On Sunday, Neil Warnock became the second manager to be sacked in the Premier League this season, after Steve Bruce left Sunderland in late November, with Mark Hughes replacing him at Loftus Road.
Despite a strong start to the season, Warnock's QPR have slipped in form recently, having not won a game since beating Stoke in mid-November, picking up just two points in the process and are now hovering above the relegation places.
Warnock's sacking may seem unfair, as QPR are in the Premier League for the first time since 1996 because of his work last year. But management in football is harsh nowadays and results are more important than ever so Warnock's sacking isn't too surprising.
In the Premier League, managers often get sacked at about this time of year, as owners wish to "correct" their teams' mistakes in the previous few months by removing the manager—commonly viewed as the source of a team's failings, before it is too late.
Chris Hughton, Sam Allardyce, Roy Hodgson and Roberto Di Matteo were all sacked from their teams at about this time of year, with varying degrees of success for the teams who sacked them.
Here are five managers who could join Warnock and Bruce by next getting the axe.
