While both north London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham may enjoy their record-setting starts in 2022/23, some other clubs have really failed to climb out of the traps.
While the likes of Nottingham Forest continue to struggle after ending their exile from the Premier League this summer, Bruno Lage has also found himself out of a job following Wolves’ sacking earlier this month.
With the 2022 FIFA World Cup fast approaching in Qatar and the long break before the start of the New Year, some expect a festive rollercoaster could take place behind the scenes of the top clubs.
In the list below, we’ve taken a look at who the bookmakers have appointed as their top Premier League bosses to be sacked sooner rather than later.
Steven Gerrard – Aston Villa
While Steven Gerrard may have been quick to praise his team’s performance on Sunday afternoon, Aston Villa ended up suffering a 2-0 home defeat to Chelsea and mood in their camp appears to be at an alarmingly low level.
While the former Rangers boss may have counted on him to be a real European player this season, Gerrard’s side currently have just one point to keep them out of the relegation zone.
With many in the Midlands fearing they could end up in the bottom three this year, the ex-Liverpool icon is more than aware of the growing pressure on his shoulders.
Along with a pair of wins in their first 10 Premier League matches, Villa have shown the same problems that plagued them until the summer break.
In fact, continuing last season, Gerrard’s struggling team has only managed four top-flight victories from their previous 21 attempts – a streak that dates back to March 10.

Ralph Hasenhutl – Southampton

While the Saints may have almost clung to a generous 1-1 draw at home to West Ham over the weekend, that doesn’t cover what was a nightmarish Premier League performance for Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men.
Showcasing a number of issues on both sides of the September international break, the former RB Leipzig boss has found his stance to be increasingly considerate since the opening of the 2022/23 campaign.
After picking up just one point from any of their previous five Premier League matches, Southampton are now in the bottom three and have won just two top-flight victories since mid-April.
Struggling to find the most clinical benefit, the Saints have also gained a reputation for their rather egregious problems on the south coast.
With just a couple of Premier League wins at St Mary’s in the past eight months, Hasenhüttl is currently ranked at 21/10 With Betfair to get a chop.
Brendan Rodgers – Leicester
While Leicester’s hierarchy may have made it clear they’re not interested in parting ways with Brendan Rodgers, it’s hard to drown out all the noise that surrounds the former Liverpool boss.
While Rodgers may have led Leicester to their first FA Cup victory just 17 months ago, the Foxes are going through a losing streak in the Premier League and, surprisingly, find themselves in the middle of a relegation spat.
Despite a 0-0 draw at home against Crystal Palace at the weekend, Leicester have only won once in the top flight since the start of the 2022/23 campaign.
By not adding any real additions to his roster over the summer and leaving many around King Power disillusioned, some feel that Rogers’ position is getting more untenable by the week.
