Despite receiving the backing of chairman Mike Ashley it is looking increasingly likely that Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew will become the first Premier League sacking of the 2014/15 season.

Having been told by Ashley that he still has the backing of his chairman, Pardew will take Saturday's game against Hull City.

Dreadful start

However the Magpies currently sit bottom of the Premier League having picked up just two points in four games, they also have the worst goal difference in the league having shipped nine goals.

With only four games gone, it could seem like a knee jerk reaction from Newcastle fans calling for their manager to be replaced, but the poor run of form stretches back to last season. 

Having finished 10th last season after a promising start, the Toon Army won just one of their final eight games as their season ended without much of a fight.

Should Pardew be sacked?

Pardew's record in the calender year of 2014 speaks volumes for how badly his team have performed, winning just five of a possible 23 games.

With it becoming increasingly likely that Pardew will face the axe - if his fortunes don't change - I take a look at potential candidates to take the hot seat at St James' Park.
