Frank Lampard is Chelsea's first English manager in 23 years as the Blues buck the big six trend

Frank Lampard: Chelsea manager
Frank Lampard: Chelsea manager

We look at the last Englishmen to take permanent charge at each of the current Premier League top six after Frank Lampard became Chelsea manager.

The Blues' record goalscorer is back at Stamford Bridge where he spent 13 successful years as a player, scoring 211 goals and winning 13 major trophies.

But will the club's decision to appoint their first Englishman for 23 years after just one season of managerial experience with play-off finalists Derby pay-off?

They've bucked a trend by appointing an Englishman for the first time this Millennium while the rest of the 'big six' don't tend to adopt that policy either.

Here we look at the last English managers for all of the big six and how they fared, while we also list the last time all these clubs lifted a trophy under an Englishman.

Manchester City

  • Stuart Pearce: March 2005-May 2007
  • Trophies won: None
  • Record: Played 96, Won 34, Drawn 19, Lost 43

Former England captain Pearce took the reins first as a caretaker after Kevin Keegan's departure in March 2005 before taking on the position full-time a couple of months later following some early success, during which they missed out on a UEFA Cup place by a slender margin. At one stage Pearce was touted to replace Sven-Goran Eriksson as England manager but underwhelming finishes of 15th and 14th in the Premier League in the next couple of seasons led to his sacking. In the months before then Pearce had been juggling his City duties with the England Under-21s role.

  • Last English manager to win a major trophy at Man City: Tony Book, League Cup 1976

Liverpool

  • Roy Hodgson: July 2010-January 2011
  • Trophies won: None
  • Record: Played 31, Won 13, Drawn 9, Lost 9

The well-travelled Roy Hodgson, on the back of leading Fulham to the Europa League final, replaced Rafael Benitez amid a backdrop of uncertainty in the summer of 2010. With the club up for sale, Hodgson was far from the popular choice on Merseyside as Liverpool great Kenny Dalglish emerged as an unlikely candidate. The future England manager would go on to win only seven of his 20 Premier League matches in charge in a turbulent six months he described as "the most challenging of my career" ending when he left the club by mutual consent in January 2011 - replaced by Dalglish.

  • Last English manager to win a major trophy at Liverpool: Roy Evans, League Cup 1995

Chelsea

  • Glenn Hoddle: June 1993-May 1996
  • Trophies won: None
  • Record: Played 157, Won 53, Drawn 54, Lost 50

Glenn Hoddle's journey to the Stamford Bridge hot seat was not dissimilar to Lampard's. An England great and a goal-scoring midfielder, Hoddle's first management position was with Swindon, whom he led to the play-offs in 1993 although, unlike Lampard, he orchestrated a win in the final to get the Robins into the Premier League. Hoddle then immediately left to take over as player-manager at Chelsea - he retired from playing in 1995 - leading them to the FA Cup final in his first season. He was unable to finish higher than 11th in the top flight in his three seasons in west London before leaving to take the England job after Euro 96.

  • Last English manager to win a major trophy at Chelsea: Dave Sexton, 1971 European Cup Winners' Cup

Tottenham

  • Tim Sherwood: December 2013-May 2014
  • Trophies won: None
  • Record: Played 28, Won 14, Drawn 4, Lost 10

Another former England midfielder in Tim Sherwood was assistant to Harry Redknapp and then served as technical director before being tasked with assuming "first-team coaching duties" following the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas in December 2013. Sherwood signed an 18-month deal with a break clause at the end of the 2013-14 campaign, which was exercised by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy after he was only able to guide the club to sixth place, finishing 10 points behind the Champions League qualification spots. They had only been five back when Sherwood was appointed.

  • Last English manager to win a trophy at Tottenham: Terry Venables, FA Cup 1991

Arsenal

  • Bruce Rioch: June 1995-August 1996
  • Trophies won: None
  • Record: Played 47, Won 22, Drawn 15, Lost 10

There may be a little debate on this one as Bruce Rioch was the last English-born manager of the Gunners, whom he guided to a fifth-place finish in 1995-96 in his only campaign in charge. However, the man who brought Dennis Bergkamp to north London captained Scotland during his playing career. Before Rioch, the previous English-born manager was Don Howe, who ended his playing career at Arsenal before returning to take temporary charge at the end of 1983, a position he took permanently in April of the following year. However, after two years without a trophy, he stood down.

  • Last English manager to win a trophy at Tottenham: Bertie Mee, First Division & FA Cup 1971

Manchester United

  • Rob Atkinson: June 1981-November 1986
  • Trophies won: Two FA Cups, One Charity Shield
  • Record: Played 292, Won 146, Drawn 79, Lost 67

Before the Sir Alex Ferguson era, Ron Atkinson was the man tasked with bringing the glory days back to Old Trafford following a lean period in the decade since Sir Matt Busby's departure. Appointed in June 1981, Atkinson would oversee five consecutive top-four Division One finishes as well as two FA Cup triumphs, making him by far the most successful United manager since Busby. Speculation had been mounting for months he would be replaced, though, long before a disappointing start to the 1986-87 season led to him being sacked in November 1986, when he was succeeded by Ferguson.

  • Last English manager to win a trophy at Manchester United: Ron Atkinson, FA Cup 1985

Frank Lampard at Chelsea

  • Seasons: 2001-02 to 2013-14
  • Appearances: 648
  • Goals: 211

Honours:

  • Premier League: 2004-05, 2005-06, 2009-10
  • FA Cup: 2006-07, 2008-09, 2009-10, 2011-12
  • League Cup: 2004-05, 2006-07
  • Champions League: 2011-12
