Premier League managers' celebrity lookalikes including Chelsea and Man Utd bosses

Premier League managers are not adverse to comparisons, but not of this kind.

Having a slick passing move compared to Barcelona is the sort of parallels they hope people will draw while watching their side.
But Starsport have honed in on the managers themselves to see whether their doppelganger is among us.
Lookalikes are always an ambiguous and brave exercise - some flatter, others do quite the opposite.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - Andy Serkis
The Man Utd boss may draw lookalike comparisons with the man whose voice is behind Gollum, the famous Lord of the Rings character.
But right now there's nothing 'precious' about the Norwegian or his players as they continue to underwhelm.
Serkis though does look incredibly like the man who occupies the home dugout at Old Trafford.

Maybe Ed Woodward should consider a swap for the Liverpool clash in an attempt to bring back that new manager kick Solskjaer brought when he took over back in December.
Manuel Pellegrini - Sam Eagle
The West Ham boss won't be over the moon with this, but he should instead check out the positives.
'The Muppets' character is known for his incredible patriotism and willingness to take on responsibility.
Pellegrini, plenty would argue, could command a job that exceeds his current one but his affect on the Hammers is clear to see.
He's been able to attract a higher calibre of player and looks certain to deliver a top half finish based on the opening eight games of the season.

Ralph Hasenhuttl - Bradley Cooper
Mr Cooper, or Phil as he's better known to fans of 'The Hangover, is often the wolfpack's taskmaster.
The Saints supremo has done much the same since arriving a little under a year ago.


He helped arrest their slide towards relegation in 2018/19 and will be further motivated by comparisons to once of Hollywood's most loved actors.

Mauricio Pochettino - Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson)
If we're drawing from this particular scene from 'The Shining' then maybe the similarities begin to make sense.
Mainly because Pochettino is surely reaching boiling point given the state of his Tottenham side.
10 goals conceded in their last two games is enough to justify his want for new players and greater control of recruitment.
That said, I don't think Daniel Levy should anticipate an axe through his office door anytime soon.
Frank Lampard - Woody
I mean the Chelsea youngsters will certainly think they've got a friend in Frank.
Maybe that's part of the similarity, because surely the Chelsea manager can't be chuffed with this.
Woody's immovable barnet with the flick at the front isn't the most in-demand hair style out there for starters.
But Lampard certainly is the sheriff of west London at the moment as his youthful side continue to impress onlookers.
Jurgen Klopp - Matthew Lillard
Lillard is the man behind Scooby Doo having directed a host of productions.

The gang are known for solving enigmas that many have found no answer to.
Much the same could be said about Klopp who is nicely poised to end Liverpool's 30 year title drought.
Since Kenny Dalglish delivered the title in 1990 the Reds have had six permanent managers try and fail to do so again.
Klopp looks to be lucky number seven with Liverpool fans crying 'where are you?' no more
Unai Emery - Basil Fawlty
Despite running a seaside hotel, Basil Fawlty is rarely in the mood to say 'Good Evening' to anyone.
But now that Emery has started to rep the glasses the similarities become more obvious.
It also a testament to Emery's patience that he hasn't been smashing a tree branch on his car having watched his Arsenal side defend.
Were he to do so then surely there would surely be no telling him apart from his TV counterpart.
Eddie Howe - Chris Hemsworth
The Bournemouth boss won't be complaining about this one.
If we're being picky he'd probably rather the similarities extended to the extent of his muscle mass too.
Nevertheless, being likened to the God of Thunder is nothing to be upset about.
Howe is one of the youngest managers in the league so perhaps his youthful looks have worked in his favour.
Pep Guardiola - Stanley Tucci
Another one of Hollywood's finest compared to football's finest in the dugout.

Admittedly a man without any hair is far easier to find comparisons for.
The Man City boss has won a host of honours in his career, Tucci hasn't been able to win as many individual accolades himself despite plenty of nominations.
