  • Graham Potter bookmakers favourite to be first English manager to win the Premier League
  • England National Team manager Gareth Southgate second favourite in market at 9/2
  • 5 time winner as a player Wayne Rooney is 12/1 to be the first English manager to win it

Brighton manager Graham Potter 3/1 favourite to be the first English manager to win Premier League

There's a lot of hype around Brighton manager Graham Potter currently, with Potter's Brighton side playing some of the best football since Albion were promoted to the Premier League back in 2017. 

Brighton currently sit in 5th place in the Premier League above Tottenham and Manchester United and such an impressive start has seen eyes on Graham Potter. 

In pretty much any betting market that comes up in the Premier League, Graham Potter's name is always in and around the favourites. 

Tottenham themselves were rumoured to have been sniffing around Potter before they signed Nuno Espirito Santo. 

It's no surprise then that we see Graham Potter as the favourite to be the first Englishman to win the Premier League as Potter could see himself at a club with those aspirations in the next few years. 

No disrespect is meant towards Brighton in saying that, but Albion fans will know that they are overachieving in the league under Potter and will hope that continues for the remainder of the season. 

Graham Potter is the current flavour of the month in England and odds of 3/1 that he becomes the first English manager to win the Premier League suggests that that may continue.

Gareth Southgate second in the market suggest a return to the Premier League could be on the cards

Gareth Southgate is second in the market to be the first English Premier League manager, either suggesting that Southgate will see himself back in the competition soon or that there's just no chance anytime soon of an English manager winning it.

Admittedly, with the talent that's in the Premier League including Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel, it'll be hard for an English manager to beat those three never mind win the Premier League. 

Southgate has recently been linked with Manchester United according to various reports in the press, although currently sees himself at odds of 33/1 to be their next manager with bookies

If Southgate was to take over at Old Trafford though, this will surely leave him with a big chance of winning the Premier League. 

First English Manager to win the Premier League  Odds Implied Probability
Graham Potter 3/1 25%
Gareth Southgate 9/2 18.2%
Steven Gerrard 7/1 12.5%
Chris Wilder 8/1 11.1%
Scott Parker 8/1 11.1%
Eddie Howe 10/1 9.1%
Dean Smith 12/1 7.7%
Wayne Rooney 12/1

Wayne Rooney 12/1 in the market to win the Premier League first

Wayne Rooney is arguably one of the most decorated English footballers of all time, with 5 Premier League titles, a Champions League, and more in a 13 major trophy haul at Man United. 

It would be no surprise with Rooney's winning mentality if he was the first English manager to win the Premier League. 

Currently though, Rooney sees himself at Derby County who are bottom of the Championship after a points deduction of 12 points led them to go from mid-table to the depths of the Championship. 

A further points deduction may be on the cards which would all but seal Derby's relegation to League 1, but a run of good form under Rooney has led fans to believe in safety come the end of the season.

If Rooney did manage to miraculously keep Derby in the Championship then we may start to see other clubs look to him as manager. 

Manchester United and Everton, two of Rooney's former clubs, could well come looking at Wayne Rooney to become their manager in future years. What a story that would be.
