Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri is the new favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post after his team lost 2-0 to Southampton yesterday.

<p>It was the Cottagers’ fourth straight defeat and it left them marooned inn 19<sup>th</sup> place in the Premiership table, 10 points adrift of safety. Ranieri only joined the club in November after Slavisa Jokanovic was sacked, but Fulham may decide to bring in a third manager this season. There are just 10 games left to play and they desperately need to return to winning ways if they are to survive.</p><p>Ranieri has overtaken Chelsea’s Maurizio Sarri as the favourite to become the next victim in the Premier League sack race. The Blues pulled off a strong <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bbgjcii9_LQ" target="_blank" title="Chelsea vs Tottenham Match Preview">2-0 win over Tottenham</a> yesterday, giving Sarri a bit of breathing room. But Fulham fans are furious with the lack of passion and fight from their team and the blame is largely being heaped on the shoulders of Ranieri. <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c" target="_blank">Betway</a> has 8/13 (1.62) on him being the next Premier League manager to leave his post, followed by Sarri at 6/5 (2.20), Everton’s Marco Silva at 8/1 (9.0), no more managers to leave this season at 12/1 (13.0) and then Cardiff’s Neil Warnock at 20/1 (21.0).</p>
