Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola and Liverpool counterpart Jurgen Klopp cannot be separated in the voting for Sports Mole's Premier League Manager of the Season award.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola and Liverpool counterpart Jurgen Klopp have been announced as joint-winners of Sports Mole's Premier League Manager of the Season award.

The duo did battle at the top of the table throughout the campaign, with Guardiola and Man City eventually coming out on top with 98 points - just one point more than Liverpool managed having run the champions close all the way.

There was nothing at all to separate the two in our annual Reader Awards, though, with both Guardiola and Klopp claiming 35.2% of the voting to share the Manager of the Season gong.

Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo's good work was also recognised with 20.8% of the votes, having led the promoted Wolves to a seventh-placed finish in their first season back in the top flight.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino earned only 4% of the votes despite leading the club to a top-four finish and the Champions League final, while Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri received 3.2%.

Rafael Benitez of Newcastle United and FA Cup finalist Javi Gracia of Watford were also among the final shortlist, but only claimed a small slither of the votes.
