Here are five Premier League managers who are most likely to get the sack this season.
5) Paul Lambert
Aston Villa are flying high with seven points from the first three games of the season, but it wasn’t long ago that Paul Lambert’s job was in serious danger. At the end of last season not only did the club narrowly escape relegation, but Lambert’s two longest serving assistants were let go for poor conduct. If he can manage to keep the Villains in the top half then his job will surely remain secure, but with a tough run ahead of them we could see the Birmingham based side plummet down the table.
