The 2021-22 Premier League season has come to a close and with it, a number of questions regarding the future of several managers. After leading Chelsea to five consecutive wins to end the season, manager Mauricio Pochettino is unsure if he'll remain at the club beyond the second year of his contract. Meanwhile, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp bid farewell to the Premier League after a memorable last game at Anfield. There is no doubt that the league will miss him, as he brings a confidence and authority that is unmatched.

Arsenal missed out on Champions League football next year, despite their 2-1 win over Everton. However, manager Mikel Arteta insists that Arsenal's time will come, as he refutes any empty promises. Instead, he believes that this team is closer than ever to the silverware they have longed for.
