The 2019/20 Premier League Manager Of The Season Nominees Revealed
The four managers are all in contention for this season's prize after leading their clubs to stellar campaigns.
Fans have until August 10 to choose their favoruite and their votes will be combined with those of a panel of football experts to decide the winner.
However, a section of supporters disagreed with Lampard's inclusion as they took to social media to question his nomination.
Fans also put forward a case for Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who steered the Reds to third in the league.

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer never lost a Pl game since Jan 22nd, first manager in Pl history to score 3 or more goals in 4 consecutive games, got numerous Pl MOTM nominations and finished 3rd but somehow fat Frank Lampard is nominated and he's not. this agenda stinks! :joy: https://t.co/xZIQ7AEC79- Philzy (@Philzutd) August 7, 2020
Rodgers beaten home and away by Ole and finished 5th while Lampard was beaten home and away by Ole and finished 4th. Toss up between them two for the winner. https://t.co/H3fNWoFp9F- Jay Motty (@JayMotty) August 7, 2020
If you're crying about Lampard being nominated for the manager of the season and not Ole then clearly you don't know the circumstances we had prior to this season- Mod (@CFCMods) August 7, 2020

Another argued: "Transfer ban, academy players, Best player left, etc.. still managed top4 and FA final. No one deserves more than him."
A third wrote: "2 managers who finished below Ole after being so far ahead of him. How on earth is Lampard thee when Ole beat him twice and finished above him. As for Rodgers, he bottled a 14 point gap on 5th. Classic births media bias."
A fan tweeted: "Anything other than Frank Lampard is wrong."
Liverpool's German boss is the favourite to claim the coveted prize after leading his side to their first ever Premier League title with a remarkable campaign.
In his first full season as Chelsea manager, Lampard guided his team to Champions League qualification after finishing fourth in the league.
Rodgers delivered a superb campaign for Leicester City who finished fifth in the league while Wilder secured a top half position (9th) following promotion to the top flight.
There's no place for Manchester City gaffer Pep Guardiola who won the award last season.
