Mauricio Pochettino Spurs want Philippe Coutinho
Pochettino Spurs

The November international break has just kick-started which means that we can finally catch our breath and look at the weeks gone by.

Manchester City are still the best team in England sitting pretty at the top of the table while Liverpool and Chelsea are hot on their heals.

Tottenham Hotspur have made their best ever start to a Premier League season but still they find themselves five points adrift of the top spot.




With the international break about to begin out good friends at ESPN decided to take a look rate the managers of the so-called big six clubs in England.

Pep Guardiola:

Grade A





One of the three clubs still to lose a game in the Premier League and are currently sitting at the top of the table – two points clear of Liverpool.

Pep Guardiola’s men look all set to defend their Premier League crown but with two-thirds of the season still to go, we will have to wait and see if the players can keep up the same momentum.



Jurgen Klopp:

Grade B+





Liverpool have managed to win nine out of their 12 Premier League games and are just two points behind Manchester City.

The Reds have a rock solid defence and Vigil Van Dijk is easily the best centre-back in England right now. The only thing left for Jurgen Klopp to do is to get his team perform better in the Champions League.



Maurizio Sarri:

Grade B+





Sarriball is working wonders in the Premier League despite many pundits predicting that Maurizio Sarri will not be able to work his magic this season.

Sarri has made a number of changes to his first XI with the most prominent ones being the introduction of Jorginho and giving N’Golo Kante a new role.

Mauricio Pochettino:

Grade C

Tottenham Hotspur have made their best ever start to the Premier League this season but the fact that they did not sign a single player during the summer transfer window is slowly beginning to show its effect.

The first team squad is showing some signs of fatigue and it will be now up to Pochettino as to how he rotates his players.



Unai Emery:

Grade B+





When Unai Emery took charge of Arsenal his biggest job was to get the Gunners back into the Champions League.

But the former PSG boss has done way more than done as the London outfit look serious title contenders.

They might not be able to win the Premier League title this season but Emery’s men will surely push hard to finish as close to the top as possible.



Jose Mourinho:

Grade D





The only manager amongst the big six clubs who had the scare of being sacked a couple of weeks ago.

But Jose Mourinho has managed to ride that storm and since then his team have managed to string together some fine performances.




Man United now sit eigth on the League table and their biggest challenge will be to qualify for the Champions League next season.
