Solskjaer? Bruce? Farke? Who will be the next Premier League manager to lose his job?

All it took was seven rounds of fixtures before we saw our first Premier League managerial casualty of the season. Question is, who will follow Xisco Munoz through the exit door?

One of the biggest surprises of the week was the sacking of Watford manager, Xisco.

Last weekend, the Spaniard succumbed to his fourth league defeat of the season. However, with the newly promoted side still sitting in 15th place, few expected the club to pull the trigger.

Ultimately, that's exactly what happened, with Claudio Ranieri drafted in to fill the vacancy. But now that we have had our first Premier League sacking, can we expect the floodgates to open?

Here's a quick look at the latest odds...

Steve Bruce - 4/1 PaddyPower

There are a number of managers under pressure, but perhaps none more so than Steve Bruce.

His Newcastle side have picked up seven wins from 37 games - none of which have come this season as their winless run currently leaves them second-bottom of the Premier League table.

The Magpies have conceded the joint-most goals (16) and also faced 115 shots - the second highest figure in the division this term.

With that in mind, you might be wondering what's keeping Bruce at St James' Park. Is it his experience? Is it his passion for the club? Or is it some other unearthly source?

The most realistic answer is his contract. Sacking Bruce would come with a heavy price tag for owner Mike Ashley, who would need to pay out almost the entirety of his current deal. No wonder he's not budging… would you?

There is, however, a second argument. Once the international break comes to an end, the Magpies should have the likes of Callum Wilson, Jonjo Shelvey and Martin Dubravka back in the fold.

The lack of quality has been a major issue in the north-east. Perhaps the powers that be are giving Bruce the benefit of the doubt. After all, they didn't exactly give him a lot to play with during the summer transfer window.

Nevertheless, no matter how good Bruce's contract might be, it's clear that he's teetering on the edge of his managerial hotseat.

Forthcoming games with Tottenham, Crystal Palace and Chelsea could determine Bruce's future. No wonder he's the favourite for the sack at 4/1.

Daniel Farke - 11/2 PaddyPower

After Norwich City's 0-0 draw with Burnley, manager Daniel Farke labelled the result as an important step for the Canaries.

We're still trying to work out whether it was a step forward or backwards. Perhaps it was just a massive step to the side.

Most teams wouldn't describe a goalless draw with Burnley in any other way than frustrating. But then again, what should we expect from Norwich?

The Canaries don't seem to have learned much from their previous season in the top tier and the club appear to be heading for the exit door once more.

Despite this, there doesn't appear to be the same level of uproar from fans that we currently see at Newcastle or even Manchester United.

With one point to their name, Norwich have the worst points tally in the entire Football League. That's saying something, especially considering Derby County have just had 12 points taken off them for going into administration.

Farke has done a lot of good at Norwich and his era will go down as a successful one. However, despite his likeability, surely it's only a matter of time before the Canaries crack and decide to change things up.

At 11/2, Farke certainly offers decent value in this market.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - 6/1 BetVictor

The first two managers on this list represent clubs who are placed 19th and 20th in the Premier League standings. Our next contender though, is currently in the top four. So what happened?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has won as many league games as Manchester City under Pep Guardiola this season. United have also suffered the same amount of draws and defeats. Interestingly, both teams have also scored 14 goals.

The difference is, one of these men is receiving rave reviews while the other is on the precipice after losing the confidence of his own supporters.

Nevertheless, Solskjaer is no stranger to pressure. The atmosphere at Old Trafford changes with the wind and the Norwegian manager has felt both the wrath and the love of United's supporters. But, is their current frustration justified?

One thing that was in Solskjaer's favour last year was time. The manager was still moulding his side and while a lack of silverware was frustrating, he was given the benefit of the doubt.

However, with the 49-year-old now approaching his third year in the job, the clock is quickly approaching midnight.

After spending millions in the transfer market, the least United fans expect is a sign of progress. Unfortunately for Solskjaer, a run of two wins from six just doesn't cut it.

Perhaps he should take on board the advice of Sir Alex Ferguson who was caught saying: "You should always start with your best players."

Once the international break comes to an end, United will enter their toughest stretch of the season which will see them take on Liverpool, Tottenham and Man City inside a two-week period.

That run of games could very well make or break the Solskjaer era. With the bookmakers pricing the manager at 6/1 to be the next out of the door, they clearly have more faith in the Norwegian than the United faithful.

Nuno Espirito Santo - 6/1 BetVictor

Three weeks into the season, Nuno Espirito Santo was nowhere near the head of this market.

The new Spurs boss had just led his side to a third straight win and the club sat proudly at the top of the Premier League.

Then came the international break - and with it, Nuno's men were brought to their knees.

A 3-0 loss to Crystal Palace, a 3-0 loss to Chelsea and a 3-1 loss to Arsenal saw Tottenham tumble down the standings.

Confidence has ever so slightly picked up following a win in the Europa Conference League and a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa.

Nuno remains priced at 6/1 but considering this is his first season in charge, he may be afforded more time by Daniel Levy.

Recent reports suggest the Spurs manager will be released from his contract in the summer if he doesn't produce a top-six finish.

With that in mind, Santo makes for an unlikely choice in this market. Especially with competition from Bruce, Farke and Solskjaer.

Ralph Hasenhuttl - 10/1 BetVictor

Southampton are one of four clubs who are yet to pick up a win in the Premier League.

The Saints have drawn four of their opening seven games, which is the joint-most in the league with Crystal Palace.

Ralph Hasenhuttl lost the likes of Jannik Vestergaard and Danny Ings over the summer and the level of expectation at St Mary's was adjusted accordingly.

Avoiding relegation would be a success for the Austrian manager and their current position of 17th is perhaps to be expected.

And, with forthcoming games against Leeds, Burnley and Watford, Southampton should be able to break their winless streak and start climbing the table.

Mikel Arteta - 16/1 BetVictor

Last month, Mikel Arteta was odds-on in this market.

Three consecutive defeats, to Brentford, Chelsea and Man City, saw many Arsenal supporters calling for the manager's head.

Things have taken a turn for the better in recent weeks, however, with the Gunners now unbeaten in five competitive games.

The run of four victories from five has allowed Arteta to emerge from under the microscope, at least for the time being. As things stand, the Spaniard is priced at 16/1 to be the next Premier League manager out of the door.
