The latest round of Premier League action takes place this weekend, before a midweek round of fixtures on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
It has already been a busy season off the pitch, with six managers having already lost their jobs.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was the most recent manager to be dismissed, and it has been heavily reported that Ralf Rangnick will be the man to replace the Norwegian at Manchester United.
However, the firings in the Premier League look unlikely to stop just yet, as we haven’t even reached the half way stage of the campaign.
Some managers will face a huge week in their hopes to keep hold of their respective jobs, but which bosses look to be under the most pressure?
Leicester Far Off The Pace
Leicester City have been inches away from breaking into the top four in each of the last two seasons, but they look a million miles away from challenging this season.
The pressure on Brendan Rodgers is already increasing and we haven’t reached the half way stage of the campaign. Rodgers has done an excellent job at the Foxes, but a run of three without victory is unlikely to relieve the pressure on the boss.
His job security likely improved slightly in midweek, as the Foxes picked up a much-needed win in the Europa League against Legia Warsaw.
The victory ensures that the club are still on course to reach the next round of the competition, which could be an alternative route into the Champions League next season.
However, Rodgers will likely need to improve Leicester’s league position to ensure his role is safe, and fixtures against Watford and Southampton over the next seven days could be huge for the former Liverpool boss.

Toffees Faithful Losing Patience With Benitez
The pressure was already on Rafael Benitez before Everton even kicked a ball this season.
Toffees fans were against Benitez taking charge of the club having previously been idolized by Liverpool fans, where he won the Champions League during his tenure.
The early signs were good though under the Spaniard at the beginning of the season, as the Toffees were knocking on the door of the top four.
However, their form has quickly slid away, and they now look to be in a battle to finish in the top half of the standings.
All the blame can’t be placed on the door of the manager though, as Everton have been riddled with injury problems throughout the season, and should be more than capable of picking up points when they are back up to their full compliment.
Regardless, the pressure on Benitez has mounted in recent weeks, as the Toffees have lost four of their last five games.
It looks set to be a big seven days for Benitez, which includes a fixture against Brentford away from home this Sunday, before a huge Merseyside derby at Goodison Park on Wednesday against Benitez’s former club Liverpool.
