The Dane's Brentford side dropped only one point in April. Frank secured the club’s first victory over west London rivals Chelsea since 1939, beating them 4-1, and followed that up with wins over West Ham United and Watford, and a draw with Spurs.

Pep Guardiola (MCl)

Guardiola ensured Manchester City stayed on top in the title race, drawing with challengers Liverpool and winning all of their other matches, against Burnley, Brighton, Watford and Leeds. His team scored 16 goals in the month.

Mike Jackson (BUR)
P4 W3 D1 L0​ GF6 GA2 GD+4
After taking temporary charge following the departure of Sean Dyche, Jackson stepped up seamlessly from his role as Under-23 coach to become the first Burnley manager to go unbeaten in his first four top-flight matches. He oversaw a dramatic turnaround victory against Watford, wins against Southampton and Wolves, and a draw at West Ham.

Jurgen Klopp (LIV)
P5 W4 D1 L0 GF11 GA2 GD+9
Klopp kept his Liverpool side hot on the heels of leaders Man City, winning four matches without conceding, with two of those victories coming against fierce rivals Manchester United and Everton. The Reds also twice came from behind to get a draw at the Eithad Stadium.
