Five managers gone in Premier League

Eleven games into the season, five managers gone, three sacked in seven days. What’s going on?

Dean Smith’s dismissal by Aston Villa means more managers have lost their job in England’s top flight already

this season than in the whole of 2020-21 – with this the highest number of departures at this stage of a campaign for 17 years.

The return of fans, financial pressure, and just sheer panic have been suggested as some of the reasons why.
3 October: Watford’s Xisco Munoz was the first to go, sacked with the Hornets 14th, seven games into the season.

He was replaced by Claudio Ranieri.

20 October: Newcastle boss Steve Bruce left his post by mutual consent, 13 days after the Saudi Arabia-backed £305m takeover

of the Magpies with the club winless in the league. He has been replaced by Eddie Howe.

1 November: Tottenham dismissed Nuno Espirito Santo after four months in the post, after a run of five defeats in seven league matches.

He was replaced by Antonio Conte.

6 November: Norwich’s Daniel Farke was sacked hours after their first Premier League win of the season.

The club are yet to appoint a successor.

7 November: Aston Villa’s Dean Smith was dismissed two days after the club’s fifth successive league defeat.

A replacement has not yet been announced.

In each of the past three seasons, only one team had parted company with their manager by this stage.

The most in-season departures for managers in a Premier League campaign is 10 – in both 2013-14 and 2017-18.

Nuno Espirito Santo, Daniel Farke and Dean Smith were all sacked in the first week of November.

This season in the English Premier League campaign was so tough and controversial about the decision of sacking

managers by club chairman.
