Stoke City have slumped to one place and one point above the Premier League relegation zone.

They have won just once in their last eight league matches, so it is no wonder that Mark Hughes is the favourite with the bookmakers to be the next managerial victim in the top flight.

Five managers have already bitten the dust this season - Frank de Boer, Craig Shakespeare, Ronald Koeman, Tony Pulis and Slaven Bilic

And Hughes is now 1/3 on with to be the next manager to lose his job.

Former Stoke boss Pulis is the favourite to return to the Bet365 for second stint at 11/10. But among those in the running, according to Paddy Power, is Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic, who is tipped at 9/1 to replace Hughes, should he be sacked.

Jokanovic himself could be seen to be under pressure, with the Whites not performing to the level that they found when reaching the Championship play-offs last season.

Also in the race, according to the bookies, are former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini (5/1), Sean Dyche (6/1), Brendan Rodgers (6/1) and Thomas Tuchel (9/1).
