No matter what happens this season, Sheffield United have managed to defy all expectations with their incredible form since their promotion from the Championship.
Much of the credit has to go to manager Chris Wilder who has done an incredible job of getting them to seventh in the table after 28 games played. We asked fans whether he deserves to be named the Premier League’s manager of the year, and almost two-thirds of you agreed:
Of course, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has also done fantastically well for the Reds. Having dropped just five points all season is no mean feat but the loss of their unbeaten record last month does take the shine off things slightly.
You also have to consider the contrast in resources which both managers have at their disposal, and taking everything into consideration, you can’t deny that Wilder would be a more than worthy winner of the accolade.
