Which Premier League manager will leave their club next?

Tuesday 31st October 2017
We've already seen three Premier League managerial departures within the opening 10 Premier League games. Frank de Boer was ousted at Crystal Palace, followed by Leicester City calling time on Craig Shakespeare's reign, then Everton relieved Ronald Koeman of his duties at Goodison Park.

With the season becoming more telling as the fixtures come thick and heavy, we take a look at the odds on the next Premier League manager to leave his post.

Sean Dyche - 4/11

Sean Dyche has done remarkably well to remain in his post as Burnley manager for such a long time. Five impressive years at Turf Moor has brought him great success. He has enjoyed two well-earned promotions to the Premier League, and he is looking to retain his club's Premier League status for another season.
Dyche's success and loyalty to Burnley, however, means he is now the favourite to take over at Everton, which is clearly a step up. This is a great opportunity for him to showcase his skills at a better set up. And at odds of 4/11, he's a pretty strong candidate.

Slaven Bilic - 4/1

His managerial career at West Ham began positively, but Mr Bilic's time at the club has been slowly deteriorating for quite a while. Once upon a time, while at Upton Park, Bilic had the Hammers in the Premier League's top half, with Dmitri Payet at his disposal. Times have changed though.
Bilic now finds himself at a new home where his team still can't find their feet. With less quality in the squad whilst the board are losing confidence in his ability. Bilic had been widely tipped as the favourite to be sacked first this season, and sitting in the relegation places certainly isn't doing his prospects of staying any good.

Roy Hodgson - 10/1

Hodgson only took over as Crystal Palace boss in September after an incredibly poor start to the season by the Eagles. The former Liverpool boss has a wealth of experience with both Premier League and international teams. It's a surprise to see Hodgson listed as the third favourite to lose his job next, as he has what it takes to guide his side out of the relegation zone.
Even if Palace fail to improve, the club would be foolish to sack another manager before the end of the season. Should the worst happen, they would have a top quality manager working for them in the Championship, similar to Newcastle United last season. At odds of 10/1, it isn't great value. Hodgson won't leave anytime soon.

Paul Clement - 10/1

Arguably, whoever was in charge at Swansea is likely to feature high up in the Premier League sack race. The Swans have had difficulty finding the right manager in the past, with less than satisfactory football being played at the Liberty Stadium in recent times.
Clement and his team are lurking just outside of the relegation zone with just eight points from their opening ten games. Times look to be tough at the moment, as ever, for the Swans. A price of 10/1 may well prove to be good value.

Marco Silva - 13/1

I cannot get my head around this one. Marco Silva is doing an astonishing job as Watford manager. He has already guided his team to a win over Arsenal while almost holding the champions to a 2-2 draw a couple of weeks ago. Watford find themselves sitting in 8th place, which is already an over-achievement.
Watford's next three games are very winnable, so expect the odds of 13/1 to slide after the Hornets begin picking up points again after a difficult past few games. The Portuguese manager has already proven himself last season, almost pulling the unthinkable off with Hull City. It would be a major surprise if Silva is the next Premier League manager to go, either by his own volition or otherwise.
