Last updated : 27 December 2018 By Footy Mad - Editor

Claude Puel (Leicester) - 9/4
Sean Dyche (Burnley) - 9/2
David Wagner (Huddersfield) - 7/1
Neil Warnock (Cardiff) - 10/1
Rafa Benitez (Newcastle) - 10/1
Claudio Ranieri (Fulham) -16/1
Roy Hodgson (Crystal Palace) - 16/1
Chris Hughton (Brighton) - 20/1

Claude Puel remains the favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job, despite Leicester City's Boxing Day triumph over Manchester City.

Newcastle's Rafa Benitez is 10/1, with some suggesting he will leave St James' Park in the summer if Mike Ashley remains owner.

The second favourite in the betting is Sean Dyche, whose Burnley side sit 18th at the halfway stage of the season and were on the wrong end of a 5-1 thrashing at home to Everton on Wednesday.

The Clarets started the season slowly and it was believed Europa League involvement negatively affected Dyche's side. Since their elimination they have failed to gather form and have won just three times in the league all season.

The Turf Moor outfit could have a big month to come, with West Ham, Huddersfield and Fulham all to face before mid-January. They then face Southampton and Brighton in early February and are currently odds-on for relegation in May.
