Becoming a Premier League manager is regarded as one of the biggest achievements of any coach.

However, keeping the job is equally a daunting task, as clubs and fans constantly demand positive results.

Given the intensity and stakes of every game, any spell of bad form can cost one his job in the Premier League.

To put this into perspective, four managers had already been sacked after just 11 games, after struggling in the early days of the campaign.

According to NBC Sport, Jesse Marsch recently became the seventh and latest manager to be shown the door.

Leeds United got rid of the American on February 6, with the tactician getting the sack just a day after the side had lost 1-0 to Nottingham Forest.

His sacking came at a time when Leeds are flirting with relegation, with the West Yorkshire-based outfit currently placed 17th in the standings with just 18 points.

Sports Brief now takes a look at the six other managers who have been sacked so far this season:

6. Scott Parker, Bournemouth

Scott Parker became the first manager to get sacked in the Premier League in the 2022/23 season. He was given his marching orders on August 30, shortly after Bournemouth had been hammered 9-0 by Liverpool at Anfield.

Parker had helped the Cherries secure promotion from the Championship and was hoping to keep his job for some time.

Gary O’Neil was subsequently appointed the interim coach but has been unable to steady the ship.

5. Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea

The sacking of Thomas Tuchel back in September was an absolute shocker in the world of football.

Having won Chelsea the Champions League, the Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup, the German was expected to keep the job at Stamford Bridge in the foreseeable future.

However, a Champions League group stage defeat at Dinamo Zagreb cost him his job, with Graham Potter taking his place.

4. Bruno Lage, Wolverhampton Wanderers

Bruno Lage was shown the door at Wolves just one month after Tuchel's sacking.

Julen Lopetegui, a veteran La Liga manager, went on to replace the Portuguese manager.

3. Steven Gerrard, Aston Villa

The Liverpool legend is among the high-profile managers to be sacked in the Premier League this season.

Given his CV at Rangers prior to his arrival at Villa Park, many had high hopes for the legendary midfielder to flourish in the EPL as a manager.

However, his uninspiring tactics and a poor run of form cost him his job back in October after just 11 months in charge.

2. Ralph Hasenhüttl, Southampton

Ralph Hasenhüttl and Southampton parted ways in November. The Austrian was given his marching orders after games and results failed to go his way.

The Saints went on to replace him with Nathan Jones a few days after. However, the new manager has also failed to steer Southampton to winning ways, with the club currently in the relegation zone.

1. Frank Lampard, Everton

Final on the list is Frank Lampard. The Chelsea legend was hoping to re-launch his managerial career at Everton after his appointment as manager in January 2022.

Lampard took the job exactly a year after he had been sacked as manager at the Blues. However, the former midfielder would only last at Goodison Park for only a year.

Sean Dyche has since succeeded him.

Ancelotti: Mourinho is the greatest

Sports Brief earlier reported on Carlo Ancelotti hailing Mourinh as greatest among managers, while claiming that so-called outdated tactics are still relevant.

The two top coaches are close friends and have both managed at Chelsea and Real Madrid. The Italian certainly believes the Special One is the best coach.

The 60-year-old's teams are reputable for defensive solidity, widely referred to as parking the bus, which many football fans feel is now outdated.
