When do the contracts of all 20 Premier League managers expire?

Planet Sport looks at how long top-flight bosses have remaining on their contracts - and their chances of seeing them through.

The perils of being a Premier League manager means expiry dates on contracts are more for working out pay-offs than stipulating an end to their tenure.

Win a few games and you'll be able to renegotiate an extension anyway, lose a few and you're out on your ear and waiting on the next poor sap to get the heave-ho.

Nevertheless, with Jurgen Klopp and Ralph Hasenhuttl having spoken of running down their contracts in order to enjoy sabbaticals and Pep Guardiola already having enjoyed one, there is the possibility that a contract may finally be worth the paper it is written on (if that paper costs £385,000 a week, obviously).

So with that in mind, Planet Sport looks at the contract situations for the Premier League's managers and assesses which ones will see them through.

Arsenal - Mikel Arteta

Mikel Arteta Arsenal Nov21

Appointed: December 22, 2019

Contract expiry: June 30, 2023

So long the favourite to be the first manager to go this season, there is now talk of Arteta being offered a three-year contract extension in the summer, fuelled by a run to the Champions League spots and interest from PSG.

Verdict: Will sign a deal through to 2026 and then get sacked eight games into the 2022/23 campaign after the Gunners have lost their opening two Champions League group games.

Aston Villa - Steven Gerrard

Steve Gerrard Aston Villa Mar22

Appointed: November 11, 2021

Contract expiry: June 30, 2025

Has enjoyed mixed fortunes since leaving Rangers to take over at Villa Park, winning eight and losing seven.

Verdict: Let's face it, there's little chance of Gerrard seeing out his contract. Perform well and Liverpool will be in for him to replace Jurgen Klopp, fail to match expectations and he'll be on his way long before 2025.

Brentford - Thomas Frank

Appointed: October 16, 2018

Contract expiry: June 30, 2025

Brentford's decision to extend his contract in January looked like it might backfire as the Bees slid down the Premier League table. However, the risky signing of Christian Eriksen looks to have re-energised the newly promoted side.

Verdict: Safe for now, Frank will have to guard against the second-season syndrome that did for Marcelo Bielsa this time around. In fact, since 2010, only two managers have survived three seasons after leading their side into the top flight, Sean Dyche at Burnley and Steve Bruce at Hull.

Brighton - Graham Potter

Graham Potter Brighton Mar22

Appointed: May 20, 2019

Contract expiry: June 30, 2025

Potter was handed a four-year deal when appointed in 2019 and this was extended by two years in November last year following his side's impressive start to the campaign. They have subsequently won just three of their next 18 games and are currently in the midst of a six-game losing streak.

Verdict: Rather than getting Potter to sign a new contract, the Seagulls would have been better off sourcing a goalscoring striker. Still at least Potter can point to Brighton's impressive expected goals figures when he's applying for new roles next season.

Burnley - Sean Dyche

Sean Dyche Burnley Nov21

Appointed: October 30, 2012

Contract expiry: June 30, 2025

Almost part of the furniture at Turf Moor, Dyche was awarded a contract extension through to 2025 last September. Currently fighting relegation, Burnley have failed to score in 13 of their 27 top-fight fixtures this term.

Verdict: Has brought Burnley up from the Championship before but you get the impression that were the Clarets to go down this season, both parties would deem the time right for a clean break.

Chelsea - Thomas Tuchel

Thomas Tuchel Chelsea Jul21

Appointed: January 26, 2021

Contract expiry: June 30, 2024

All bets are off with Tuchel who up until recently looked set to be at Stamford Bridge for the long haul. Signed a contract extension shortly after securing the Blues the Champions League but the uncertainty surrounding the club and owner Roman Abramovich mean Tuchel's future is up in the air.

Verdict: From Jose Mourinho parking the bus, to Tuchel driving it, things have definitely changed at Chelsea. So many imponderables surround the club, especially with a long drawn out takeover in the offing and no one would begrudge Tuchel if he walked away. Manchester United are certainly sniffing around.

Crystal Palace - Patrick Vieira

Appointed: June 4, 2021

Contract expiry: June 30, 2024

Quietly going about his business at Selhurst Park, Vieira has guided the Eagles to 11th after being handed a three-year contract in the summer.

Verdict: Building on the stability provided by Roy Hodgson's reign, Vieira will be given time to make a name for himself at Palace. Will inevitably be linked with the Arsenal role should he do well but there's no rush.

Everton - Frank Lampard

Appointed: Jan 31, 2022

Contract expiry: June 30, 2024

It always looked a risky choice given Everton's precarious league position and Lampard's lack of experience at the wrong end of the table. Three points from a possible 18 only serve to underline that.

Verdict: Will be lucky to make it until the end of the month, let alone 2024. There is still time for someone to turn Everton's season around but little to suggest Lampard is the man to do it.

Leeds - Jesse Marsch

Jesse Marsch Leeds Mar22

Appointed: February 28, 2022

Contract expiry: June 30, 2025

Brought in to provide the stability that Marcelo Bielsa's constant 'will he, won't he leave' speculation could not. He got off the mark at the third time of asking against Norwich City. It gave Leeds some much-needed breathing space between them and the bottom three.

Verdict: Just needs to stop Leeds leaking goals. The imminent return of Kalvin Phillips should go a long way to solving that problem. Expectations will be high once survival is assured but he has a good chance of establishing Leeds in the top flight, and himself.

