Top Five Premier League Managers To Watch Out For
With the Premier League gathering its pace the title race is hotting up. At this very moment Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and West Ham are looking in indomitable spirit while the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal have been inconsistent since the start of the season.
Managing a club is a thankless job as you often see people criticising managers for not paying heed to their advice. But a manager isn’t bound to listen to all of his admirers rather he is getting paid for implementing his own vision to make the club a successful one.
Let’s have a look at the top five current Premier League managers.
The Manchester City manager has dominated the Premier League since his arrival. He took some time to establish his methods and since then there is no going back since then.He has literally toyed with opponents and danced on his way to three Premier League titles since taking charge at the Etihad Stadium.
He was pretty close to lifting his third Champions League title last season but a Kai Havertz goal jolted his dreams as Chelsea crowned the European champions.The Spanish manager has opted to play without a number nine this season and has been using Phil Foden and Ferran Torres in the false nine position this season. He has shifted Gabriel Jesus in a wider role and the Brazilian has blossomed as he has already had five assists and two goals to his name in the Premier League.
No one would have expected Klopp to succeed at Liverpool when he joined them from Borussia Dortmund in 2015. But he has exceeded expectations and has already won the Premier League and Champions League in his brief tenure. Klopp is known for his attacking style. He has made Gegenpressing his forte and teams have often fallen prey to his system
With Virgil van Dijk out for the most part of the season, Klopp didn’t panic and used his limited potential as he led the Reds to Champions League football last season.This season the likes of Mohamed Salah has already started the fireworks on the pitch and it remains to be seen how Liverpool finish the season.
Very few can match Thomas Tuchel’s tactical nous. He did brilliant things at Mainz, turned Paris saint Germain into potential champions and has turned Chelsea into a fighting team that fights till the very last moment.Following the departure of Frank Lampard the Blues hierarchy called in Tuchel to plug the gaps and the German was quick to react.
He stabilised the defence, made the player learn their strengths and brought discipline to the club which reshaped the whole fortune.This season too, the West London giants have conceded only three goals in the Premier League and have scored a staggering 26 goals and that too with Romelu Lukaku injured for the last few matches.
Brighton & Hove Albion has been the team to watch out for so far. The Seagulls have used their limitations as their strength and the results are quite visible as they are just four points adrift of the top four.
Their elite passing football is a delight to watch and they are also pretty when it comes to their defensive shape. They had a quiet summer transfer window and Potter has done wonders with his hands tied as he has very limited potential at his disposal.
He has turned Yves Bissouma into one of the best destroyers of the midfield while Leandro Trossard’s attacking capability has emerged as Brighton’s one of strongest points.
David Moyes was sacked by Manchester United after only a brief spell in charge and after a few years, the Scottish is proving every doubter wrong.Under his tutelage, West Ham United are flying high and are currently knocking on the door for a top two finish in the Premier League.The Hammers already have sealed their place in the knockout berth of the Europa League and in the process have conceded only twice.
