Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is one of the four Premier League managers most likely to lose their job next, according to bookmakers.

The Reds boss saw his side lose 1-0 to Fulham on Sunday – the club’s sixth consecutive league defeat at Anfield.

Klopp cut a frustrated figure on the sideline

It was another devastating blow for the club, who are failing dismally in their attempt to defend the title they won at a canter last season.

Bookmakers Ladbrokes now have Klopp at 7/1 to face the sack with Liverpool sitting 21 points behind leaders Manchester City in the Premier League table.

Current 6/4 favourite to get the chop next is Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce, which is understandable given a difficult week, where internal rows became public, ended with a 1-1 draw against strugglers West Brom.

Crystal Palace gaffer Roy Hodson, who is edging towards the end of a deal which runs out in the summer, is joint-second favourite, along with embattled Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder.

Next permanent Premier League manager to leave odds

  • Steve Bruce – 6/4
  • Roy Hodgson – 5/1
  • Chris Wilder – 5/1
  • Jurgen Klopp – 7/1
  • Sam Allardyce – 8/1
  • Ralph Hasenhuttl – 9/1
  • Jose Mourinho – 10/1
  • Graham Potter – 12/1
  • Sean Dyche – 16/1
  • Nuno Espirito Santo – 16/1
  • Scott Parker – 16/1
  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – 25/1
  • Mikel Arteta – 40/1
  • Marcelo Bielsa – 66/1
  • David Moyes – 66/1
  • Brendan Rodgers – 66/1
  • Dean Smith – 66/1
  • Thomas Tuchel – 66/1
  • Carlo Ancelotti – 100/1
  • Pep Guardiola – 100/1

West Brom manager Sam Allardyce is fifth on the list – less likely than Klopp to lose his job next – as he stares a first-ever relegation from the Premier League in the face.

While Southampton’s Ralph Hasenhuttl, Tottenham’s Jose Mourinho, and Brighton boss Graham Potter are also in a bit of trouble, according to the bookies.

Two men who are safe as houses right now, though, are Carlo Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola, in charge of Everton and Man City respectively, as they continue fine seasons with their sides.

West Ham manager David Moyes is another of those seemingly set to remain for the foreseeable future, rated at 66/1 to be the next man to leave, along with Leeds’ Marcelo Bielsa, with both becoming serious fan favourites for the jobs they are doing.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers also appears safe but anything can happen in football and a huge dip in form before the end of the campaign could see any of the 20 gaffers get sacked.
