Five Premier League Managers Who Are Next In Line To Lose Their Jobs 

Following Jesse Marsch’s dismissal from Leeds this week, we are examining which other Premier League managers are likely to face job loss.

Managing a top-tier team in English football is a challenging role. With the high amounts of money involved and decreasing tolerance from fans, few managers remain in their positions for extended periods.

Our top five list features some well-known names that may come as a shock, but with recent developments, it’s possible we’ll see some notable departures in the near future.

5. Jurgen Klopp – Liverpool

Bookmakers have surprisingly low odds for Jürgen Klopp’s departure from Liverpool, with odds ranging from 12/1 to 14/1 despite his successful tenure with the club.

The 2022/23 season has been a disappointment for Liverpool, currently sitting in 10th place.

 There’s a possibility that Klopp may leave, but it will depend on his confidence in the club’s transfer spending plans for the summer. However, with the club up for sale, he may not receive the assurances he needs.

4. Graham Potter – Chelsea

Graham Potter, appointed as Chelsea manager in September, has struggled to establish his impact on the team.

A win rate of only 40.9% from his 22 games in charge has put Potter under immediate pressure.

Due to the London club’s owners making significant investments in the January transfer window, Potter is under even more scrutiny to form a successful team from a squad that has been given £600 million in spending since last summer.

3. Gary O’Neil – Bournemouth

Gary O’Neil, who was appointed before Bournemouth’s takeover by American businessman Billy Foley, is a potential candidate for job loss.

With several new additions in January, O’Neil is expected to improve the club’s fortunes after they fell into the relegation zone.

His win rate of only 20% is not promising, so a change in the manager position at Vitality Stadium may occur before May.

2. Pep Guardiola – Manchester City

Given the recent Premier League charges against Manchester City, it’s not surprising to see Pep Guardiola high on the list of potential job losses.

Guardiola, who has a remarkable record at the club, is not in danger of being sacked, but may choose to leave if the controversy surrounding the club becomes overwhelming.

Bookmakers have odds of 7/2 to 9/2 for Guardiola to be the next Premier League manager to depart his position.

1. Nathan Jones – Southampton

The Saints’ owners, Sports Republic, have backed manager Jones this week despite his bizarre press conference in which he appeared to buckle under pressure.

Jones went on a rant about being the best in Europe after last weekend’s 3-0 loss to Brentford, despite his team losing six of the seven league matches under his leadership.

The fans of Southampton have already turned against Jones, and many believe he is grossly overmatched at this level.
