THE Premier League is celebrating its 25th season yet there have been just eight title-winning managers in the history of the league.
That illustrious group looks set to welcome another member shortly with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte on the cusp of becoming just the ninth coach to lift the the trophy.
We asked our friends at Football Whispers to look back on them all and remember their time in the Premier League.
Keep up to date with ALL the football news, gossip, transfers and goals on our page plus fixtures, results and live match commentary.
Sir Alex Ferguson
Manchester United – 1993, 1994, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2013
The Godfather of the Premier League, Sir Alex Ferguson has won more titles, 13, than any other coach in the division’s history.
Appointed boss in 1986 after a trophy-laden stint at Aberdeen – which included three Scottish titles, the Cup Winners’ Cup and Super Cup – Ferguson did not win his first Prem title until the inaugural 1992/93 season.
But once Fergie had found the winning formula at Old Trafford he soon banished any memories of the lean years.
United won the treble in 1999, adding the Champions League and FA Cup to the Premier League title, and won three in a row between 2007 and 2009.
Ferguson retired in 2013 but went out on a high, winning the 2012/13 title before stepping down.
That was United’s last Premier League title.
Blackburn Rovers – 1995
BEST known for his time at Liverpool, where he won nine titles as a player and coach, Dalglish joined Blackburn Rovers when they were in what was known as Division Two.
The Scot took the Lancashire side into the top flight as play-off winners in 1992 and, three years later, they were champions of England after pipping Sir Alex’s Manchester United to the title.
It was a tense affair which went down to the wire.
Heading into the final day of the season Blackburn were top and knew a win would secure the club’s first major trophy in 67 years. But Rovers lost 2-1 at Liverpool, Dalglish’s former club.
However, Manchester United could only draw against West Ham, handing the title to Blackburn.
Dalglish stepped down to become director of football that summer before leaving for good in 1996.
Arsenal – 1998, 2002, 2004
LITTLE-KNOWN when he was appointed as Bruce Rioch’s replacement in 1996, Wenger arrived from Japanese side Nagoya Grampus Eight and changed English football.
The Frenchman, who had stints with Nancy and Monaco before moving east, was met with a degree of distrust as he made radical changes at the Gunners’ training ground.
Most notably improving the players’ diets and raising the levels of professionalism.
Wenger was justified in those changes, though, and in his second season at Highbury, Arsenal won the Premier League for the first time and their first title since 1991.
A second Premier League crown followed four years later and, in 2004, Wenger and Arsenal enjoyed their finest moment together as the Gunners went unbeaten over the course of the season and were crowned the Invincibles.
Chelsea – 2005, 2006, 2014
THE self-appointed Special One arrived in the Premier League in 2004 after winning the Champions League and Uefa Cup with Porto.
It took Mourinho no time to settle into life in England and his side won their first Premier League title – as well as the League Cup – in the Portuguese’s first season at Chelsea.
That was followed up by a second title the following season.
But, just as the Premier League look set for a period of Blue dominance, Mourinho had a spectacular falling out with owner Roman Abramovich and left Stamford Bridge in 2007.
He returned in 2013, after spells with Inter Milan and Real Madrid, and won a third title in his second season before being sacked in 2015 with Chelsea just above the relegation zone.
Chelsea – 2010
THE Italian arrived at Stamford Bridge in 2009 looking to bring the Premier League trophy back to Stamford Bridge after eight honours in as many years at AC Milan.
Ancelotti did just that, winning the league in his first season at the helm, also clinching the FA Cup.
But the following season the Blues finished as runners-up to Manchester United.
That was enough for Abramovich to exercise his itchy trigger finger and sack the former Roma and Milan midfielder in the tunnel following the season’s finale at Everton.
Not that Ancelotti has done too badly since, winning the Champions League with Real Madrid and securing league titles in France and Germany.
Manchester City – 2012
THE 2011/12 campaign will go down as one of the most memorable in Premier League history.
Mancini’s City hosted Queens Park Rangers on the final day while Manchester United went to Sunderland.
The Red Devils won 1-0 and, with City trailing QPR 2-1, it looked as though the title was theirs.
Edin Dzeko pulled the Citizens level in the second minute of stoppage time before Mario Balotelli slid the ball into Sergio Aguero to fire home the winner and clinch the club’s first Premier League title with a last-gasp win.
Mancini, who had already brought the FA Cup to the Etihad Stadium, was sacked the following season after losing a second FA Cup final to minnows Wigan Athletic.
Manchester City – 2014
MANCINI’S replacement at the Etihad Stadium was Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini.
The Chilean was quickly appointed with target of winning five trophies in as many seasons.
The former Real Madrid coach made the ideal start, winning the Premier League title and League Cup in his first season in charge.
Pellegrini was allowed a trophyless season in 2014/15 as City finished second to Mourinho’s Chelsea.
In his final season Pell won a second League Cup but that was not enough to save him and his departure was announced before the season was out.
City went on to finish fourth with Pep Guardiola appointed in the summer of 2016.
Leicester City – 2016
IF Manchester City’s 2012 wim was the most dramatic then Leicester City’s 2016 Premier League triumph was the most incredible.
The Foxes had only just stayed up under Nigel Pearson the previous campaign, following a remarkable turnaround in form just as safety had started to look beyond them.
Pearson left that summer and was replaced – controversially – by former Chelsea, Juventus and Inter coach Ranieri who had just been sacked by Greece.
Famously labelled the Tinkerman following his time in England, Ranieri defied odds of 5,000/1 to win the title with the Foxes.
He was dismissed earlier this season with Leicester in relegation trouble.
