Nuno Espirito Santo became the third Premier League manager to lose his job this season, despite the campaign being just 10 games old.

The Portuguese manager was dismissed following Tottenham Hotspur’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester United last weekend, with fans appearing to turn on him and his methods as they were not producing the results desired.

Nuno joined Xisco and Steve Bruce as being the other top-flight managers to have already lost their job this season, with Watford and Newcastle United having looked to make changes as soon as they felt it was necessary.

There are, though, a number of other managers who could be about to join them in the jobcentre in the near future, with a large number of them currently under pressure in their roles in the hotseat. Naturally, these individuals will be amongst the betting options for many who look for the best bookmakers available at that provides punters with the opportunity to place a wager on the so-called sack race.

An article by The Independent has outlined just who could be on the chopping block in the near future, although the names suggested should not come as too much of a surprise in truth.

Despite getting Nuno sacked, Manchester United’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still an individual who will have a huge weight on his shoulders and one that will only get heavier each time his team does not perform. Of course, the 5-0 hammering by Liverpool at Old Trafford did not help and another bad result could be the final nail in his coffin.

Another name mentioned is Everton’s Rafa Benitez, with the Spaniard currently under pressure after a run of poor results. Having made a flying start like Spurs, the Toffees are now on a run that has seen them lose four of their last six league games.

Dean Smith is another manager that will be facing the heat surrounding his job at the moment as the Aston Villa boss has seen his boyhood side struggle this season without Jack Grealish. The Villans are on a dreadful run of form and are currently sitting in a precarious position above the relegation zone. However, it is not like Villa have been here before, though.

Lastly, Norwich City’s Daniel Farke will have to be considered a man under pressure, despite the model of business that the Canaries continue to adopt and follow. The club has failed to take to the Premier League once again, and whilst they might be exceptional in the Championship, patience must be wearing thin regarding their performances in England’s top-flight.
