first_img 10 Hornets boss Javi Gracia has outlasted many bosses at Vicarage Road LATEST gameday cracker Sean Dyche somehow grinded the results out for Burnley again this season 20. Huddersfield – David Wagner/Jan SiewertHuddersfield had a miserable campaign and were relegated to the Championship with more than a month of the season remaining.Both Wagner and Siewart could not guide the Terriers to a good run of results to give them any sort of chance of avoiding the drop.19. Fulham – Slavisa Jokanovic/Claudio Ranieri/Scott Parker Gracia has worked wonders with Watford this season, guiding them to a deserved top half finish and to the FA Cup final.He also signed Gerard Deulofeu permanently from Barcelona which has proved to be a masterstroke and added Ben Foster between the sticks who has been a superb addition for the Hornets.It will be mightily impressive if he can guide the Hornets to a stronger position next season.4. Wolves – Nuno Espirito SantoNuno is deservedly a hot contender for manager of the year this season for his work with Wolves and deservedly so.The Wanderers played a brilliant brand of football and weren’t prepared to bow down to the big boys.Europe has been secured for next season, and, if he recruits well again this summer, they could even threaten to displace one of the top six next term.3. Tottenham Hotspur – Mauricio Pochettino Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won 10 Getty Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury deals It has been an up and down season for West Ham and Pellegrini but they have a good platform to build on for next season.The Hammers were very inconsistent throughout the campaign and perhaps could have done a bit better with the money spent, but they were also plagued by injuries to key players so a mid table finish in the rankings is about right.10. Everton – Marco SilvaJust like West Ham, Silva’s Everton were quite inconsistent throughout the season.However, they finished the campaign in style with a good run of form and all in and all it can be regarded as a solid first season at Goodison for the Spaniard.He will need to build on this 8th-place finish and hope to qualify for the Europa League next term.9. Crystal Palace – Roy HodgsonHodgson led Crystal Palace to a 12th-place finish in the Premier League and it’s nothing short of what they deserve.The Eagles have been better away than they have at home, which is strange as Selhurst Park has been a fortress for the south coast club in previous seasons.The addition of Michy Batshuayi was a good piece of business and Hodgson will need to find a striker to replace him immediately if Chelsea take him back.8.Newcastle – Rafael Benitez Another season well done for Pep Guardiola huge blow Man United transfer news live: Haaland ‘wants a change’, two players off in January REVEALED 10 It’s been a miserable campaign for Man United and both Mourinho and Solskjaer will be glad to see the end of it.After Mourinho was sacked at the midway point following a terrible run of results, Solsjkaer was brought in and there was a sharp upturn in form under the Norwegian.However, United then went on another woeful run and their season has arguably been their worst since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club.With the money spent and resources available, the Red Devils should have done so much better.16. Cardiff – Neil WarnockThe Cardiff players fought bravely for Warnock throughout the campaign and particularly at the tail end of the season.However, ultimately the Bluebirds didn’t have the quality in their squad to stay in the division.Everyone wrote them off at the beginning of the season and if their was’t several refereeing decisions against them they might have survived.15. Burnley – Sean Dyche Pochettino has once again delivered the goods for Spurs even though they have been inactive for the last two transfer windows.The last player the Argentine signed was Lucas Moura last season and he has still managed to get his team into the top four and to a Champions League final – a truly remarkable feat.2. Liverpool – Jurgen KloppNo Premier League runners-up have ever finished a season with a higher total than 97 points and that is testament to the work Klopp has done with Liverpool.The German has also guided them to a Champions League final for the second season running and he has no doubt surpassed expectation this season.It’s just a shame for Reds fans that City have just been that tiny bit better over the course of the campaign.1. Manchester City – Pep Guardiola REAL DEAL The 2018/19 Premier League season has drawn to a close and what a season it was.Despite recording a record 97 points, Liverpool could not usurp Pep Guardiola’s men from the top of the table and Manchester City remarkably ended their campaign as the first English side ever to secure a domestic treble. Benitez has overachieved again