Premier League management is increasingly turning into a dangerous profession.

Only eight of the 20 managers have been in their job for more than a year, with just Arsene Wenger and Eddie Howe holding their job for more than three years.

Wenger remains the last of a generation, and has managed for more than 7,000 days at Arsenal. The remaining 19 managers have only worked a combined 600-days more.

This season alone has seen five managerial changes. Jurgen Klopp, Sam Allardyce, Remi Garde and Guus Hiddink have all taken up positions with new clubs. Swansea are currently led by Alan Curtis, but only in a Caretaker capacity.

Once Wenger eventually leaves his position at Arsenal, we will enter an era, where managers become increasingly more expendable.
