Premier League sack race: includes Chelsea, West Ham and Man United managers – Brighton boss the 'most secure'
and live on Freeview channel 276
Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi, having impressed in his maiden season after taking over from Graham Potter just over a year ago, is finding life tough at the moment, with his side without a Premier League win since September as they juggle the demands of their first European campaign.
De Zerbi though remains the safest manager in the Premier League and quite rightly so. The Seagulls, despite losing Alexis Mac Allister, Moises Caicedo and Levi Colwill last summer, are seventh in the Premier League and are now starting to find their feet in the Europa League.
“We have to manage in this way. We play another very important game on Thursday in Amsterdam (against Ajax) and we want to win,” De Zerbi said. “It is very important that game, but we want to compete in the Premier League as well and we have to adapt and be stronger than last season. This season is different and I think we are fighting in a good way.”
A win at struggling Ajax this Thursday would place them in a strong position in Group B and they are well and truly in the battle for a top six place in the top flight. A fine effort so far from De Zerbi and Brighton.
But how does the Italian's position compare to the more under-pressure bosses in the Premier League. Here, courtesy of Oddschecker, are the latest odds of the next manager to leave their position.
