Next Premier League manager sacked: Updated odds for sixth boss to be fired in 2022/23 as Southampton dismiss Ralph Hasenhuttl

We're little more than three months into the new Premier League season and we've already had a handful of managers who've been canned.

Scott Parker became the first managerial casualty of the 2022/23 Premier League campaign when the ex-England international left Bournemouth on August 30.

A 9-0 hammering at Liverpool, allied with a post-match interview in which a clearly unhappy Parker appeared to take aim at the club's transfer policy, were followed three days later by the Cherries announcing his shock departure after a mere four league matches.

Thomas Tuchel was the next to go in early September with Chelsea firing the man that won them a UEFA Champions League title just 15 months prior. A 1-0 loss to Dinamo Zagreb in the same competition saw the Blues' new ownership pull the trigger on Tuchel's time at the club.

Bruno Lage was next out the door after Wolves dropped into the bottom three with a limp 2-0 defeat at West Ham on October 1. Lage managed only one win in his final 15 matches at Molineux, with Wolves' woeful tally of three goals in eight matches this season making them the lowest scorers in the Premier League.

Steven Gerrard became the fourth Premier League manager sacked, given the axe a swift 75 minutes after a 3-0 defeat to Fulham at Craven Cottage on October 20 that left Villa teetering above the relegation zone. Villa had gone four matches without a run, with draws against fellow relegation candidates Nottingham Forest and Leeds United plus the loss to Fulham and defeat to Chelsea.

Ralph Hasenhuttl saw his time at Southampton come to an end following their 4-1 home defeat to Newcastle United on November 6. Saints had won just two of their past 11 league matches and were sitting two points off the bottom of the table when Hasenhuttl's departure was announced.

You know the next one is not too far behind. Here's the list of managers who could be on the chopping block.

Next Premier League manager sacked odds

According to Sky Bet, Frank Lampard is now the clear favourite to be the next Premier League manager to depart. Everton fans were furious following the 3-0 loss at Bournemouth on November 12 and the former Chelsea boss is now odds-on to be the next to go.

David Moyes is second-favourite, with West Ham having lost at home to Leicester City before the World Cup break. Leeds United's Jesse Marsch, who oversaw a 4-3 loss to Tottenham Hotspur on November 12, is third.

In a sign of the potentially tough task awaiting the new Wolves manager, Julen Lopetegui has shorter odds than 12 other Premier League bosses to be the next one fired, even though he won't actually take charge until November 14.

Odds as of November 13, 2022.

Manager Club


(Sky Bet — UK)

Frank Lampard Everton 4/9
David Moyes West Ham 3/1
Graham Potter Chelsea 8/1
Jesse Marsch Leeds United 12/1
Steve Cooper Nottingham Forest 12/1
Antonio Conte Tottenham Hotspur 14/1
Brendan Rodgers Leicester 25/1
Julen Lopetegui Wolves 25/1
Jurgen Klopp Liverpool 25/1
Marco Silva Fulham 25/1

Leicester City's Brendan Rodgers at one point was in Hasenhuttl's shoes as the Foxes spent most of the opening weeks at the bottom of the league, but his odds are now the same as Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp, Lopetegui, and Fulham's Marco Silva.

Graham Potter is at 16/1, the same as Rodgers, after going four games without a league win at Chelsea.

First manager sacked in each Premier League season

The first manager sacked in Premier League history was Ian Porterfield of Chelsea, who lasted a whopping 29 matches before seeing the axe in mid-February.

The fastest manager ever sacked in the Premier League was Kenny Dalglish, who was ousted at Newcastle United after just two matches into the 1998/99 season. Peter Reid, Bobby Robson, Frank de Boer, and Javi Gracia were all given the boot after just four matches.

Tottenham are the club that appears on this list the most, having been the first to part ways with their manager in four seasons. Newcastle appear three times, as do Chelsea and Sunderland.

Scott Parker's exit in 2022/23 came extremely early: On average, the first Premier League manager is sacked after 10.8 games, which would entail a mid-October timing during the 2022/23 season. Matchweek 10 is scheduled for October 8-10, while Matchweek 11 is set for October 14-16.

Betting on first manager sacked or next manager

When betting on the first manager sacked in a Premier League season, it's important to pay close attention to the title of the bet.

Sometimes, managers can depart of their own accord, or by "mutual consent," leading to some questions around what constitutes being "sacked."

Officially, the bet is often titled "Next Premier League Manager to Leave their Club" which eliminates much of the confusion around what constitutes being fired, released, let go, or departing by mutual consent.

Additionally, when placing bets involving "Next Manager" for a club, the word "Permanent" is often included, meaning interim managers are not given consideration for a winning bet. Thus, if a manager is given an "interim" tag as a replacement, the bet remains open until the "interim" tag is removed or a new permanent boss is hired from elsewhere.
