Can you name the 7 managers with better Premier League starts than Jürgen Klopp?

In esteemed company.

Ever since Jürgen Klopp’s arrival at Anfield last season, there has been a real buzz at Liverpool.

The former Borussia Dortmund manager took a team that wasn’t even in contention for a Champions League place and turned them into title challengers in the space of 12 months.

Klopp is now 50 games into his tenure, and has picked up 92 points in the league during that spell, as well as leading the Reds to last season’s Europa League final.

If you think that sounds impressive, you’d be right.

Of the more than 200 managers to have taken charge of Premier League teams since 1992, just seven have won more points than Klopp in their first 50 games.

How many of them can you name?
