Premier League Manager Of The Month Odds – 2020 November
Below you can see the odds and contenders for November’s Premier League Manager Of The Month. You can bet on the outcome of the award with Betfair online.
Jurgen Klopp 4/1
Klopp will want to show that the heavy defeat vs Aston Villa was a one-off. It will be interesting to see how his side recovers, especially after the two-week international break.
Pep Guardiola 9/2
Guardiola’s side has had an inconsistent start to the season. Their defensive frailties were on show in a 5-2 defeat against Leicester City and will have to improve in that area if Guardiola is to win his 8th award.
Frank Lampard 13/2
These odds do look great value, but Lampard’s side will have to improve defensively. They had an extraordinary second-half comeback to snatch a draw against the recently promoted West Brom. They have attacking line up that is the envy of most teams across Europe.
Mikel Arteta 10/1
The Spaniard had a successful end to the 2019/2020 season, leading Arsenal to FA Cup triumph. He has started to build on that success with a decent start to the current campaign. He will be hoping that the extra games with the Europa League won’t hinder the Gunners good start.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 12/1
After a poor start to the season, Solskjaer will be desperate for United to hit some form over the next few weeks. Another heavy defeat or two could result in the Norwegian leaving Old Trafford. So much is the unpredictable nature of the Premier League, very few would bet against Ole and United putting together a good run of results like they did last season. He last won the award in January 2019.
Carlo Ancelotti 12/1
Evertonians have fallen in love with the former AC Milan and Real Madrid Manager. With new signing James Rodriguez in form, those odds of 12/1 represent exceptional value. One to watch for sure.
Dean Smith 20/1
Villa narrowly escaped relegation last season, and many of their supporters were worried about another long battle against the drop. Against expectations, they have started the season in fantastic form. The recent 7-2 win against Liverpool being the highlight so far. Should they keep up this form; Dean Smith will undoubtedly be in the running for the award.
