5 Premier League managers who are not likely to survive the full season

It’s just days to the start of the English Premier League and already all the clubs are bracing up for what is expected to be one of the most competitive seasons yet.

Based on results from the preseason games, it is fair to say that some clubs look better prepared than others going into the campaign.

As a result, there will be pressure on some managers too to deliver. But this is the Premier League, and a poor start to the season could only spell doom for the spells of some coaches.

Below are five managers who are unlikely to survive the full season:

1. Jose Mourinho

The Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is rated by the bookmakers as the topmost candidate to be sacked in the course of the season.

The Portuguese has been moaning and complaining about anything and everything during his side’s pre-season games and looks like a frustrated man.

Everything points to the fact that Mourinho himself knows that the upcoming season would be very crucial and failure will not be accepted at Old Trafford. But with no major signings coming, it could cost the manager his job early in the season if results don’t turn out good.

2. Mark Hughes

Southapton manager Mark Hughes is next in line as one of the managers who could face the axe early this season.

The former Stoke City gaffer joined the South Coast club at the end of last season, but despite his impeccable mid-table record with clubs, things don’t look very good for him.

Southampton finished the 2017-18 season just above the relegation zone, but if the improvement of the squad is anything to go by, then Hughes faces an uphill task to transform the fortunes of the club and could be sacked.

3. Javi Garcia

Javi Garcia has brought huge optimism to Watford fans ever since taking up the managerial job of the club. The Hornets boast a decent squad but have often under performed, leading to a frequent change of managers.

However, the high expectations from fans and management of the club could end up being the undoing of he manager.

Whiles he is unlikely to lead Watford to a Champions League qualification or Europa League qualification, Garcia could still finish in the top half of the table. But a poor start, though, could lead to his sack.

4. Maurizio Sarri

While Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho faces a defining season, his counterpart at Chelsea is also in the same situation.

Maurizio Sarri started off his Chelsea tenure with a lackluster 2-0 loss to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the Community Shield.

But with the manager’s obsession with possessive football, it remains to be seen if he will be given enough time to implement his ideas. Knowing Chelsea very well, it’s either he starts winning or face the sack.

5. Marco Silva

Another manager who may not last the full season is Everton’s Marco Silva. The Portuguese has over seen some massive spending at the Goodison Park and will need to show something for that.

Everton have flattered to deceive in recent years despite their array of players. And, that has already led to the sacking of managers like Roberto Martinez and Ronald Koeman.

Marco Silva may be a more pragmatic manager, as compared to the aforementioned duo, but at this moment expectations are high and that could mean his early exit if he fails to deliver.