Leicester City - Brendan Rodgers

Appointed: February 27, 2019

Contract expiry: June 30, 2025

Not as good as he thinks he is, better than Leicester's league position suggests he is. Rodgers appears to be on the precipice between losing his job and bagging himself a better one.

Verdict: May have to accept that Leicester is as good as it will get, though you fancy he still thinks he deserves better. No chance of seeing out his contract.

Liverpool - Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp Liverpool Mar22

Appointed: October 8, 2015

Contract expiry: June 30, 2024

The German's contract expires in summer 2024 and after nine years at Anfield he is expected to walk away, the transformation complete (of both Liverpool and him).

Verdict: Klopp has spoken of taking a year off when his time at Liverpool is through. We'll give him six months before he's back in the game in charge of Germany.

Manchester City - Pep Guardiola

Appointed: July 1, 2016

Contract expiry: June 30, 2023

Has already enjoyed one career break following his term at Barcelona and is strong-willed enough to walk away even with City at the top of the tree. However, the players remain convinced Pep will stay at the club beyond 2023.

Verdict: Much will depend on the Champions League. He is desperate to win it with City and if he does, he'll surely want to defend it. One thing is for certain, though, he won't be leaving before 2023, even should City be pipped for the Premier League title.

Manchester United - Ralf Rangnick

Ralf Rangnick Man Utd Mar22

Appointed: December 5, 2021 (on a interim basis)

Contract expiry: Not known

In the novel position of being able to appoint his successor, Rangnick seems determined to make the United job look much harder than it is. Still, at least whoever takes over won't have the distraction of the Champions League next season.

Verdict: Rangnick is due to take on a paid consultancy role at the club in the summer, set to last for two years. And let's face it, you'd have to be pretty terrible to lose a consultancy role considering no one knows quite what it is.

Newcastle United - Eddie Howe

Appointed: November 8, 2021

Contract expiry: June 30, 2024

An underwhelming start has given way to top-six form after Newcastle made good use of their first transfer window as the 'world's richest club'. So bad are the bottom four that they may even have enough points already to survive.

Verdict: The Saudi riches bring with it their own pressures and Howe's low profile make him vulnerable. He's not going to make it through to 2024.

Norwich City - Dean Smith

Dean Smith Norwich City Feb22

Appointed: November 15, 2021

Contract expiry: January 30, 2024

Threatened something of a revival when swapping Villa Park for Carrow Road but their failure to beat Leeds at the weekend means the writing is on the wall. Quite frankly, 17 points from 29 games should have seen them relegated already.

Verdict: Daniel Farke survived a relegation with Norwich and the signs are that Smith will too. The majority of Canaries fans would accept a failed play-off push next season and a chance to build a strong platform for the future. The worst thing Smith could do would be to get them back up at the first attempt again. Which of course, is what will happen.

Southampton - Ralph Hasenhuttl

Appointed: December 6, 2018

Contract expiry: June 30, 2024

Into his fourth year as Saints boss and with the threat of the sack almost constant - at least if you believe the bookies - it is no wonder Hasenhuttl is considering retirement once his contract is up, he must be shattered by it all.

Verdict: Hasenhuttl will only be 56 when his contract expires and has spoken of not wanting to be on the bench at 74 like Roy Hodgson. However, if Southampton maintain their current league form - three successive defeats to Villa, Newcastle and Watford - he won't even make 55.

Tottenham - Antonio Conte

Appointed: November 2, 2021

Contract expiry: June 30, 2023

Often gives the impression he'd rather be anywhere else than Tottenham and obviously didn't do due diligence before accepting the role. There has been an upturn in form under the volatile Italian but the bare facts are that Tottenham are still only seventh.

Verdict: Could walk, could be pushed, could land the Manchester United job. Either way, he's not seeing out that contract, short as it is.

Watford - Roy Hodgson

Roy Hodgson Crystal Palace Feb22

Appointed: January 25, 2022

Contract expiry: June 30, 2022

For most clubs a six-month deal would be a short-term option but for Watford, appointing Hodgson until the summer was long-term planning. The veteran manager is making a decent fist of it as Watford battle the drop but he won't be there past the summer, even if they survive.

Verdict: Will pull off a great escape and then announce his retirement again, only to become the Hornets' fifth manager of 2022/23…in November.

West Ham - David Moyes

Appointed: December 29, 2019

Contract expiry: June 30, 2024

Signed a three-year extension last summer after guiding the Irons to an unexpected sixth-placed finish. Again has his side punching above their weight but will be hoping for more backing in the summer transfer window - the Hammers failed to sign anyone in January.

Verdict: West Ham are a couple of players away from being a very, very good Premier League side and a Declan Rice and Jarrod Bowen departure away from being a bang average one. However, the club and Moyes are currently an excellent fit, with neither able to do any better. That's unlikely to change before 2024.

Wolves - Bruno Lage

Bruno Lage Wolves Mar22

Appointed: July 1, 2021

Contract expiry: June 30, 2024

Lage is cleverly going under the radar by ensuring his side rarely score or concede goals - 12 of their 29 games have finished 1-0 and three 0-0. It guarantees Wolves are rarely one of the leading games on Match of the Day and every win (or defeat) is instantly forgotten. Are Wolves doing well? I'm not sure. Are they still in the Premier League?

Verdict: Will probably be at Molineux for another 20 years before anyone really notices him.
