Bielsa led Leeds United to 59 points, the most by a promoted side since Ipswich Town's 66 in 2000/01. The Whites' ninth-place finish came with a thrilling style built on relentless pressing and attacking football.

Pep Guardiola (MCI)
P38 W27 D5 L6 GD+51

David Moyes (WHU)
P38 W19 D8 L11 GD+15

Moyes's side were in the running for a top-four place for much of 2020/21 and finished strongly to claim sixth position, earning UEFA Europa League football with the club's second-best Premier League finish.

Brendan Rodgers (LEI)
P38 W20 D6 L12 GD+18

Leicester City secured fifth place for the second consecutive season under the Northern Irishman's management, narrowly missing out on the UEFA Champions League. They also won the club's first FA Cup.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (MUN)
P38 W21 D11 L6 GD+29

The Norwegian masterminded Manchester United's highest PL finish since 2017/18, ending with a five-point advantage over third place. United also went unbeaten away from home in 2020/21.
