The 2022-23 season has been particularly Ruthless for Premier League managers.

Football can be a ruthless industry and this season in the Premier League has proven that managers aren't given an abundance of time if things aren't going well.

The Premier League is lucky enough to have some of the best managers in the world, but the turnover has seemed especially high this season.

We've gone back through the years and picked out the seven Premier League seasons with the most in-season departures by managers.

The 2022-23 season has been particularly ruthless for managers, with a Premier League-record 13 departures and only one of those - Graham Potter at Brighton - having left of his own accord.

To make things even more unusual, six of the 13 departures in this campaign have been since the start of February, with the last three coming in less than a week. Compare this to the first five Premier League seasons, where just five managers left their roles after the start of February in all of those campaigns combined.


Bournemouth got the ball rolling in late August by sacking Scott Parker following a 9-0 loss to Liverpool. 

Chelsea then sacked their Champions League-winning manager Thomas Tuchel eight days later and poached Potter from Brighton & Hove Albion.

There were three more departures before the World Cup break with Wolverhampton Wanderers dismissing Bruno Lage, Aston Villa sacking Steven Gerrard, and Southampton parting ways with Ralph Hasenhuttl.

In January Everton made Frank Lampard the third former England captain (after Parker and Gerrard) to lose his job as a Premier League manager in 2022-23 with the Merseyside club.

Then things went into overdrive with six managers being dismissed from February 6 to April 2. Leeds United sacked Jesse Marsch, Southampton got rid of their second boss of the season, Nathan Jones, and Crystal Palace removed Patrick Vieira from his post before Antonio Conte's departure from Tottenham Hotspur meant the Premier League record of 10 managerial changes in a season had been broken.

And then on Sunday, Brendan Rodgers and Potter left Leicester City and Chelsea respectively to make it a scarcely-believable 13 managerial departures.
