Sacking season is officially underway in the Premier League.

Earlier this morning, Crystal Palace parted ways with Neil Warnock after only four months in charge.

As Palace begins its search for a new manager, could more teams be following their footsteps?

According to the bookies, West Brom’s Alan Irvine is the favorite to be sacked. The Baggies have lost six of their last eight matches and currently sit 15th on the table.

Following their 3-1 defeat against Manchester City, Irvine said he can’t be confident about his future at the Hawthorns.

The chairman will make a decision as far as that is concerned. I can’t control it. Can I be confident about it? Not necessarily, because I don’t know what the thinking is.

All I can do is work as hard as I do and keep on trying to get the right kind of performances and results.”

While West Brom has had a tough run of games against Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and West Ham, they dropped a two goal lead to Queens Park Rangers that had fans calling for change.

Over at the King Power Stadium, Nigel Pearson is also on the chopping block as Leicester City have struggled to get results after coming up from the Championship. The Foxes sit dead last on the table, managing only two wins and ten points through 18 matches.

With Leicester struggling on the pitch, Pearson has also had his problems off the field, earning a suspension for an altercation with a fan and rubbing supporters the wrong way when he questioned their loyalty to the club.

During the Foxes’ loss to Tottenham on Boxing Day, Leicester supporters could be heard chanting “You’re nothing special, we lose every week,” mocking their club’s poor form throughout the season.

With matches tomorrow and again on New Year’s Day, it could be their last chance to save their jobs.
