Who will be the next Premier League manager to leave his job? We discuss the leading candidates and bring you the latest betting odds for the Sack Race.

Crystal Palace and West Ham United have made dreadful starts to the 2017-18 Premier League season and their managers are coming under serious pressure to keep their jobs.

Three clubs headed into the international break without a point from their first three matches, although Bournemouth could feel very unlucky at gaining no reward after conceding a winner deep into stoppage time against Manchester City.

Therefore, Cherries boss Eddie Howe is an outsider in the Premier League Sack Race market, but there is little in the way of mitigation for Frank de Boer and Slaven Bilic and their futures are coming under plenty of scrutiny.

Bilic presided over a patchy campaign for West Ham last term which included five straight defeats through March and into April, and so this is not the first time his position has been on the line.

The Croat, a former West Ham player, has completed two full seasons as the club’s manager but the situation is very different at Crystal Palace, who only appointed De Boer this summer after Sam Allardyce resigned having steered them away from relegation trouble.

De Boer, 47, led Ajax to four consecutive Eredivisie titles but flopped at Inter Milan last season, lasting only 85 days in charge, and three consecutive defeats to nil, two of them at home against Huddersfield and Swansea City, suggest another failure could be on the cards.

The original favourite in this market was Newcastle United’s Rafael Benitez, but the Magpies’ 3-0 victory at home to West Ham meant the bookmakers pushed out his odds as other managers were shortened.

The reason for the Spaniard’s prominence in the betting was less to do with his suitability for the job and more because of his reported unhappiness with Newcastle’s summer transfer dealings, and if he does choose to walk away he could find interest from long-time admirers West Ham!

Among the perennially most successful Premier League clubs, Arsene Wenger is starting to come under pressure again after Arsenal lost two of their first three games including a 4-0 drubbing at Liverpool, while Chelsea title-winner Antonio Conte is another boss who has reportedly been at odds with his club’s board about the signing of new players.
