THE BIGGER PICTURE: The club's search for a new long-term boss – with Ryan Mason taking caretaker charge for the rest of the season – has been chequered so far. After sacking Antonio Conte, they've turned down the chance to re-appoint Mauricio Pochettino, who now looks destined for Chelsea. Julian Naglesmann and Vincent Kompany were both linked with the role but neither now looks likely to be appointed.

AND WHAT'S MORE: Frank has worked wonders at Brentford since being promoted from the assistant manager's job in 2018. He guided them to promotion in 2021 and they've performed solidly in both Premier League campaigns under his stewardship.
