Watford have sacked manager Quique Sanchez Flores after Saturday's 2-1 loss to Southampton, saying "ultimately results have dictated our decision".

Chris Hughton is a possible successor and the Hornets said a replacement will be appointed "imminently".

Sanchez Flores, who was in charge for the 2015-16 season, was reappointed on 7 September, replacing Javi Gracia.

But he won just one of his 10 league games in charge with Watford bottom of the Premier League.

"Quique is a man of great integrity and it was clear how much he wanted to have a positive impact, but ultimately results have dictated our decision," said chairman Scott Duxbury.

"The appointment of a new head coach is imminent, and with nearly two-thirds of the season remaining, we will provide all the support necessary to make the coming months successful."

Watford have eight points after 14 games and are six points from safety - their worst return at this stage of a Premier League campaign.

During Sanchez Flores' latest spell in charge, they have only beaten Norwich in the league, while losing to Wolves, Chelsea, Burnley and Manchester City, where they were hammered 8-0. They were also knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Everton in the fourth round.

Since Gianfranco Zola's exit in December 2013, Watford have had nine managers, including Sanchez Flores twice.

Fellow Spaniard Gracia had been in charge for 21 months - making him the first Hornets boss to last more than one full season since Zola.

Sanchez Flores becomes the the third Premier League boss to be sacked in the past two weeks, following Unai Emery at Arsenal on Friday and Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham on 19 November.

Watford are in their fifth season back in the Premier League since promotion in May 2015.

Gracia had led the club to the FA Cup final last season where they lost 6-0 to Manchester City, as well as 11th place in the Premier League.

They also reached the FA Cup semi-final in 2016 during Sanchez Flores' first spell as manager.

I think if you do feel the need to sack a manager you need to do it in time for the new manager to have the January transfer window to work with.

Sadly OGS has probably only got another week before hes moved on Id say. Personally I think they should be forced to keep him to contract end which would see them in league 2.

As much as I'd love all of this to happen, I don't think any of it will be soon. He's got players to come back in, Europa League to chase for a CL spot, January to tweak his squad. I can't see it being a big success myself, but I honestly don't think he'll be out this side of Easter virtually whatever happens.

Pochettino could end up at Manure, Arsenal, Everton or a club abroad. He won't be short of offers.

Think Poch will make his way back to Europe (according to reports yesterday) but obviously Premier League money talks so wouldnt be surprised to see him move across London.

Ha! Step forward David Moyes.

David Moyes: 2/5
Marcelo Gallardo: 7/1
Eddie Howe: 12/1
Leonardo Jardim: 14/1
Rafael Benitez: 16/1

What a mess!

Thought Moyes did OK at West Ham, seemed a harsh sacking.

Harsh?

68 points from a possible 159
6 away wins from 27 league games
Never came back from behind to win

Didnt Moyes spend forever at Everton before ManU others and West Ham or was that a parallel universe? Why do they want him back?

Where are those stats from?? He was only in charge of 31 league games (93 points).
They won 9 drew 10 lost 12. He had six months to keep a team with another managers players in the league, they finished 13th.

It was only ever supposed to be a short term appointment at West Ham but seeing that he did okay I was a bit surprised they didn't give him the permanent job. I suppose appointing a premier league winning manager in Pellegrini was a coup for The Brady Bunch. A Hammers fan on Talksport a week or so back was calling for Moyes to return in place of Pellegrini. Moyes obviously had a good relationship with Kenwright at Everton but it is Moshiri who owns 77% and now calls the shots.
