Tony Pulis surprised everyone when he became the first Premier League managerial casualty of the new season. Pulis didn't even wait for the first game to kick off before departing from his role at Selhurst Park. Since then no one else has been fired from a Premier League club but surely that situation won't last much longer?

Currently leading The Premiership sack race is Harry Redknapp. The QPR boss is increasingly under pressure following The Hoops' start to the 2014/15 season. Redknapp himself has looked at unease in recent interviews and his public spat with Adel Taarabt may be seen as a sign of desperation. Redknapp is a master of excuses and "woe is me f'sure" but a couple more defeats and he may well jump before he's pushed. Skybet have Harry at 8/11 to be the next man out.

Redknapp though is a master of survival and if you're looking for a punt with higher odds then maybe a look north towards Sunderland will be more tempting. Gus Poyet is another manager rattled by his side's poor performances including an 8-0 mauling away at Southampton. Poyet is 5/1 for the chop but a couple more defeats and/or poor displays may make the Uruguayan decide that he's lost the dressing room and that it's time to move on.

Surprisingly Steve Bruce is third favourite at 12/1 to be the next Premier League manager to leave. We'd be very surprised if Hull were to dismiss the man who took them to their first FA Cup Final. Bruce has a half decent squad that should be more than capable of Premier League survival. The only reason we could see him leaving The KC Stadium is if there was a vacancy at Newcastle, and that will only come about if Alan Pardew is shown the door.

Pardew has managed to steady a desperate situation at Newcastle United. Victory at Spurs will have bought him some time. He's 16/1 with Skybet. Also at 16s is Sean Dyche at Burnley. We just can't see Burnley firing the man who brought them in to the Premier League, although he will need to add some spirit to his team to show they're still playing for him.

The man most under pressure manager at the moment though is Mauricio Pochettino. Spurs currently are in the bottom half of the table and some fans are already unhappy with results and his lack of Plan B. Of course it's early days and sacking Pochettino would be the act of a ruthless boss desperate for immediate success and a return on the 100million invested from the Gareth Bale transfer fund. Unfortunately for Pochettino his boss is Daniel Levy! At 20/1 it might be worth a little punt on Poch doing an AVB out of White Hart Lane.
