Eight Premier League managers who could get sacked


With Watford being the first Premier League team to sack their manager this season and with pressure reportedly increasing on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, here are eight EPL tacticians who might suffer the same fate.

The Hornets officially, and perhaps surprisingly, sacked Xisco Munoz following the club's 1-0 defeat to Leeds United on Saturday, with the decision having been made just seven games into the 2021/22 campaign.

The Spanish coach may feel hard done by after steering Watford to promotion from the EFL Championship in the 2020/21 season, but according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, a replacement has already been identified, with Claudio Ranieri seemingly set to take over at Vicarage Road.

Manchester United are another club whose manager could be on the chopping block, with the Red Devils having begun the season with an inconsistent set of results – they have just two wins in their past six matches.

Solskjaer also does not appear to be any closer to winning his first trophy with the club despite spending a £441 million (R8.9 billion) on players since stepping into United's helm, according to the Daily Mirror.

Tottenham Hotspur's new boss Nuno Espirito Santo started his tenure with the club on a good note after being named the EPL's Manager of the Month for August. In dramatic fashion, however, things changed in September when the Lilywhites went on a three-game losing run to the London trio of Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Arsenal.

Despite the Portuguese coach being in the early stages of his new role, a Football Insider report recently suggested that Santo will be sacked if Mauricio Pochettino were to receive his marching orders at Paris Saint-Germain.

Other Premier League managers who are said to be in the firing line include Newcastle United's Steve Bruce, whose team is currently in the relegation zone – scroll through the gallery above to see some other EPL bosses who could be sacked this season, per bookmakers.co.uk.
