Barclays manager shortlist
Nuno Espirito Santo (WOL)

Espirito Santo has guided Wolves to a seventh-placed finish and potential European qualification in their first season back in the Premier League.

Their 57 points are the most by a promoted team for 18 years.

Pep Guardiola (MCI)

Guardiola could become only the third manager to retain the Premier League title after Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho.

The Manchester City manager, whose side top the table with 95 points, was also the 2017/18 Barclays Manager of the Season.

Jurgen Klopp (LIV)

With one match remaining Klopp’s Liverpool have reached the fourth-most points of any team in a single PL season.

They have amassed 94 points and lost only once all season, going unbeaten at home.

Mauricio Pochettino (TOT)

Pochettino has all but secured a top-four finish for a Tottenham Hotspur team who did not make a signing in the summer.

He did so while competing away from Spurs’ home stadium until it was completed in April.
