As we get closer to the end of 2021, there have been two Premier League managers sacked so far this season. I honestly believe that by the end of December at least two more will have joined the list. The first manager to be axed in the Premier League was Xisco Munoz at Watford as he lost his job on October 3. The second manager – and it was no surprise – was Steve Bruce. He was dismissed just days after his 1000th game as manager as the new owners want to go in a different direction. For the sake of the supporters, let’s hope that direction is up rather than down. Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the one under the most pressure, but will he be the next one to face the axe?

The Sack Race

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (Man Utd)

No surprises with this one. OGS is under so much pressure, I wouldn’t be shocked if he was sacked within minutes of this story going live. As a player the United fans adored Solskjaer, but as a manager, they are getting frustrated that he cannot get one of the most talented squads in the league to play as a team. They were embarrassed by fierce rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford as they went down 5-0. Footage of supporters leaving the game at half-time could be the straw that broke the camel’s back. I like OGS, but he is not cutting it as a Premier League manager. His odds are so short because he must be sacked soon.

Daniel Farke (Norwich City)

Norwich showed Daniel Farke a lot of loyalty when they gave him the opportunity to get the Canaries promoted back to the Premier League after he took them down. Farke got Norwich promoted at the first attempt, but once again City and Farke look well out of their depth. The Canaries are rock bottom of the Premier League with two points from nine matches. A few more defeats and the Norwich board could decide to go in another direction.

Dean Smith (Aston Villa)

Dean Smith did a great job in keeping Aston Villa in the Premier League last season, but he is struggling a little bit this year. The sale of Jack Grealish to Manchester City allowed him to make a number of signings, but at the moment they are not gelling with the rest of the side. The Villains are in 13th position with three wins. They were outplayed by Arsenal last time out as they were beaten 3-1. They were quite honestly poor, and more performances like that could see the fans turn on Smith and force the powers-that-be to pull the trigger.

Rafael Benitez (Everton)

This one might be coming from left field, but stranger things have happened in football. Former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is still finding it hard to win over some Everton supporters because of his past with their fierce rivals. Benitez is a quality manager and will need time to get it right. Unfortunately, being an ex-Red, the Blues fans will not give him that time. They demand success now. A few more home defeats like their 5-2 hammering at the hands of Watford, and the crowd could really start to get on his back.

No Manager To Leave 

The odds on this one are very high for the plain and simple fact that we will not end the current Premier League with the same managers in the same jobs. It’s a fun bet to back, but realistically there will be plenty of movement between now and May.
