- Frank Lampard ranks among top five managers to be sacked before the end of this season
- Man United's Solskjaer, Steve Bruce and Roy Hodgson also made the shortlist
- The new Premier League campaign officially kicked off on Friday, August 9
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been named among top five managers who could be sacked this summer despite kicking off the 2019-20 season on a bright note.
The Norwegian tactician guided his Red Devils armies to a 4-0 victory over Chelsea at Old Trafford last weekend.
Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Daniel James all scored to fire the hosts to a convincing win in their opening Premier League meeting.
However, bookmakers according to SunSport believe the Man United legend will be the third coach to be sacked just one match into the season.
Newcastle boss Steve Bruce tops the list of managers who will be shown the exit doors before the season wraps up.
The 58-year-old took over from Rafa Benitez this summer but his first match in charge of the club ended in a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal at the Saint James' Park.
Bruce's men battle Norwich City in their next game after which they face another top EPL side Tottenham Hotsour at their new Stadium towards the end of this month.
And the results of his first few matches at the club might shape what his future will look like with the Magpies.
Second on the list of possible managers to be sacked is Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson after failing to beat 10-man Everton in their opening fixture at the Goodison Park.
Watford boss Javi Gracia has also be listed among the under fire managers who might be shown the exit doors before the end of the season.
The bookies believe Man United boss (7/1 odds) will be sacked way before the Hornets handler with 9/1 odds is sent packing by his employers.
