5 Managers With the Highest Points Per Game Ratio in Premier League History

There have been a number of great managers to grace the Premier League ever since it was rebranded in 1992. 


While Sir Alex Ferguson was the most transformational manager in the league because of his success with Manchester United, the likes of Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola made their mark instantly in England as well.


Here, we take a look at five managers who have the best points per game ratio in Premier League history:

5. Carlo Ancelotti (Chelsea)

Carlo Ancelotti was appointed by Chelsea in 2009 and made an immediate impact at Stamford Bridge, helping the club win the Premier League, FA Cup and the Community Shield in his debut season.


However, their performances fell off in the following season, but still finished second in the table when he was sacked by the club management. Many believe that he was treated unfairly considering that he is one of the best managers in football history.


Carlo Ancelotti's PL stats:


Seasons: 2

Matches: 76

Points: 157

Points per game: 2.07

Trophies won: 3

4. Jose Mourinho (Chelsea, Manchester United)

The "Special One" was a breath of fresh air in his first stint at Chelsea, where he perfectly complemented owner Roman Abramovich's spending spree by making the club a force to be reckoned with, winning back-to-back league titles in his first spell.


While he did win another league title in his second spell with the Blues, his career went downhill during the latter stages, while his time at Manchester United did not get him any success in the league.


Despite this, there is no doubt that he is one of the best managers in the sport as seen by his success across the world.


Jose Mourinho's PL stats:


Seasons: 10

Matches: 304

Points: 640

Points per game: 2.11

Trophies won: 11

3. Antonio Conte (Chelsea)

Another former Chelsea manager on the list, Antonio Conte like his fellow countryman, Ancelotti made an immediate impact on his arrival, leading the club to the league title in his debut season.


However, things turned sour in the second season with the Blues only managing a fifth place finish. He did help the club win the FA Cup that season. Considered to be one of the best in the business, he was recently appointed manager of Inter Milan, and is known to help turn the fortunes around of clubs during his career.


Antonio Conte's PL stats:


Seasons: 2

Matches: 76

Points: 163

Points per game: 2.14

Trophies won: 2

2. Sir Alex Ferguson (Manchester United)

Widely considered to be the best manager in the history of English football, Sir Alex Ferguson spent 23 years at Manchester United, revolutionising the club and leading them to unprecedented success during his time.


He has won more trophies than any other manager in the history of sport, and such has been his impact that the club have struggled to stay relevant in the six years since he retired.


Sir Alex Ferguson's PL stats:


Seasons: 21

Matches: 810

Points: 1752

Points per game: 2.16

Trophies won: 38

1. Pep Guardiola (Manchester City)

The best manager in football at present, Pep Guardiola revolutionised the way football was played during his time at Barcelona and has done the same in the Premier League ever since he took over the reins at Manchester City.


The Spaniard became the first manager to help his club reach the 100 point mark in the history of English football, while also helping the club become the first team to win the domestic treble in history.


Pep Guardiola's PL stats:


Seasons: 3

Matches: 114

Points: 276

Points per game: 2.42

Trophies won: 6
