The Premier League Sack Race - Three Managers to watch this weekend

The Premier League Sack Race

The infamous sack race is hyphening and these are the three managers we'll have a close eye on this weekend in the Premier League.

Harry Redknapp @ 9/1

By the end of December, QPR's gaffer odds for getting sacked we're 40/1, but three important matches without a win, and a shock defeat by Sheffield United at home in the FA Cup have piled the pressure on Harry Redknapp. Also the club's away display are no less than shocking as well, no points in nine matches! This Saturday QPR's are playing a vital clash away against their relegation rivals Burnley, and the loss in this match could see Londoners trailing six points behind if they lose at Turf Moor.

The Clarets have only lost one of their last ten matches against QPR, and will for sure be more than confident that they can extend their opponents dismal losing record on the road, which will subsequently hurl more pressure on Redknapp.

Roberto Martinez @ 13/2

If Redknapp is the one who's feeling the pressure, then we don't even want to imagine what is happening now in the life of Roberto Marinez. Arguably the most under-fire top-flight gaffer has endured a s shocking festive period. Just like Harry the Spanish manager has watched in despair as his odds tumbled down from 50/1 to just 13/2 according to Paddy Power football manager betting specials. And this all happened in a period of three weeks, during which Everton Have lost four consecutive league games, that left the club 13th in the league table and only four points above the relegation zone.

Six defeats in 8 league games is an awful result for a side fighting relegation, let alone one that had pre-season ambitions of challenging for the top four spots in the league. And the bad news don't stop here for the Spanish gaffer as they play against the current league champions Man City; a side who has won 11 and drawn 2 of their last 13 matches in all competitions combined. Worse still Everton have lost their last three games to City, including last season's clash home at Goodison Park. Loss won't probably cost Martinez his seat at Merseyside, but will for sure test the patience of the club's chairman Bill Kenwright.

Steve Bruce @ 4/1

Manager with the highest pressure on his back and the best chance to get sacked is the Hull's gaffer Steve Bruce. Between mid-October and Christmas Hull endured a horrible streak, not managing to win in any of their 10 league games, in which they've lost six of them! As a result of this horrible spell of results, Bruce's future at the KC Stadium was thrown under the spotlight.

However, two wins in three league games have eased the pressure on the 54-year-old, who will be more than happy to ruin Tony Pulis' league debut with West Brom on Saturday. Bruce's achievements of the past couple of seasons could help Bruce survive the sack race this weekend. But it will most definitely give the club's chairman some food for thought ahead of the clubs upcoming clashes against West Ham, Newcastle and the current champions Man City.
