It's axing season in the Premier League and after a raft of high-profile departures, both Marco Silva and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be glancing nervously over their shoulders.
Quique Sanchez Flores was the latest to be shown the door by his employers, after his second stint as Watford boss ended after just 85 days with just one league win to show for his troubles.
His departure follows those of Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham and Unai Emery at Arsenal, the only three top-flight casualties of the season to date.

That is almost certain to change, and there are two managers in the North West who will be feeling the heat more than others.
On Merseyside, it was almost a surprise that Everton's defeat by Leicester did not bring with it a P45 for Silva.
The Toffees have endured a miserable season and sit just one place and two points above the relegation zone.
Huge amounts of money were spent at Goodison Park in the summer in a bid to propel the club back into European contention, with Alex Iwobi, Moise Kean, Andre Gomes and Jean-Philippe Gbamin all bought for north of £20million.
