Steve Cooper now 1/6 to be the next manager to be sacked in the Premier League

Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper has shortened into 1/6 with bookmakers to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked after his side were thumped 5-0 off Fulham on Wednesday.

Premier League Next Manager to be SackedOddsProbability
Steve Cooper1/6
Roy Hodgson4/120.0%
Erik ten Hag10/19.1%
Vincent Kompany12/17.7%
Rob Edwards18/1

The Guardian reported on Thursday that Cooper is expected to take charge of Nottingham Forest's game against Wolves on Saturday with the club's board looking for successors for him.

Forest owner Evangelos Marinakis reportedly left the game 20 minutes early on Wednesday evening with one Fulham fan finding his accreditation lanyard in a bush outside Craven Cottage.

Former Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui is reportedly in the running for the Forest job with the board potentially looking to replace one of their most popular ever manager's in Cooper.

Fans were shown after the 5-0 defeat last night still chanting and supporting Cooper despite the loss but there might be too much pressure on him now ahead of the weekend.

What the expert says...

In April 2023 Steve Cooper was given the dreaded vote of confidence by the Nottingham Forest owner Evangelos Marinakis. It remains to be seen after the 5-0 defeat by Fulham if Cooper gets the same support this time around.

Roy Hodgson shortens into 4/1 after Crystal Palace lose to Bournemouth

Roy Hodgson's odds to leave next have been slashed significantly after Crystal Palace lost 2-0 at home to Bournemouth on Wednesday evening.

Hodgson claimed that Palace fans had been "spoiled" in recent times after the defeat which will not have helped his popularity.

The manager and players were booed off after that defeat last night and now Hodgson has a 20% chance of being the next manager to be sacked.

Sheffield United heavy favourites to be relegated this season

Sheffield United are the clear favourites to be relegated from the Premier League at the end of the season after they sacked Paul Heckingbottom and brought in Chris Wilder earlier this week.

Wilder took charge of his first game back at Sheffield United on Wednesday evening in a 1-0 defeat to Liverpool and their odds make them heavy favourites to be relegated.

Bookmakers have put Sheffield United at 1/16 to go down to the Championship at the end of the season with Luton Town and Burnley second and third favourites.

These odds suggest that the three promoted teams from the Championship last season will go straight back down at the end of the campaign.