for Newcastle Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT Getty Images – Getty Southampton were having a turbulent season under Hughes and looked in serious danger of relegation.However, Hasenhuttl was brought in and immediately changed the Saints’ fortunes.The new St Mary’s chief looks to be a great coup for the club and he will be looking to kick on next season to produce a top half finish.13. Bournemouth – Eddie HoweBournemouth have had another good season in the top flight, although they were rather consistent on the road.Howe has added some great recruitments to the side such as Jefferson Lerma, David Brooks and Nathaniel Clyne and they have a great squad to build on in the summer.12. Leicester City – Claude Puel/Brendan RodgersPuel looked like he had lost the dressing room at the King Power and it showed on the pitch but their season picked up under Brendan Rodgers.Next season with his own transfer targets secured and a full pre-season under belt, Rodgers could get the Foxes into Europe.11. West Ham – Manuel Pellegrini 10 Claudio Ranieri was a disastrous appointment for the Cottagers Solskjaer has endured a tough time since being appointed permanent Red Devils boss Premier League Team of the Season so far, including Liverpool and Leicester stars center_img Fulham had three different managers throughout the season – more than any other club.Slavisa Jokanovic was sacked after the Cottagers gained just five points from their opening 12 matches.Ranieri took over but was given his marching orders after just 16 games following ten losses.Parker somewhat steadied the ship but it was too late as Fulham had already been relegated. A dismal campaign for all involved.18. Brighton – Chris HughtonChris Hughton was sacked at the end of the season – a decision which many regarded as unjust.However, it has to be said the Seagulls have been poor all season and if it wasn’t for their FA Cup run, Hughton might have been dismissed earlier.Furthermore, Brighton’s recruitment has been really poor. Signings such as Jahanbakhsh and Locadia have failed to live up to expectations.17. Manchester United – Jose Mourinho/Ole Gunnar Solskjaer getty images The fact that no side has ever achieved a domestic treble goes to show just how good this City team is.Guardiola has not won the Champions League since his Barcelona days and he will want to tick that off with his group of stars next season. With the resources available to him Benitez has once again over-performed with Newcastle.The Spaniard recruited smartly for his side, with Fabian Schar and Martin Dubravka proving to be shrewd pieces of business.In January he signed Miguel Almiron and he looks to be an exciting addition.If Benitez remains as manager and is backed in the market they should progress up the table next season.7. Arsenal  – Unai EmeryShould Arsenal lose the Europa League their season can only be seen as a disappointment.The Gunners’s away form has been disastrous and they should have wrapped up top four with many games to spare.6. Chelsea – Maurizio SarriThere is no doubting that Chelsea have been very poor at times this season, but when you look at the campaign on paper Sarri has achieved all the objectives set out for him.The Blues have reached two cup finals and finished third in the Premier League – there’s not a lot more Sarri could have done.Next season, he will have a full pre-season to install his methods and a real judgement can be made then.5. Watford – Javi Gracia no dice tense Getty Real Madrid ‘offer’ Isco to Chelsea in bid to ‘make room’ for Tottenham star Burnley had a very bad start to the season and their Europa League qualification campaign did not help the cause.However, Dyche, like he always does, found a way to grind out the results and keep them in the top flight.The Englishman is doing a remarkable job at Turf Moor given the resources he has available to him.14. Southampton -Mark Hughes/Ralph Hassenhuttl Green reveals how he confronted Sarri after Chelsea’s 6-0 defeat at Man City shining 10 10 Pellgrini has had a solid first season in charge of the Hammers Hasenhuttle inspired a turnaround in form at Southampton REPLY 10 GETTY LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS 10 Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ 10 10 Poch got Spurs into the top four again this season Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card Berahino hits back at b******t Johnson criticism – ‘I was in a dark place at Stoke’ Some managers have had their best season in football to date, while others will be hoping to erase the last eight months from their memory as soon as possible.But where does each coach in the Premier League rank in 2018/19, compared to what was expected of their club? has analysed each club and it’s season goals and ranked the managers from worst to best… City completed an unprecedented domestic treble last_img
