Under-Fire Premier League Managers – Will They Stay or Will They Go?

The Premier League managerial merry-go-round has been fairly quiet this season. Since the high-profile summer signings of Guardiola, Conte and Mourinho, only 6 clubs have fired their bosses. All were relegation-threatened teams and two were Swansea City. Even reigning champions Leicester City gave Claudio Ranieri until late February. Meanwhile, managers like Eddie Howe at Bournemouth and Sean Dyche at Burnley are building long-term projects. Are Premier League clubs finally looking at the bigger picture?

Premier League fixture Chelsea v Southampton

Squad Rotation? Tuesday sees a crucial Premier League fixture.  Leaders Chelsea take on Southampton at Stamford Bridge.  Tottenham have closed the gap on Chelsea to 4 points so a win in this Premier League fixture is paramount.    It was noticeable that Chelsea “dropped” or “rested” Costa and Hazard for the FA Cup semi final on Saturday and I think this was with an eye on this fixture.  Whilst Costa has struggled for goals recently others have come to the

When Roberto Di Matteo signed Moses from Wigan back in 2012, there seemed little hope of regular first-team football. And so it turned out at first.
