Next EPL Manager To GoBetting at Betfair

Marco Silva – Everton

Some will easily call Silva a justifiable favourite in this market. Everton have not gained an ounce of consistency this season. Things were looking so good for them at the back end of the 2018/19 campaign. The Toffees ended the season in eighth place and lost just one of their final eight fixtures of the season.

A powerful four-match winning streak at home, in which they beat Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United without conceding, signalled that there could be better things to come from Everton this season. But it hasn’t materialised. The fact that Silva has spent a fair chunk of money during his tenure, and it’s not happening for them, is putting the squeeze on.

Everton lost 2-0 at home against the newly promoted Sheffield United on the weekend. However, Everton spent a long time getting Silva because they felt that he was the perfect fit for their club. So after investing in him, and in turn investing in Silva’s vision, it’s unlikely that the Toffees are going to pull the trigger too quickly.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – Man Utd

Manchester United are in disarray at the moment. Were the Red Devils too hasty in giving the managerial role to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer permanently? Probably, because after his initial bubble burst, it’s been all downhill for Manchester United. Even though the Red Devils are struggling with injuries, tactically they have looked a bit clueless this season.

They gambled in selling their one genuine out and out striker, Romelu Lukaku with no direct replacement. Their midfield without Paul Pogba (who is currently injured) is non-existent. There is just no depth whatsoever at the club and United as a team, rolled over without much resistance in a 2-0 loss at West Ham on the weekend.

The Red Devils only finished sixth in the table last season. They are down in eighth at the moment with one win in five and face Arsenal and Liverpool in two of their next three league games. With no Champions League football this season, it would be hard for them to attract a top name, although there are some out there like Max Allegri and potentially Zinedine Zidane as life seems uncomfortable for him at Real Madrid at the moment.

Dean Smith – Aston Villa

Of the newcomers to the Premier League this season, Aston Villa were the ones of which the most was excepted. They spent heavily in the summer to try and be competitive in the top flight. While there have been some promising moments from them, missed opportunities are pretty much the story of their season so far. Six games into the campaign and they are performing the worst of the newly promoted clubs.

While Norwich and Sheffield United have each claimed two wins each, it’s been just the one from Aston Villa. In their last two games they have faced ten-man opposition and have still failed to win their games. The extra money that was spent is just a huge factor in Smith being in the running to get the sack. There has to be a return on those investments.

Villa can’t wait until things are dire. They are sticking in there at home and with a run of games against Burnley, Norwich and Brighton coming up, if their position hasn’t improved after that then Smith is going to be in huge trouble. They then face Man City and Liverpool in back to back games.

Nuno Espirito Santo – Wolves

Wolves boss Nuno has a lot on his plate at the moment. After guiding the club to a seventh-place finish last season in the top flight, that was always a high bar to try and live up to. What has hampered them this season in the Premier League is the Europa League qualification campaign. While they successfully made it through to reach the group stage of the competition, they have looked flat and lethargic in the Premier League.

It has taken something out of them. They are winless in the English top-flight this season, but Nuno knows the club inside out, has built the extremely talented squad. It may just take a little time to get it coming together, but they are good enough to do that. If they were still in the relegation zone early next year then Nuno should be under pressure. He’ll be given time to turn things around. There’s few better than Wolves could get under the circumstances.

Others feeling the heat

Steve Bruce was one of the hot favourites at the start of the season to be the first to get the sack. With the Magpies only above the drop zone by a point, his job has to still be in a precarious position. Newcastle have, however, only lost one of their last four which was against Liverpool. So there has been a bit of a fightback after a poor start.

Brighton are having struggles. They opened the season with a great victory but have been able to add to it. They have a good manager in Graham Potter and he has gotten them playing much more open and attractive stuff this season. He’ll probably be given more time and isn’t going to feel the heat at the Amex like Bruce is on Tyneside.

You have Daniel Farke at Norwich, but the Canaries have such an identity under the German that they look capable of taking points off other potential relegation candidates. Crystal Palace’s Roy Hodgson has a team which lacks goals. They are holding up at the moment, but it may not take much for things to turn sour there

At the other end of the table, there is Mauricio Pochettino who potentially could be lured to Real Madrid if the Spanish giants part company with Zinedine Zidane. Who will be the next Premier League Manager to go?
