Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo has been tipped as the next Premier League to be fired after Frank Lampard and Slaven Bilic.
Wolves are currently sitting 14th on the table with 23 points after 21 top-flight games - their worst performance in the league in the last few seasons.
His side's latest defeat came after their 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace at the suffered at Selhurst Park over the weekend, and this makes him the favourite to be shown the exit doors first.
Stats show that the Molineux Stadium outfit has won just one of their last EPL games since Raul Jimenez fractured his skull against Arsenal in November.
Santo's chances of getting sacked rose after his side sits just three places above the relegation zone and he has been priced at odds 7/4 by bookmakers to part ways with his club soon.
When asked if it was his toughest spell in charge at Molineux, Nuno replied according to SunSport:
"For sure, yes. Not only for us but for all the teams. "The edge the atmosphere that gives you. But honestly, is it the biggest challenge ahead of us? Yes it is. We should step up for it.
"It takes hard work and commitment from all of us. It’s something we have to sit down and talk about. We must improve fast."
Below is the list of Premier League managers who could be sacked this campaign - Paddy Power
- Nuno Espirito Santo - 7/4
- Steve Bruce - 5/2
- Roy Hodgson - 5/1
- Sam Allardyce - 6/1
- Graham Potter - 15/2
- Chris Wilder - 10/1
- Scott Parker - 12/1
Croatian-born manager Bilic was the first to be shown the exit doors when West Brom sacked him on December 16 after leaving his side with seven points from 13 games.
However, a few weeks after his departure, The Baggies have stepped up one place to 19th on the table and if they continue, they might avoid the drop eventually.
Lampard became the second casualty following his sack on January 25 - the Blues were ninth on the table.
The Stamford Bridge side have moved to seventh a few days into Thomas Tuchel's reign and it could become better for the former champions.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Danny Drinkwater has come under heavy criticism as he posted a celebratory picture on social media after Frank Lampard's sacking.
The 42-year-old has been relieved of his duties as head coach of the Blues despite guiding his side to a 3-1 win over Luton Town in their FA Cup meeting over the weekend.
Tammy Abraham scored all three goals for the Stamford Bridge outfit but that was not enough to save the job of the club legend.
