Manuel Pellegrini, Marco Silva, Unai Emery, Ole Gunnar Solskjær: Who’s hot seat is the hottest? What one of the four managers named will be the next to exit the Premier League?
It’s rare to see this many Premier League managers looking over their shoulders in November, but following Mauricio Pochettino’s departure, it’s become a question of not if, but when and who the next one will be.
Unai Emery’s Arsenal side made it six games without a win on Saturday and was booed off after their 2-2 draw with Southampton. It’s been a long time coming, and now it appears the heat is becoming unbearable for the Gunner man.
West Ham hosted Jose Mourinho’s first game in charge of Spurs, and it was a game that saw both ends of the spectrum; Jose’s emphatic win was the perfect start for the new Tottenham boss but pushed Manuel Pellegrini further onto the chopping block.
On the blue side of Merseyside, Norwich hadn’t scored an away goal since August, but piled the pressure on Marco Silva, as goals from Todd Cantwell and Denis Srbeny secured a comprehensive 2-0 win.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær is perhaps the most scrutinized manager right now and did himself no favours over the weekend, both on the pitch and in the press room post-game.
Manchester United played out an exciting 3-3 draw with Sheffield United, but despite United’s spirited comeback, they remain in 9th position, and 9 points adrift of the top four.
There are plenty of hot seats around the Premier League right now, so let’s take a look at who will go first…
