The Chelsea boss is now a worryingly short 6/1 in most markets to get the boot, dropping from 11/1 over the weekend and a huge 25/1 back in August.

Chelsea's defensive woes and Tuchel's lack of flexibility in his system have been cited as the main reasons why he should be handed his marching orders, but with the new ownership consortium led by Todd Boehly still getting their feet under the table it's unlikely they will pull the trigger so quickly.

Many Chelsea fans believe Tuchel would be already out the door if Roman Abramovich still had the keys to the Chelsea castle, and already want Brighton boss Graham Potter as the next man up.

Tuchel has even jumped ahead of Steven Gerrard (7/1) who earned himself a stay of execution after a battling 1-1 draw with Manchester City over the weekend.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers is still odds-on favourite for the next Premier League manager to get the sack, you can get 1/5 with the bookies if you fancy throwing your money away.

Everton manager Frank Lampard is slowly clawing his way out of the danger zone joining Steve Cooper, Bruno Lage and Ralph Hasenhüttl around the 16/1 mark. The former Chelsea man was in single figures in August.

West Ham manager David Moyes and Leeds head coach Jesse Marsch were the other movers over the weekend, shortening slightly to 22/1 after both suffered defeats.
