Premier League sack race: The managers who are at risk of being dismissed first in the 2022/23 season, including Frank Lampard and Jesse Marsch

    The 2022/23 Premier League season is less than two weeks away, which means the sack race is about to begin.

    Up and down the land, there are set to be several top-flight managers under intense pressure.

    While the likes of Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola won’t be looking over their shoulders any time soon, several Premier League bosses will be doing just that from day one.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Sean Dyche, Rafael Benitez and Nuno Espirito Santo were among those to lose their jobs last term.

    So, as we gear up for the new season, talkSPORT.com has looked at who the bookies think could be getting the sack first…

    Frank Lampard, Everton – 4/1

    Everton appear to be in trouble already and the season hasn’t even started.

    The Toffees have sold their best player, only made one first-team signing and have seen a takeover attempt fail.

    This has led to fan protests outside Goodison Park and Lampard even claiming after a 4-0 defeat to Minnesota United that the Toffees are set for a relegation battle.

    Therefore, you can see why Lampard could be the first manager to go because many problems need to be fixed, or the Toffees might struggle again.

    Ralph Hasenhuttl, Southampton – 5/1

    Now, this one might surprise a few because Southampton under Hasenhuttl always seem to be safe from relegation.

    However, with a new owner in place and several new signings at St Mary’s, could the Austrian be under pressure to deliver more?

    It’s certainly possible and if the Saints get off to a bad start, given their investment this summer, the former RB Leipzig boss could be on his way.

    But, despite his low odds, we think there are other managers on this list more at risk.

    Jesse Marsch, Leeds United – 6-1

    Leeds avoided relegation on the final day of the season despite looking doomed.

    However, Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips are gone, the Whites’ two standout players, so Marsch must find a way to gain points without them.

    The money from those sales has been spent on several players, who the American admires, which means if they don’t deliver, he will be under intense pressure.

    It is unclear what Leeds expect from this campaign, but given the summer upheaval, Marsch is going to need instant results or risk the sack.

    Marco Silva, Fulham – 7-1

    Silva’s Fulham were a joy to watch in the Championship last year, but can they replicate that this season?

    The former Watford and Everton boss has never shown he can consistently get good results in the top-flight, which makes him a likely candidate to be dismissed first.

    Fulham have been shrewd in the transfer market and have made a number of intriguing additions, but if they lose their first few, it’s very possible Silva will be removed.

    This feels like his last chance to prove to people he can manage in the Premier League, but will he take it?
