Frank Lampard is set to return for his second spell as Chelsea manager, the PA news agency understands.
The former Blues and England midfielder replaces the sacked Graham Potter until the end of the season, just over two years since he was dismissed from the role at Stamford Bridge.
Here, the PA news agency takes a look at how some other managers have fared second time around at the same top-flight club.
Jose Mourinho – Chelsea
The Blues won a third league title under the ‘Special One’ in his second season back (2014-15) and also the League Cup.
But he was sacked seven months later after the club’s spectacular decline, losing nine of their 16 league games at the start of 2015-16 to sit one point above the bottom three.
Kenny Dalglish – Liverpool
He returned to the helm after a 20-year absence to replace Hodgson in 2011, initially as caretaker.
Dalglish led Liverpool to League Cup success – their first major trophy in six years – and to the FA Cup final, but their eighth-placed league finish was their worst since 1994.
Liverpool had failed to qualify for the Champions League for the third successive season and Dalglish was sacked after a year in the job.
Kevin Keegan – Newcastle
They were famously pipped by Manchester United and finished runners-up in 1995-96.
‘King Kev’ resigned in early 1997 and, after spells in charge of Fulham, England and Manchester City, he returned to St James’ Park in January 2008.
He resigned the following September after a fall-out with owner Mike Ashley over the club’s management structure and player recruitment policy.
David Moyes – West Ham
The Hammers appointed Manuel Pellegrini and, after sacking the Chilean, reappointed Moyes halfway through the 2018-19 campaign.
Moyes’ return proved successful as the Hammers climbed the table to finish 10th.
Another relegation fight followed, but the Scot secured them European football for two years running with successive finishes of sixth and seventh before this season’s struggles.
Harry Redknapp – Portsmouth
After relegation with the Saints, he resigned halfway through the 2005-06 campaign and returned to Fratton Park.
He rescued Pompey from relegation trouble and then led them to a best Premier League finish of ninth in 2006-07.
Redknapp went even better in 2007-08 when Pompey finished eighth and qualified for European football by lifting the FA Cup.
Roy Hodgson – Crystal Palace
The former England boss was in charge of the Eagles between 2017 and 2021 and stepped up as interim boss after his replacement Patrick Vieira was sacked following a 12-match winless run.
Hodgson duly ended that streak in his first game back in charge, with a 2-1 win over Leicester boosting their survival hopes.
