The firing of managers so early in the season, with shockers from Chelsea, Wolves, and Bournemouth pulling the trigger immediately, best describes the uncertain season so far.
Due to Southampton’s recent dismal play, Ralph Hasenhuttl has once again emerged as the new favourite to be fired as manager.

Southampton was having trouble at the close of the 2021–2022 season, but Hasenhuttl is still in command thanks to the support of the board after multiple 9–0 losses.
This comes after Steve Cooper solidified his tenure at Nottingham Forest despite the club’s dire Premier League position.
Despite investing much in player acquisition, Forest has so far been unable to establish themselves as a cohesive unit.
On Monday night, they play fellow underachievers Aston Villa, where anything can happen, especially for Steven Gerrard, who is currently favoured at 12/1 with Betfair.
Brendan Rodgers, the manager of Leicester, overtook Cooper’s team to move into second-last place after their first league victory at the beginning of October, but they have since suffered seven losses and might be running out of time.
Expectations for Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, are still quite high, and if the team doesn’t win consistently, Klopp’s job may be in jeopardy.
After their 3-2 loss to Arsenal, his odds have dropped from 66/1 to 22/1.
Chelsea’s decision to fire Thomas Tuchel after just six league games is a good illustration of how managers, regardless of their position in the standings, are always at risk of being fired.
After Liverpool’s defeat to Napoli, Jason Cundy warned that no manager is secure, but especially Jurgen Klopp: “Take a look at how Klopp’s career ended at Dortmund; it’s happening again at Liverpool.
By the way, look at the table. We’ve seen Tuchel get fired. Out, Klopp! why not What have the last 18 months brought Liverpool?
It’s happening again at Liverpool, just as how Klopp’s tenure at Dortmund ended.
Vacancy odds for the next manager in the Premier League
- Ralph Hasenhuttl: 3/10
- Brendan Rodgers: 11/4
- Steven Gerrard: 12/1
- Steve Cooper, Jurgen Klopp: 22/1
- David Moyes, Jesse Marsch, Frank Lampard: 33/1
- Patrick Vieira, Erik ten Hag, Marco Silva: 40/1
Given that both teams are in excellent form, Arteta and Guardiola’s odds have changed significantly.
With two straight losses at the beginning of the season, Ten Hag was in contention to be the following manager to be fired, but since then, his odds have slipped and he is now an outsider.
