Premier League revealed the names of the most effective coaches of January. Four candidates showed more successful results than their colleagues. It’s up to us to choose the best one. Who is worthy to be called the best banager of January?
|Manager\Stats||Wins||Draws||Losses||Points||Goals for/goals against|
|Graham Potter (Brighton & Hove Albion)||2||2||1||8||5/4|
|Mikel Arteta (Arsenal)||3||2||0||11||10/1|
|Pep Guardiola (Manchester City)||6||0||0||18||16/1|
|David Moyes(West Ham United)||4||0||1||12||8/6|
- Potter steered Brighton & Hove Albion to impressive 1-0 victories against Leeds United and Tottenham Hotspur as they moved seven points clear of the relegation zone, with a run of just one defeat in five matches at the start of the year.
- Arsenal was unbeaten in Premier League in January. The Spaniard Arteta guided Londoners to three victories – against Chelsea, Newcastle and Southampton, while also securing draws at home to Crystal Palace and Manchester United. The team was able to recover from a string of poor performances, and Arsenal’s problematic defense became one of the best in the league.
- January proved to be a perfect month for Guardiola and City, with those six league wins forming part of a remarkable sequence that saw the Club claim another record in English football. Cup victories over Manchester United, Birmingham City and Cheltenham Town took their January tally of wins to nine – the most by a team in the top four tiers of English football in a single month since the formation of the Football League in 1888.
- Moyes led West Ham United to 12 points out of a possible 15 to secure his third nomination for the award in a row, having also been shortlisted in November and December. Under the Scot, the Hammers won 1-0 at Everton on New Year’s Day, then defeated Burnley by the same scoreline at London Stadium. A 2-1 home win over West Bromwich Albion was followed by a thrilling 3-2 victory at Crystal Palace to make it four wins in a row.
