Slaven Bilic and Chris Wilder are the favourites to leave next

At the time of writing, West Brom gaffer Slaven Bilic is the most likely manager to leave the Premier League first.  

Bookies currently price the Croat up as 13/5 clear favourite, ahead of struggling Blades boss Chris Wilder, who is 7/2.  

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finds himself as 4/1 third favourite, although is as short as 6/4 with multiple firms. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the most-backed in the market

The aforementioned Norwegian is by far the punters’ most popular pick for first manager to leave, attracting 40% of all bets over the last seven days.  

Solskjaer’s price in the market has fluctuated throughout the season, much like United’s inconsistent results.  

Within the space of just three months, Solskjaer has bounced from 33/1, into 5/4, back out to 11/2 and is now best price of just 4/1.  

Will any Premier League manager leave this season?  

An interesting narrative usually towards the end of the season, bookies have clipped in odds on no manager being sacked in 2020/21.  

Odds have been cut from 250/1 into 150/1 that everyone keeps their role this year. With the current financial climate of the Premier League, could it be too costly to sack the likes of Ole?  

A small percentage of punters seem to think so, with 6% of all bets backing no boss to leave.
