4 managers which made it through April without smelling defeat will butt heads for the honor of being crowned the Premier League’s Manager of the Month for April 2022..
Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp, Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola, Brentford’s Thomas Frank and Burnley’s Mike Jackson are up for the award.
Both Klopp and Guardiola watched their side win four of their five games throughout April, with the 2 2 draw between their two teams on April 10 the sole blemish on their otherwise ideal run of results.
The month started with a 2-0 victory over Watford, immediately followed by that draw with Guardiola’s City, though the positive vibes were quickly restored because of a 4-0 defeat of Manchester United.They would then dispatch both Newcastle and Everton, keeping their hopes of bringing City to the top of the table.
Guardiola had no intention of letting Liverpool into the club, unfortunately for the Reds. His City team ran out comfortable winners against Burnley, Brighton, Leeds and Watford, keeping them in the chase for the Premier League title.
The dissolution of Sean Dyche as manager of Burnley was among the greatest managerial stories of the month. The long-serving figure was given the boot and replaced temporarily by Jackson, who became the very first manager of the Clarets to actually go unbeaten in their first four top flight games.
A 1 1 draw with West Ham was a great way to begin his reign before Burnley stepped up the game with successive victories over Southampton, Watford and wolves to give them plenty of breathing space in the relegation fight.
Frank has done an outstanding job at Brentford ensuring his side do not get caught in the drop-zone fight, with April’s results going a long way to making his case.
The Bees started the month by beating Chelsea 4-1 and followed that by seeing off West Ham and Watford, with a more-than-respectable 0 0 draw against Tottenham the only game where they lost points..
