Guardiola, Hodgson, Klopp & Rodgers nominated.




August 2019 Barclays Manager shortlist

Pep Guardiola (MCI)
W3 D1 L0 GF14 GA3

Seeking an eighth monthly award victory, the Barclays Manager of the Season for the past two campaigns oversaw an unbeaten start to Manchester City’s title defence. His champions won three matches and scored 14 goals while conceding only three.

Roy Hodgson (CRY)
W2 D1 L1 GF3 GA2

At 72 years the oldest manager in PL history continues to prove that age is no barrier as he led Crystal Palace to their first Premier League win over Manchester United with a 2-1 triumph at Old Trafford. His side also kept two clean sheets to earn the best defensive record in August and claim fourth place.

Jurgen Klopp (LIV)
W4 D0 L0 GF12 GA3

Liverpool's Klopp was the only manager to enjoy a perfect record in August, including a 3-1 victory over Arsenal and a 3-0 success at Burnley that set a club-record 13th Premier League win in succession.

Brendan Rodgers (LEI)
W2 D2 L0 GF6 GA3

Rodgers’ unbeaten Leicester City followed up a 1-1 comeback draw at Stamford Bridge with successive victories over Sheffield United and AFC Bournemouth to finish August in third place.

It will be Klopp and probably, rightly so, even if they were 4 games they were expected to win.

But I have to say, given how everything happened pre season with Wilf Zaha wanting to go, losing their first choice CB's to injury in Tomkins and Sakho, losing Wan Bissaka without really replacing him, and looking weak in attack with Benteke or Ayew as choices up front, Palace have really surprised me.

Everton at home isn't easy straight off the bat with their new signings, travelling to the Blades for their first home game back in the League was always going to be trouble, United away after they smashed Chelsea at Old Trafford was a tall order and Villa at home, have shown they have something about them.

Two clean sheets at home. Only conceded two goals full stop. Big win away at Old Trafford and sitting nicely in 4th.

Probably 3 points more than I'd have expected them to get.

So good on you Woy. You don't moan, you just get on with it and fair play.

Klopp will win the award but you are the people's champ.
