The 2021-2022 Premier League season campaign will come to an end on May 22, 2022, which means that all the Premier League managers in the league have done 90 percent of what they could do for their teams this season.
On May 22, 2022, the Premier League managers are expected to complete their jobs for the season. Though it is just 10 percent of the job left to do before the season ends, the 10 percent is still enough to make or mar some teams’ efforts this season.
For instance, there could be a new league leader if first-placed Manchester City lose to Aston Villa and the second-placed Liverpool beat Wolves on May 22. On the same day, 5th placed Arsenal could jump into the top four if they beat Everton, and Norwich City beat 4th placed Tottenham Hotspur.
On the other hand, 17th placed Burnley could be relegated if they lose to Newcastle United, and 18th placed Leeds United beat Burnley on the last day of the league campaign.
Despite the number of unfinished business in the league, the best Premier League managers have been nominated ahead of the super Sunday.
The eight Premier League managers that have been nominated for the manager of the 2021-2022 season are:
