The Premier League has officially reached a period that we so fondly regard as the business end of the season. All the teams have played over half their games in the Premier League and now the division has taken shape. There are different battles going on at different ends of the table now and teams are doing all they can to achieve their goals. Bet365 test will allow you to be up to date with everything.
Being a Premier League manager has a lot of challenges. In a League that is largely recognized as the best League on the planet and is by far the richest League amongst Europe’s elite, the desperation to produce results is heavier here than it is anywhere else, regardless of what the goal is.
If as a manager, you are not able to help the club that hired you achieve their set goal (it could range from surviving in the division to qualifying for Europe or winning the League) then there is every chance that you will be shown the door. That is the world these managers live in.
The wealth surrounding the League means it is the most attractive League to play in/manage but as a manager, you could be out the door as quickly as you got in. Already there have been nine sackings this season, with the names of those managers listed below.

Already, the number of sackings this season is on the high side but it is not likely that the managerial revolving door is closing anytime soon. In this article, we take a look at some managers whose jobs are insecure and could be the one(s) to go next.
It would be difficult to say that David Moyes has not done a good job during his time at West Ham. His initial spell as caretaker manager in 2017 saw him help steer the Hammers to safety but he did not get the job at the time.
The former Everton Manager was eventually given the chance to become the permanent manager in December 2019 on an 18-month deal. His first full season with the Hammers saw them play brilliant football and finish sixth in the League. He followed that up with a seventh placed finish last season, ensuring the hammers will play European football for two straight seasons.
This season however, has not been the best for the Scotsman. Last season, West Ham suffered a total of 14 losses after 38 games. We are only 25 games into this season and the Hammers have equaled the same number of defeats with 13 games to spare.
West Ham are 16th in the League with only 23 points won. Their points tally keeps them only one point clear of the relegation zone in what is shaping up to be a relegation battle for the ages.
The hierarchy at the Club have reiterated their trust and confidence in Moyes with Vice Chairman Karren Brady saying that all the team needs is time.
“I can’t put any pressure on David Moyes because he puts enough on himself,” Brady told BBC Sport.
“The really important thing is for everyone to stick together to be really focused, understand what the issues are.
“It’s been a disappointing season. After two great seasons and the success we had in Europe, things haven’t gone the way we wanted.
“We spent an extraordinarily large amount of money in the summer. Undoubtedly, it takes people time to settle in and create a new way of playing with such a lot of new players.”
Although he has been given the vote of confidence, there is every chance he will lose his job at the London Club if League results do not improve.
The Current Chelsea boss finds himself in a difficult situation at the moment. He was hired off the back of the sacking of Thomas Tuchel, a coach who had the full support of the fanbase, not to mention a UEFA Champions League winning coach.
Things started well for the Englishman as it was smooth sailing for them in domestic and European competition but an embarrassing 4-1 loss away to his former club, Brighton, became a catalyst for a horrendous run.
In 13 League games since then, the Blues have only managed two Premier League wins. The performances have rarely been good and when Chelsea do create chances, they struggle to finish them.
A lot of the fanbase have turned on the manager and it sometimes feels like another poor result might lead to Potter getting sacked. One evidence of some of the fans turning on their manager was in a loss to Manchester City in January where Chelsea fans were chanting for Thomas Tuchel in the stands.
Chelsea have expressed their commitment to keeping Graham Potter beyond this summer in order to give him time to mold a newly assembled and bloated squad in his own image after an entire preseason.
The main issue is that Chelsea are 10th on the table, 11 points off the top 4. If they continue to drop points, they will be closer to the relegation zone than the Champions League places.
Something needs to change and it needs to change quickly.
Scott Parker was sacked earlier this season after a 9-0 loss to Liverpool before O’Neil took over. While at the helm, they have not really looked like a team that will stay in the League. Currently 20th on the table, they are level on points with Southampton at the bottom of the table and they are only one point from safety.
The Cherries would have been seen as a favorite for relegation at the start of the season but all hope is not lost for them. A few positive results would see them move out of the drop zone but positive results have been hard to come by for the team.
Southampton, who are on the same boat as they are (like previously mentioned) are already on their third manager of the season as they attempt to ensure survival. It is not impossible for Bournemouth to also consider a third manager as well.
