Klopp will be the heavy favourite for the accolade, having guided Liverpool to their first Premier League title in 30 years, accruing 99 points and a record-equalling 32 victories along the way.
His only rival will likely be Chris Wilder, with the Blades boss helping his team to finish ninth. If they had secured European football, there would be a great case to make for the Yorkshireman but as things are, he had to settle for a midtable finish.
With Rodgers, the Foxes started off the season very well but they struggled in the second half of the campaign and ended up outside of the Champions League places. Lampard, meanwhile, guided Chelsea to fourth place but he is very much the outsider for the award.
