Rodgers made his managerial debut in the Premier League with Swansea City in 2010. He guided the Welsh club to the Premier League in his first season after beating Reading in the Championship playoff final. After keeping Swansea up in 2011/12 with stylish football and shocking top teams such as Arsenal, Rodgers replaced Kenny Dalglish as manager of Liverpool.
With Liverpool, he came very close to winning the league in 2014, ultimately losing out to Manchester City. Rodgers claimed the LMA Manager of the Year award that season. He left the club after a poor run of form but returned to the league with Leicester City in 2019. He won the FA Cup with Leicester in 2021 and also won the following Community Shield.

The Spaniard made his first mark in English football in 2004/05 with Liverpool.

He became Chelsea’s manager in 2012 and won the Europa League with them. With Newcastle, he won the Championship and secured promotion to the Premier League in 2017, before leaving the club in 2019. He joined Everton as the head coach in the summer of 2021.
3. Jurgen Klopp [62.71%] [P – 228, W – 143]

Klopp guided Liverpool to the Premier League title for the first time ever in 2020. He also led the club to the UCL glory the season before. He transformed the club from European place hopefuls to genuine title contenders. Klopp won the award for the FIFA’s Best Men Coach in 2019 and 2020. He has done all that with a relatively modest budget.
2. Thomas Tuchel [62.96%] [P – 27, W – 17]
Teams Managed – Chelsea
Tuchel turned around Chelsea’s fortunes since taking over as their manager. His impact can be seen on the club. He guided the club to the UCL trophy in his very first season and also reached the FA cup final. Under him, Chelsea’s defence has been a fortress. He will look to build on it and win more trophies.
1. Pep Guardiola [73.23%] [P – 198, W – 145]
Teams Managed – Man City
Guardiola became the manager of Man City in 2016, replacing Manuel Pellegrini. So far, he has already won 10 trophies with the club including 3 PL titles and 4 League Cups. He has proved many doubters wrong by implementing his famous passing style of play in this league. Man City also became the first-ever team to reach 100 points in a Premier League season in the 2017-18 season. They also reached the final of the UCL in the 2020-21 season. It won’t be an exaggeration to say that City have the best coach in the world.
