Ranked! Every Premier League manager by their job security in 2019/20

Manuel Pellegrini West Ham

When we did this last year, there was no shortage of Premier League managers feeling the pressure before their seasons even started. Jose Mourinho and Rafa Benitez were making disgruntled noises at Manchester United and Newcastle, Claude Puel had been booed by Leicester fans and, hey, remember Mark Hughes at Southampton? What was that all about?

It’s a bit trickier in 2019. There are fewer candidates for instant defenestration, due to a combination of success stories, club heroes and recent appointments. However, we’ve also considered managers who may walk away from the job, not just those favourites to win/lose the sack race. Don’t be surprised, therefore, to see a few ambitious types nearer the end of our countdown – even if they’re not being fired any time soon.
