 defeat at Arsenal in the FA Cup third round last weekend.

As we fast approach the half-way point of the 2020/21 Premier League campaign, it has become clear that Sheffield United are going to be relegated at the end of the season. The Blades have amassed just two points from their seventeen league matches thus far and they sit twelve points adrift of safety, therefore even a turnaround in fortunes will almost certainly be too little too late. As such it is no huge surprise to see under-fire manager Chris Wilder head the ‘Premier League Sack Race’ betting market with most bookmakers going 4/7 that he is the next managerial casualty in the top-flight.

In fairness it would be no bad thing were the Blades to find themselves back in the second tier. Undoubtedly their last season in the Championship was far more enjoyable than this one and many see Wilder as their only real hope of making an immediate return back to the Premier League in the event that they succumb to the inevitable relegation this time around.

Elsewhere, Frank Lampard is next in the ‘Sack Race’ market, the Chelsea boss coming under increased pressure following his side’s slump in recent weeks. Following the 3-1 defeat at home to Manchester City in their last outing, Lampard’s odds were slashed and he is now a 5/1 punt to be the next managerial casualty in the top-flight.

Brighton & Hove Albion boss Graham Potter is next in the betting at odds of 10/1 while Roy Hodgson and Steve Bruce make up the top five at 12/1 apiece.
