They have won just one of their twelve matches in all competitions this season and they have secured just 10 league points this season. The club’s owner,  Tony Jiantong Xia is said to be considering Steve Bruce and David Wagner as possible replacements for Di Matteo but the former Hull City coach is regarded as the favorite to land the job.
