Premier League Sack Race Odds Update: Featuring Frank Lampard, Thomas Tuchel and Roy Hodgson

Frank Lampard has lost 5 of his 6 Premier League games as Everton manager
Frank Lampard has lost 5 of his 6 Premier League games as Everton manager

The rapidly approaching international break is a notoriously nail-biting period for managers, with March’s break-in-play offering impatient owners the opportunity to make a late change ahead of the season’s run-in.

We’ve already seen nine managerial exits in the Premier League this season, could a tenth soon be on the horizon?

Below we take an updated inspection at the next Premier League manager to leave market, which has been a hive of activity in the last week…

Football Tips

Will Frank Lampard survive the season?

A frustrated fanbase fearing the worst, wins harder to come by than a Roy Keane compliment, and the severe threat of a first relegation since 1950/51. Everton are in big trouble.

Frank Lampard’s appointment was supposed to invigorate a stagnating club. Instead, the early signs have been worrying. Lampard has lost five of his opening six Premier League matches in charge, a shocking return, which leaves the Toffees 17th in the table; only goal difference keeps them out of the relegation zone.

Everton’s myriad of problems obviously extends far further back than Lampard’s arrival - they’ve won two and lost 15 of their last 20 league games - but while they have games in hand upon their rivals, they have a daunting 12-game run-in jam-packed with difficult matches against Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Man Utd, as well as nerve-shredding six-pointers against Watford and Brentford.

The bookies’ are losing confidence in Lampard, who now finds himself as short as 7/2 to be the tenth Premier League manager to leave, having spent just six weeks in the job. 

He needs to whip up a winning-recipe pronto, starting with three points on Thursday against Eddie Howe’s revitalised Toon Army.

Premier League Relegation Odds

Odds correct as of 2022-10-07 14:30 Odds subject to change.

What’s the latest on Thomas Tuchel?

In the immediate aftermath of last week’s seismic events which hurled the future of Chelsea into doubt, Thomas Tuchel’s odds were shredded from 50/1 to 4/1 in the Premier League Sack Race.

Simultaneously, his odds to become the next Man Utd manager were slashed from 33/1 to 7/2, making him the third favourite for the job.

Tuchel, who has since delivered back-to-back league wins, has moved to reassure fans of his short-term future at Stamford Bridge:

“There's no doubt I stay until the end of the season. We just have to wait day by day because everything can change”.

However, his future after the doors close on the campaign remains unclear, as does Chelsea’s. Could United pounce on any uncertainty as they bid to step up their search for a new permanent manager? With up to six clubs reportedly monitoring the German’s movements, he can also be found at 13/2 to return to PSG, should Mauricio Pochettino leave this summer.

Could Watford make a third change?

In the build-up to Watford’s trip to Southampton, there were rumours doing the rounds that Roy Hodgson could be toast if the Hornets failed to get a result.

A club no stranger to sacking managers - three were axed in their last Premier League season, and two so far this term - Hodgson may well have been fearing the worst following a return of one win from eight games.

However, Hodgson’s men took advantage of an out-of-sorts-Southampton to claim a prized three points which leaped them level with Everton on 22 points - albeit the Hertfordshire club have played three games more.

With the international break looming, that win could potentially be huge for Hodgson. Who knows that the hierarchy could have done if Watford had lost, given that the club don’t play again until April. The task now for Hodgson is to make sure the three-week gap doesn't burst momentum, both the boss and his trusty sidekick Ray Lewington will no doubt see the pause in play as a positive as it gives them valuable time on the training pitch.

Hodgson, at 74 the oldest ever Premier League boss, does remain the 9/4 frontrunner in the next top-flight manager to leave market. While the club’s next game away to Liverpool is a free-hit of sorts, it’s the two games after that against Leeds and Brentford which could play a huge role in both Hodgson’s and Watford’s fate.

Anything else of note?

Leicester's inconsistent season continues, leaving Rodgers priced at 7/1 in the market. 12th in the table and nothing of note to play for apart from a top-10 finish, the focus will be on winning the Europa Conference League; a competition Rodgers belittled a few months ago.

The bookies' are still offering odds of 3/1 for no more exits this season.
