Xisco was appointed mid-way through the Championship season in December 2020 and guided the club to promotion in his debut campaign.
The 40-year-old boasts a 64 per cent win percentage as Hornets boss – winning 31 of his 20 fixtures.
One of those victories came on the opening weekend of the 2021-22 Premier League season against Aston Villa.
But that 3-2 win has been followed by successive defeats to Brighton and Tottenham without scoring.
And that's seen Xisco installed at 6/1 to be the first top-flight boss to be axed this term – behind only Arsenal's Mikel Arteta.

- John Terry – 5/1

John Terry is available at 5/1 for his first managerial appointment – a fraction ahead of free agent Eddie Howe.
Frank Lampard, who has been without a club since being dismissed by Chelsea, is offered at 8s.
Scott Parker and Chris Hughton are locked together at 12/1 with Paul Cook the outsider of the field at 16/1.
