6) David Moyes – West Ham United
West Ham are playing brilliant football this season under Moyes. They are currently 5th in the Premier League table and will hope for European football next season. They are currently above the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal, and Tottenham and will hope to finish the season on a high. He has earned the right to be placed among the best Premier League managers.
5) Marcelo Bielsa – Leeds Utd
Bielsa has done a great job with Leeds united. He is the man who ended their long spell of being in second-tier English football. The Argentinian knows quite well how to thrive at the top level. He has unique but efficient tactics and good man-management ability. He is an attack-minded manager and his team is among the top-scoring teams in Premier League this season. United started the season on a high note giving a very hard time to the champions Liverpool in the first match. They also beat Manchester City 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium, having drawn 1-1 at the Elland Road earlier this season.
4) Brendon Rodgers – Leicester City
The Foxes finished 5th last season securing a Europa League spot and they now have eyes on Champions League football for the next season. In a league of such high magnitude of competition, Leicester have performed quite astonishingly in the last couple of years. We have to admire the Northern Ireland manager’s masterclass for the 5-2 bashing of Man City at their own backyard this season. They are also in the FA Cup final, where they will lock horns against Chelsea. They are at 3rd place right now in the PL table and we just have to wait and watch how this unpredictable Premier League season plays out for Rodgers.
3) Thomas Tuchel
The German coach took over from Lampard and has done incredibly well in the short period. Chelsea have now reached the finals of the FA Cup beating Man City in the semifinal. They are also in the semifinal of the UCL. Before Chelsea, Tuchel has served as head coach at Borussia Dortmund and PSG, among other clubs. It will be interesting to see if Chelsea can win a silverware under him in this season.
2) Jürgen Klopp
The winner of last season’s Premier League, the classy and the genius, one and only Jurgen Klopp is second in this list. He is not having a great season but Liverpool under him in recent seasons have been incredible. He was the talismanic manager who won Liverpool their 19th Premier League title after a wait of 30 long years. The connection he has with the Reds is very striking, it seems like the German was born to manage the Merseyside club and lead them to glory. He is definitely one of the best Premier League managers.
1) Pep Guardiola – Man City
The Spanish coach is considered one of the most tactically genius managers in the world. He is a manager of great intellect. His possession-based quick transition football is a treat for the eyes. The one-touch passes and defense tearing through balls of Man City players describe how well Guardiola has managed his team. He has very efficiently endorsed Johan Cruyff’s philosophy on the Sky Blues. He has managed great success with the Citizens, having won 2 Premier League titles and 9 other trophies in his tenure.
