The Barclays Premier League is home to some of the best managers in the world and we have the latest odds on who will be award the Manager Of The Month
The Manager Of The Month award is decided by a combination of fan votes and panel of experts. Voting from fans makes up 10% of the overall decision, with the experts having the rest of the say.
The first-ever manager of the month award was done in August 1993. Sir Alex Ferguson won the award and went on to win the most of any manager in the Premier League with 27! This is a hugely impressive feat, with second place being Arsene Wenger with 15.
In the Premier League currently, Klopp is leading the way with eight Manager Of The Month awards. Ancelotti was the recent recipient of the award. His Everton side have got off to a fantastic start in the Premier League. They are currently top of the league, having won all three games that month, scoring eight goals along the way. One of these wins was against Spurs, which Everton were the underdogs for.
November Manager Of The Month Odds
Jurgen Klopp = 4/1
The favourite for Novembers Manager Of The Month award is the Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp. He is no stranger to this award, after having won seven of them last season. For someone like Klopp to win the award, his side will need to win all three games in the month as his side is one of the best in the world. Liverpool takes on City, Leicester and Brighton in November. Winning all three of these will be tough. If they can win all three this would put Klopp in with a good chance of getting his eighth award, especially with a win over Pep Guardiola and his side.
Pep Guardiola = 9/2
Pep has won seven in his Premier League career, none of which came last season. Just like Klopp, Pep would be expected to get three wins out of three due to his side being full of superstars. They have to play Liverpool, Spurs and Burnley, which may be looked as a better achievement than Liverpool’s three games. This would see Pep beating Klopp and Jose, two of the best managers in the world. Man City are capable of beating all three but will need a striker back fit as both Aguero and Jesus have been out recently.
Frank Lampard = 13/2
Chelsea’s manager has just one Manager Of The Month award to his name. His side takes on Spurs, Newcastle and Sheffield United. Lampard will be hoping his new summer signings are fully settled in now as he’ll need them to win all of these three games. These will be tough games for Chelsea and they won’t be expecting to come away with nine points. However, with Pep and Klopp playing each other, the result of that will rule one of them out of the running you’d expect. A big win over Spurs could see Lampard’s odd drop.
Carlo Ancelotti = 12/1
The current holder of the award is at a very interesting 12/1. Ancelotti’s side is in fantastic form at the minute and look better than we’ve ever seen them before. They have four games in November which could make or break Ancelotti’s chances of another award. Everton takes on Newcastle, Man United, Leeds and Fulham. They will be the favourite for all of these, except for maybe the Man United game. If they can go another month unbeaten the Ancelotti could be a great bet a 12/1.
