With the Premier League back underway again after the extended summer break due to the global pandemic caused by Covid-19, many fans are delighted to see their teams back on the big screen even if they aren’t able to be back in the stadiums yet. However, some teams haven’t started their campaigns as well as they’d have liked to, and with some managers now under pressure due to this and are looking to avoid being the first to be sacked; today we assess their chances.
Leading the line of first manager to leave their post in the Premier League is that of Fulham’s manager Scott Parker – although we knew it was always going to be a difficult year for the London club, they did have some promising fixtures that they could have taken early points from. Alternatively, they’ve conceded 10 goals in 3 games, two of which against relegation rivals Aston Villa and Leeds United where they should be looking to get more out of the game. Scott Parker is currently favourite to get relegated first at 13/8.

Next on the list is that of David Moyes from West Ham who was flickering with the sack at the end of last season but seemed to scrape through by the skin of his teeth. They have played three, won one against Wolves last week 4-0 which was an impressive display and lost two in which they looked bitterly disappointing. Very up and down start to the season, and if Moyes cannot steady the ship he might be the first to go at odds as short at 7/2.
During the off season of the Premier League, many football punters had to find alternative ways to try and produce a profit from the comfort of their own homes and this is where online casinos have benefitted. At The Best Casinos, they have seen a surge of numbers migrate from usual football betting markets which have been limited during the off season and onto their live casino markets and there’s no surprise why this is when looking at the quality of casino on offer.
Finally, on the list of managers in the Premier League who look most likely to be sacked first is surprisingly that of Frank Lampard from Chelsea. Even though the Englishman has legendary status at the London club, they have spent over £200 million in the transfer window this summer, and with high expectations of Chelsea fans, if he doesn’t deliver now he may be in line to get sacked first at 10/1
