Next Premier League manager to go: who are the favourites?

Although we have recently had a spate of sackings in the Premier League, there are still a few managers whose jobs appear less than secure.


Frank Lampard on the brink?

Everton are circling the drain near the foot of the Premier League table, recently losing to Burnley in a simply disastrous midweek capitulation at Turf Moor.

Despite finding themselves 2-1 up against Sean Dyche’s men, the Toffees surrendered their lead to lose 3-2, moving both clubs to within touching distance of each other.

Given the run-in of Frank Lampard’s men, facing Manchester United, Leicester (twice), Liverpool and Chelsea in their next five games, not to mention that final day journey to top four-chasing Arsenal, Everton are facing the all too daunting possibility of dropping out of the Premier League for the first time ever.

Despite their current predicament, Lampard insists he is not feeling the pressure, as his experience as Chelsea manager taught him that you are only ever a few bad results away from facing the sack.

“I spent 18 months at Chelsea where you are always two games from the sack,” Lampard said.

“In the Premier League you sign up for that, I’ve got no problem with that. We’re a huge club, people want to talk about it.

“We’ve got no right to not be fighting a battle with relegation. But what I am is proud to manage here.”

“We’re working towards becoming a better team, with better results, performance, mentality. When great players say things like that – that’s a good challenge. We have to be controlled and ‘nasty’ if that’s the right word.”

Brendan Rodgers tempted to leave King Power?

Brendan Rodgers may have looked untouchable after leading Leicester to FA Cup glory last season, but the Foxes have been unable to build on it. Having just missed out on Champions League football in each of the past two seasons, Leicester have fallen to 10th and are underwhelming in 2021/22.

The Foxes have lost more Premier League games than they have won, and although they are nowhere near relegation, there are fears of stagnation. And they were dumped out of the FA Cup in emphatic fashion, losing 4-1 to Championship side Nottingham Forest while also going five games without victory in the Premier League.

“It has been a challenging season, there is no getting away from that,” Rodgers said back in February.

“When you lose games, you have to accept you are going to be criticised. But from a personal perspective, I always try to stay calm and stay in control of everything.

“I have never been one where my mood shifts depending on what other people will write or say. Unfortunately now I am experienced enough to regulate whatever pressures.

“It wasn’t that long ago you are deemed an elite manager having won the FA Cup and now very quickly you are not. But I love working with the players here and love the people at the club. That is all I will continue to do with a smile and enjoyment until someone tells me differently.

“If they do, I will have done my very best with the resources I have, then I will move on. But until then I have a big energy for the team and the club and for my contract here.”
