13) Roy Hodgson – Crystal Palace
Hodgson is a very experienced manager who has managed 16 different teams in eight countries including the Switzerland National team, which he guided to the last 16 of the 1994 World Cup. In 2017 the England-born was appointed as the manager of his boyhood club Crystal Palace. The Eagles finished the 2018–19 season with 49 points, their best-ever total in a single Premier League campaign. Crystal Palace are currently 13th in the Premier League table.
12) Mikel Arteta – Arsenal
The Gunners are currently 10th in the league table, which must be a thing of concern for the manager. The Spaniard has learned a great deal from Pep Guardiola when he was his assistant manager at Man City. He has won 2 trophies with the North London club including FA Cup. He made a great impact on the club after the departure of Unai Emery. The fans are very expectant as the manager shows promise.
11) Sean Dyche – Burnley
Kettering-born Dyche is the longest-serving manager in the Premier League, having been in charge of Burnley since October 2012. Burnley’s Premier League finishes since their most recent promotion have been 16th, 7th, 15th, and 10th under Sean Dyce. With such little resources, he has done a rather convincing job with the club, keeping them in the top flight. The manager also guided the Clarets to the Europa League qualification in 2018. The team was in danger of being relegated, being in the relegation zone in December but the boss man pulled them out of that position.
10) Dean Smith – Aston Villa
After finishing 17th last season Dean Smith’s team looked dead and buried but they have been a completely different and far a better side this season. The coach looks a lot sharper and has been managing the team very well since the restart that is why they are right now at 11th place in the Premier League table. Dean Smith outclassed Mikel Arteta in their meeting with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. The Villans also defeated Man United and smashed Liverpool 7-2 in this year’s league campaign.
9) Nuno Espírito Santo – Wolves
The Wolves manager is known for giving a tough time to the Premier League big teams. His men defeated Man City’s title defending team two times last season. The Portuguese had a great chance to win the Europa League last season before losing out to eventual champions Sevilla. The Wolves have been stationed at 7th place for the last two seasons, however, this season the team is at 12th spot. He is one of the best Premier League managers.
8) Carlo Ancelotti – Everton
There is no denying the brilliance of the great Italian. He has been a top-class manager for such a long time. He won the Premier League with Chelsea back in 2009-10 and has returned to the Premier League last season to manage Everton. The Toffees have been doing a quite good job under the guidance of Carlo and with the arrival of players like James Rodriguez, Allan, and Abdoulaye Doucoure their squad has been boosted significantly. They are currently in the 8th position in the league. Don Carlo has won a great number of trophies in his illustrious career and a trophy with Everton would be one of his best achievements.
7) Ole Gunnar Solskjær – Man Utd
Ole’s men finished 3rd last season just behind Liverpool and Man City, securing a Champions League spot. They are in the second spot this season and have reached the semifinals of the Europa League. Signings of players like Edinson Cavani and Donny van de Beek by the gaffer have provided great strength to the squad. Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, and Mason Greenwood are also giving stellar performances under the English boss and the Red Devils surely hope that they can finish with silverware this season.
