Jurgen Klopp, Frank Lampard, Brendan Rodgers and Chris Wilder were all in contention for this prize.

Barclays Manager shortlist
Jurgen Klopp (LIV)
P38 W32 D3 L3 GF85 GA33 GD+52

The German delivered Liverpool's first-ever Premier League title in some style, with the Reds becoming the first team to cement top spot with seven matches to spare.

Klopp's five Barclays Manager of the Month awards in 2019/20 established another new high in the competition, while his side equalled other records by winning 18 matches in a row, securing 32 victories overall and amassing 55 points from a possible 57 at home.

Frank Lampard (CHE)
P38 W20 D6 L12 GF69 GA54 GD+15

Lampard secured a top-four finish in his first season as a Premier League head coach.

The 42-year-old promoted young talents such as Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham, also leading his side to the FA Cup final.

Brendan Rodgers (LEI)
P38 W18 D8 L12 GF67 GA41 GD+26

Rodgers secured Leicester City's second-highest finish in the Premier League as the Foxes came fifth and qualified for the UEFA Europa League.

He oversaw an eight-match winning streak, while his side's 9-0 triumph at Southampton was the biggest away win in the competition, and the joint-biggest victory overall.

Chris Wilder (SHU)
P38 W14 D12 L12 GF39 GA39 GD0

Wilder's promoted side were fighting for European qualification rather than safety, picking up four points against each of Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers en route to a ninth-placed finish.

The Blades let in just 39 goals on their return to the Premier League, the fewest by a promoted club in the competition's history.
