Disregard Whispers Of Puel, Hodgson, and Dyche: Odds Slashed With New Contender In Premier League Manager Sack Race

Happy New Year!
Happy New Year!

2019 may not be shaping up to be a Happy New Year for several Premier League managers.

Seven straight defeats in a row for Huddersfield has left David Wagner teetering, but the German may have felt a nice, gentle, comforting breeze following news that one of his peers has had his odds drastically shortened after yet another disappointing result.

Marco Silva has suffered a torrid festive season with Everton that has seen back-to back defeats to Brighton & Hove Albion, and - at Goodison Park - Leicester City.

These dropped points come mere days after a demolition by Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs on Merseyside, with a number of home fans taking to the exits at half-time, disconcerted with their team’s performance.

Astonishingly Everton have splurged an incredible £362 million in the past three years, with no discernible results.

Silva’s arrival, following a prolonged flirtation while the Spaniard was at Watford, was meant to herald a new era at the Toffees, attempting to put the club amongst the upper echelons of the Premier League elite.

Instead it seems the club - one of only six to have contested every season of the Premier League - are indeed the great pretenders.

The 41-year-old finds himself moved in at 14/1 in the reckoning to be the next manager to leave his post. After the Foxes’ results, the odds have been slashed from 25/1 the previous day.

Everton have slumped to a woeful 10th in the table, 27 points and and a zero goal difference after 21 games, with the early kickoff on New Year’s Day meaning the team have to wait to see whether other clubs such as Brighton, Bournemouth and West Ham United leapfrog them.
