Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been named Manager of the Season by Gary Neville in the end of season Monday Night Football awards.

“If Tuchel wins the Champions League, the FA Cup and Chelsea finish in the top four then it’s him,” Neville told Monday Night Football.

“If you said to me three or four months ago that Chelsea would win the FA Cup, the Champions League and finish in the top four, I would have said ‘no chance’. To win a Champions League is a massive thing.

“Brendan Rodgers has done brilliantly and you do have to balance off the budget and the players these managers have. Rodgers and Sean Dyche are exceptional managerial performances – and David Moyes at West Ham has been exceptional too.

“But I would still go with Guardiola or Tuchel because to win the Champions League and the league in the same season takes some doing.”
