Claudio Ranieri is no longer manager of Leicester City. And perhaps that will be it for the 2016/17 season as far as the Premier League is concerned.
William Hill offer a tasty 4/1 that no further Premier League managers are sacked, with Paddy Power going much shorter at 2/1 that this happens and it would be a surprise if anyone now gets sacked.
After all, Ranieri had been in trouble the moment that news leaked about the Leicester players wanting him gone despite last season’s title triumph. But everyone else looks fairly robust. Aitor Karanka is probably the man most under pressure right now although the Spaniard has a decent enough relationship with chairman Steve Gibson at Middlesbrough and did only get the club promoted last season.
David Moyes has been near the top of betting lists all season but he’s still in charge as we head into March and Sunderland might have landed a point at Goodison Park on Saturday if Jermain Defoe’s shot had crept under the crossbar instead of hitting the woodwork.
Walter Mazzarri seems to be doing well enough to last until the end of the current campaign at the very least, with Sam Allardyce next on the list and Saturday’s 1-0 win over Middlesbrough has helped Palace out of the drop zone and given the manager hope that his team can land surival.
