Which Football Managers are Having the Most Success this Season?


The football season kicked off back in August and there have been lots of exciting games already, full of shocks and surprises. Now, with over a quarter of the season played, it’s time to assess which managers are doing the best job so far.

With so many great managers out there, the title race in England, Spain and Italy is too close to call. But if you want to find some of the top football betting sites then check out this guide at for all the latest information.

Thomas Tuchel - Chelsea

After defeating Manchester City in the Champions League final back in May, Chelsea have carried on where they left off last season. In only 50 games in charge, Tuchel’s team boast 31 clean sheets and the fewest goals conceded by any team in the whole of Europe.

The German’s fiftieth game in charge saw his team comprehensively beat Juventus 4-0 at Stamford Bridge in the Champions league. A result which saw them qualify for the knock out stages of the competition.

The blues only defeat of the season came at home to Manchester City, but they sit top of the table and through to the quarter-final of the League Cup. With top scorer Romelu Lukaku returning after a lengthy injury, Chelsea will be even stronger as they move into the crucial Christmas fixtures.

If Tuchel can maintain Chelsea’s form for his next 50 games in charge, then it’s hard to look beyond Stamford Bridge as the home of the next Premier league champions.

Pep Guardiola – Manchester City

Regarded as one of the best managers in the world, Guardiola is a serial winner with 31 trophies to his name. The Spaniard has won league titles with Barcelona and Bayern Munich, plus two champions league victories with his home town club.

Since moving to Manchester, City have been the Premier League’s dominant team under Guardiola, winning the title in three of his five seasons. Not only has he transformed the club’s style of play, but he has influenced the way football is played all over the world.

The Citizens have scored more goals and had more shots on target than any other team in the league since the start of the 2016-17 campaign. They have also faced the fewest shots and conceded the fewest goals in that time.

This season, a scintillating contest at Anfield saw City share the spoils with title rivals Liverpool, although they unexpectedly dropped points at home to Crystal Palace and Southampton. However, their dominant victory against Chelsea proved the blues are one of the favourites yet again.

City’s impressive victory over Paris St Germain means Pep’s team are through to the knockout stages of the Champions League. With his team sitting second in the premier league before the international break, Guardiola is well placed to add the trophy to its haul.

Erik Ten Hag

Ajax boss Ten Hag has become one of the most respected managers in world football over the last few years. He's best remembered for their 2019 Champions League run which saw them reach the semi-finals after beating European giants Juventus and Real Madrid along the way.

His team’s performances have seen the Dutchman heavily linked with some of the biggest jobs in football, including Tottenham, Barcelona and Manchester United most recently. Ten Hag models his team’s style of play on Pep Guardiola’s philosophy which explains his success so far.

This season Ajax have already qualified for the Champions league knock out stages after topping a group that included Sporting Lisbon, Borussia Dortmund and Besiktas. In the Eredivisie, the current Champions are neck and neck with PSV Eindhoven at the top of the table.

Drilling down into the stats shows just how impressive Ten Hags success is with Ajax. In their first 13 league games his team scored 42 goals and conceded only 2. That includes an impressive 5-0 thrashing of their nearest title rivals PSV Eindhoven at the Amsterdam Arena back in October

David Moyes – West Ham

The Scotsman’s success in turning around West Hams season last year was remarkable, especially with only one striker and a squad that was low on confidence. This season, Moyes has built on that achievement and is creating a formidable team that are threatening to break into the top four in England.

Despite lacking the riches of other premier league teams, Moyes has established West Ham as one of the top teams in the division. A thrilling 3-2 victory over Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool at the beginning of November, proved they have the ability to challenge for a Champions League spot.

Already through to the next stages of the Europa League after topping their group, they have also been as high as third in the Premier league. A quarter final place in the league cup is already assured after knocking out the holders Manchester City.

Long way to go…

With winter on its way and fixtures coming thick and fast, injuries, form, squad rotation and luck will play a part for every team. The true test of a manager however, is how he deals with all the obstacles thrown in his way.

In May we will finally discover which manager has had the most success this season.
