At present, Brighton & Hove Albion manager Graham Potter is the bookies favourite in this Special, as his side have had a promising start to the 2021/22 season, seeing the Seagulls sit in fifth-place. The progress that Brighton have shown on the pitch, has prompted Potter to be linked with several high profile roles, such as that of Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United and even Newcastle United, following the latter being taken over by the Suadi Arabia Public Investment Fund, seeing them become the richest club in world football by nearly £300bn.

Graham Potter Odds: 3/1
Gareth Southgate Odds: 9/2
England manager Gareth Southgate is next up on this list, as the 51-year-old former Middlesbrough coach has reinvigorated the Three Lions with semi-finals appearances in both the 2018 World Cup and Nations League one year later, as well as leading his country to the final of Euro 2020, the first time England had been to a major final since 1966.
Due to his impressive achievements, Southgate has been linked with the likes of Manchester United and more, meaning that if he was to land one of these major roles in club football, then he would likely put his hat in the ring to become the first-ever manager to win the Premier League title.
Steven Gerrard Odds: 7/1
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard is next up and is priced at 7/1 to win the Premier League title as a manager, having failed to do so as a player during his illustrious career at Liverpool.
With rumours suggesting that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is to leave Anfield in 2024 at the end of his contract, that would mean that the Reds would have their first new manager in nine years and this would undoubtedly give Gerrard the opportunity to further build his already growing managerial reputation, having ended Celtic’s nine-year dominance of Scottish football by winning the league title with fierce rivals Rangers, going on an unbeaten season with 32 wins and six draws, as well as scoring 92 goals and conceding just 13 times.

Chris Wilder Odds: 8/1
Former Sheffield United Chris Wilder is priced at 8/1 to be the first English manager to win the Premier League.
Wilder is currently without a job, but, has been linked with several Premier League jobs and high-end Championship sides.
If Wilder is to become the first English manager to win the top-flight since it’s rebrand at the start of the 1992/93 season, then he will have to further build up managerial reputation by taking a job and sustaining himself in the top-flight, using that club as a stepping stone, before taking a job at one of the ‘big six’. The former Sheffield United manager has been a success at every club that he has been at, having won promotion at Alfreton Town, Oxford United, Northampton Town and two promotions at Bramall Lane, seeing the club rise from League One to the Premier League.
Scott Parker Odds: 8/1
The final manager on this list is AFC Bournemouth coach Scott Parker, who currently sees his side sit at the top of the Championship.
Parker has connections with big clubs in the Premier League, having previously played for the likes of Chelsea, Newcastle and Tottenham and if the 41-year-old earns the Cherries promotion, which would be his second in three seasons having managed it in his time at Fulham, then he must consolidate their place in the top-flight, having failed to do so at Craven Cottage.
The former England international is believed to have left Fulham due to his frustrations with the board, meaning that he could get more freedom to build a squad at Bournemouth, and progress his managerial reputation towards one that would fit the bill for one of the big six or even at his old club Newcastle.
