Fulham manager Mark Hughes admits his experience at Manchester City has taught him to never take his job for granted.
Both Newcastle and Blackburn have sacked their managers in the last fortnight, despite both clubs sitting comfortably in mid-table in the Premier League.
And Hughes, who was sacked from Eastlands last year with City in sixth, believes no manager is safe from the axe.
"I got sacked when I was sixth," Hughes said. "The logic of football sackings and dismissals seems to have gone out of the game of late, and it doesn't show any signs of changing in that respect.
"I think anybody in a position at a football club could come under pressure, irrespective of how well or how badly you're deemed to be performing."
Hughes' Fulham side travel to Anfield on Saturday, live on ESPN, where they meet former Cottagers boss Roy Hodgson, another manager under pressure after a string of disappointing results.
With just a superior goal difference keeping Fulham out of the bottom three, Hughes will be targeting all three points against Liverpool. And the former Everton striker is hoping the players who played under Hodgson at Craven Cottage will be able to give him an insight into what to expect from the Reds.
"Obviously a number of the players will understand what Roy's teams are about because he likes his teams well-drilled, organised and a lot of the work that I'm sure Liverpool are doing at this moment in time is very similar to what he did for the last two years here," Hughes said.
"A lot of the things they will be aware of in terms of what Roy will try and get from his team and how he will set them up so obviously I've got an insight into that because of the players that he has worked with previously."
Meanwhile, striker Bobby Zamora has taken another step on his long road to recovery by running for the first time since breaking his leg. Zamora has been out for more than three months and remains on target for a February return, according Hughes.
Hughes said: "Bobby went out there and was running on the pitch for the first time. He's done a lot of work in the gym and worked on the machine that increases the load and the weight bearing he can manage. He hit 100% load bearing last week and we have got him outside today.
"Obviously, it's very, very early days for him in terms of building up his confidence and getting his body back to where it was before. But he is bang on track, bang on schedule and hopefully we will be having him back sooner rather than later.''
Fulham have missed Zamora badly since his September injury and are outside the Premier League bottom three on goal difference alone. But Hughes warned against expecting the England forward to save their stuttering season, saying: "Obviously, there will be a period of adaptation. We can't hang our hats on Bobby coming back fit and well.''
Young full-back Matthew Briggs also underwent surgery last week after suffering persistent problems with his calves and looks set to return next month. Hughes said: "We want to get to the bottom of it and seem to understand what is going on.
"Obviously, he is a young boy and still growing. That's been a factor in it. He should, after 10 days, be in a position to ramp up his training and then hopefully we will get him back fit and well very soon.''
