Who will be the next Premier League manager to be sacked? That is the question on a lot of football fans’ mind right now.
13 match weeks into the Premier League season and we already have 2 managers sacked. Watford sacked Javi Gracia and reappointed Quique Sánchez Flores in September itself after they picked up 1 point from the first 4 games.
Mauricio Pochettino was sacked by Tottenham during the November International break and Jose Mourinho was brought in. The two sackings were predictable and now, fans of 3 more clubs are keen on getting their manager replaced.
Without further ado, here are 3 Premier League managers who could be sacked soon:
#3 – Unai Emery
The future of Unai Emery has been hanging in the balance for some time now. The Gooners are not happy with his tactics and the players too have started to show their frustration.
Our sources indicated that he was set to be sacked after the Leicester City loss but Mourinho, who was touted as the replacement, did not reach an agreement with the Gunners. The manager could not deliver against Southampton on Saturday and now reports suggest that Arsenal are not willing to keep him at the helm for long.
#2 – Manuel Pellegrini
‘At the wheel’ curse has hit West Ham United hard and the Hammers have been suffering ever since they defeated Manchester United. They have lost 6 of their next 8 matches and have drawn the other two.
Hammers are now 17th in the table – only 3 points ahead of Norwich City in the relegation zone. Pellegrini has not been able to do much in the last 8 games and reports suggest that the board already are in talks with replacements.
#1 – Marco Silva
It is a surprise that Everton have not yet sacked Marco Silva. The Toffees have been abysmal this season and have been struggling in the bottom half of the table.
They have won 4 of their 13 matches this season in the league while losing 7. The team has looked out of order and the tactics have been very similar to that of a Sunday League team.
