The 2021/2022 Premier League season ended on one of the most exiting weekend's football has seen in a while! Going into the final weekend, no one had been declared the champions and the fight was on between Manchester City and Liverpool FC.

Manchester City ended up taking the title win as they came back from being 0-2 down, to win 3-2 and claim the Premier League title. Though the fight was on the pitch between Manchester City and Liverpool, there was also a competition in the dug out between managers Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp.

Guardiola and Klopp were shortlisted for Manager of the Year alongside: Thomas Frank (Brentford), Eddie Howe (Newcastle United) and Patrick Vieira (Crystal Palace).

Many fans believed Eddie Howe, who signed to manage Newcastle in November, would take this title due to his amazing work bringing NUFC out of the relegation zone; however, fans were disappointed to find that this was not the case.

Howe came to Newcastle during their worst stint to date! He came when they were winless for 11 games. Since Howe, Newcastle have had a 48% success rate - which is an incredible improvement. Eddie Howe deserves some recognition for this amazing turn around.

Thomas Frank and Patrick Vieira were also among those shortlisted to miss out after guiding once-relegation threatened Crystal Palace and Brentford to safe mid-table finishes. Frank's midseason signing of fellow Dane Christian Eriksen and his transformation of the Bees was one of the stories of the season. Vieira, taking over from stalwart Roy Hodgson, got the best out of the Eagles' squad in his first season at the South London club.

Meanwhile, going back to the fight! Guardiola and Klopp were close contenders as both their clubs were competing for the top of the table! Unfortunately, for Guardiola, Klopp took the trophy!

Guardiola may have lost out due to his early signings - Jack Grealish coming to Manchester City, costing £100mil, and not playing his best or not playing at all was definitely a failure of Guardiola's behalf. It could be said that the former Aston Villa player did not contribute to the teams winning effort.

Klopp, on the other hand, has kept his team together with morale high. His team were contenders for the quadruple, until they missed that top spot in the Premier League.
