London, UK. 15th Apr, 2023. Frank Lampard, Manager of Chelsea looks on during the warm up before the Premier League match at Stamford Bridge, London.

Ranking every Premier League manager by their PPG this season

The 2022-23 Premier League campaign has been notable for a particularly ruthless churn of managers. Less than half of the 20 managers that started the season remain at their clubs, with Antonio Conte, Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter among the most high-profile sackings.

But which managers have fared the best and worst when you compare them all? We’ve taken a closer look at the 33 different full-time managerial stints in the English top-flight this season and ranked them by their overall points-per-game record.

Two coaches – Frank Lampard and Graham Potter – have taken charge of two different Premier League clubs this season, and we’ve included their different jobs for context.

When combining their overall records in the Premier League this season, Lampard’s win percentage between Everton and Chelsea stands at 0.68 and Potter’s between Brighton and Chelsea stands at 1.46.

Of course, it’s worth taking certain names on this list with a very large pinch of salt given the wild discrepancies in sample sizes.

For example, Frank Lampard has only taken charge of two Premier League matches since returning to Chelsea and Leicester City’s 3-1 defeat to Manchester City was Dean Smith’s first and only match in charge of the Foxes.

Still, we’re very much enjoying Roy Hodgson’s place at the top of the tree as things stand. The 75-year-old is the Premier League’s oldest-ever manager and appears to be having a lovely time back at Crystal Palace, having led them to three victories from three matches so far.

“We knew Leeds would be a tough ask and we knew Southampton would, so to come away with six points to say I’m happy with that would be a gross understatement,” Hodgson told reporters following the Eagles’ 2-0 victory over Southampton this season.

“But I’d still like to see us get some more points and I’d like to see this team continue to play in the way it’s capable of playing because it’s been a tough season for the club and a tough season for the players.”

We’ve not included caretaker managers, full-time appointments only.

For Cristian Stellini, we’ve included the three games in which he’s been ‘acting’ manager at Tottenham, but not the games in which he stepped in while Antonio Conte was absent. Despite not being in the dugout, we’ve included those as being part of Conte’s record as he was still officially in charge.

In bold, we’ve included the nine managers who started the season in charge of their respective clubs and remain in their posts now. In Italics, we’ve included managers that have been appointed since the start of the season.

Whereby two managers are tied over the points-per-game, we’ve listed them in ascending order by which coach took charge of more games in the stint.
