Impressive Wolves boss Nuno joins Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino on shortlist for Premier League manager of the season

Wolves Manager Nuno Espirito Santo shortlisted alongside Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino for Premier League manager of the season.

With Manchester City and Liverpool locked in a title race which will go to the wire in Sunday’s final round of fixtures, their respective managers are on the list along with Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino and Wolves’ Nuno Espirito Santo.

Guardiola is looking to become only the third manager to retain the title after Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho in the Premier League era, and is in the box seat with his City side certain of the trophy if they can win at Brighton on Sunday.

Guardiola was also the 2017/18 Barclays Manager of the Season after breaking several records along the way.  

However, City have been pushed all the way by Klopp’s Liverpool, who have lost only once this season – at City. 

The Reds have amassed 94 points, the fourth-highest tally of any team in a single Premier League season, leaving them only one point behind City.

Liverpool has also made Anfield a fortress having remained unbeaten at home with just one game to go.

Though Pochettino’s Spurs have suffered something of a late dip in form, the Argentinian has been recognised for keeping them in the running for a top-four finish despite not making a single signing in the summer and suffering the disruption of a delayed move to their new stadium.

Nuno’s Wolves, only promoted last summer, have collected 57 points ahead of their trip to Anfield on Sunday, the most for any promoted team for 18 years.
