Can Bielsa survive the Festive period?

With Leeds having fallen to a three-match losing streak in the top flight, pressure is mounting on boss Marcelo Bielsa.

It has been the way that Leeds’ defence has crumbled which has been the most worrying sign for them.

In those three defeats, Leeds conceded a total of 14 goals in losses against Chelsea, Man City and Arsenal.

Granted, those weren’t the easiest of matches. Leeds have been struggling with the lack of depth in their squad as well.

With Leeds still hovering close to the drop zone, will the club keep faith with Bielsa?

Bielsa is the current 3/1 favourite in Next Premier League Manager To Go betting* (odds recorded at 21:48 GMT on December 21st 2021 at Bet365).

Their cause won’t be helped with them scheduled to face Liverpool on Boxing Day.

But they do enter what appears to be a slightly easier run of matches following that.

  • Aston Villa home Dec 28th

  • West Ham away Jan 16th

Everton’s Benitez is still the EPL Sack Race FAV

Everton boss Rafa Benitez is the current 10/11 odds-on favourite in Premier League Sack Race betting* (odds recorded at 21:48 GMT on December 21st 2021 at Bet365).

It’s been some collapse by the Toffees under the Spaniard after a bright start to his tenure.

Everton have lost seven of their last ten league games, winning only one of their last eleven.

So it’s easy to see why Benitez is the current favourite.

The former Liverpool boss always faced a tough transition going to the blue side of the city.

But the fans seem to blame the board more than they do Rafa.

At the end of the day, however, a lack of results is what is going to define how long Benitez stays employed there.

Looking at their next five matches in the top flight, the fixture list for Everton affords Benitez a chance to turn things around.


Everton Next 5 Matches

  • Burnley away Dec 26th
  • Newcastle home Dec 30th
  • Brighton home Jan 2nd
  • Norwich away Jan 15th
  • Aston Villa home Jan 22nd


Ranieri must be sweating

Watford have a bit of a hire and fire mentality at the club, which may not go well for Claudio Ranieri.

The Italian was brought in to turn the club around and heading to the end of the year, the Hornets are just above the drop zone.

It’s been a run of four straight losses for the Hornets.

Six defeats in their last seven games doesn’t bode well for Ranieri’s immediate future.

Watford have been a bit of a shambles at the back, conceding over two goals per home game with no clean sheet.

Ranieri is an 8/1 punt in the Next Premier League Manager To Go market, but he looks far from safe.

The Hornets face a very tricky time of things over the Festive period as well.


Watford’s Next 5 EPL Matches

  • Wolves away Dec 26th
  • West Ham home Dec 28th
  • Tottenham home Jan 1st
  • Newcastle away Jan 15th
  • Norwich home Jan 21st


Anyone else worth a mention?

Southampton are on a long winless streak at the moment, with Ralph Hassenhuttl feeling some heat.

Hasenhuttl is a quote of 7/1 in the EPL Sack Race odds* (odds recorded at 21:48 GMT on December 21st 2021 at Bet365).

It has, however, been a decent home campaign from the Saints.

So that could keep Hasenhuttl ticking along on the south coast if they keep that up. H

Then there’s Eddie Howe who is a 12/1 punt* (odds recorded at 21:48 GMT on December 21st 2021 at Bet365).

Howe has only recently taken over at St James’ Park but Newcastle’s fortunes have barely changed.

One league win all season and a three-match losing streak conceding at least three goals in each.

There are tougher times ahead in the northeast for Howe.
