Amid the end of the season, there are still several managers that can be left without a job before the last round of the Premier League. Factors, such as incohesive display, conflicts in the dressing room or simple dissatisfaction with the team’s course will be decisive for many boards when considering the potential sacking.

Erik ten Hag

Erik ten Hag's performance as Manchester United's manager has been under scrutiny due to the team's poor results and given that United can be potentially left out of the European competitions next season, his position is far from solid in the view of new owners. Although midfielder Scott McTominay has publicly stated that the players are behind the manager, the team's performance has been inconsistent, and the manager's inability to adapt his tactics effectively has been criticised. Given the team's performance and the manager's inability to turn things around, it is possible that he could be sacked first if the team continues to struggle and will lose its 6th spot to Newcastle or Chelsea.

Chris Wilder

Chris Wilder's performance as a manager has been inconsistent, and he has struggled to maintain a high level of performance over a prolonged period. His teams often rely on individual brilliance rather than a cohesive team effort, which can lead to inconsistent results. Additionally, his tactics have been criticised for being too defensive-minded, which can limit the team's ability to score goals. With Sheffield United having already been relegated with the worst record of conceded goals during the Premier League season, the board will need to decide whether to give Wilder a chance for a bouncing back from a Championship, or attempt to bring in the fresh blood on the bench.

Mauricio Pochettino 

Mauricio Pochettino's whole tenure at Chelsea has been marked by uncertainty and speculation about his future. Despite having a young and talented squad, the team's performance has been inconsistent, and Pochettino has admitted to being unaware of how the club's owners, Todd Boehly and Co., judge his performances. The lack of communication from the club's management has left Pochettino in a precarious position, and the team's poor results have led to mounting pressure on the manager. While the move of Pochettino will be considered as illogical by many, the team's struggle to show any consistent game can be decisive.

Vincent Kompany

Vincent Company's performance as a manager has been limited, and he still has not had the opportunity to manage a top-tier team. This season showed that his experience is mostly in lower divisions, and his ability to adapt to the higher level of competition is uncertain. However, with results slowly adapting in recent weeks, the future of Belgian will depend on whether Burnley will save their place in the Premier League, currently being placed only 2 points away from the saving 17th place.

Nuno Espirito Santo

Despite starting his spell well as manager of Forest, they have since slipped back into the relegation zone danger although it’s through no fault of Nuno’s. The club were hit with a four-point deduction recently for breaking the Premier League’s rules around profit and sustainability which leaves them a point from safety. The board is currently considering all options, and may be the sacking of Portuguese and massive sell off of the players during the summer will be the only option for Forest.
