Ronald Koeman is the latest boss to lose his job following his axe from Everton. He joins Ronald de Boer (Crystal Palace) and Craig Shakespeare (Leicester) as the Premier League casualties so far this season.

Are more managerial changes on the way? Who is leading our Sack Race?

The front-runner

After seven rounds of matches, the relegation situation is taking shape in the Premier League.

Craig Burley takes to the touchscreen to dissect Alvaro Morata's vintage performance in Chelsea's 4-0 win at Stoke.
Craig Burley recaps Saturday's Premier League results, headlined by another commanding Manchester City win.

STOKE, England -- Three thoughts on Stoke 0-4 Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday:

1. Morata banishes memories of Costa

Alvaro Morata took his Chelsea tally to six Premier League goals with a hat trick in the 4-0 win at Stoke and the timing was key for the Spain forward.

With Diego Costa finally securing his move back to Atletico Madrid on Thursday, there are no more unwanted distractions at Chelsea regarding the combustible centre-forward.

But it also means Morata is the undisputed No. 9...

Once an Old Trafford legend, Hughes' Man United relationship is now frosty

The FC crew evaluate Jose Mourinho's comments and his incident with Mark Hughes after Manchester United's draw at Stoke.
Things got testy between Mark Hughes and Jose Mourinho on the touchline during and after the Man United-Stoke City clash.

Ask people working in football for their opinion of Stoke City manager -- and former Manchester United striker -- Mark Hughes, and you tend to get a positive response.

"Mark Hughes has flourished, although -- because he was such a quiet...
