Redknapp's position is looking increasingly precarious. Second bottom of the Premier League and a tricky match away to Stoke City this weekend will heap the pressure on the QPR manager.
Redknapp has made no secret of the fact that he isn’t too concerned about his future at Loftus Road. Nevertheless, he would obviously prefer to avoid leaving under a cloud and as such will be desperate for the side’s fortunes to improve, starting at the Britannia Stadium this coming weekend.
At 6/4 he remains the most heavily backed candidate to leave his post in the very near future, hardly surprising considering his team’s precarious position. Indeed, Rangers have managed a mere five wins this season so far and possess the worst goal difference in the top flight. The fans are getting restless and it won’t be too long before the club management will eventually lose patience.
Perhaps surprisingly, Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson is 16/1 to be the next managerial casualty in the top flight. The Foxes did indeed win last season’s Championship by nine points over their main rivals Burnley and there is a belief that perhaps the side can turn their fortunes around at this relatively late stage. Either way, they travel to Old Trafford this weekend and we feel that further pressure will be heaped upon Pearson at the final whistle.
Steve Bruce has been having a torrid time at the KC Stadium. Hull sit third bottom in the league table following some dreadful performances and Bruce is 7/2 to be the next manager to leave his post. His case may be strengthened when Newcastle United come to town this weekend however, the Magpies still awaiting their first win of the new year.
