It’s been a while, but England is making a comeback in the Premier League. Perhaps the best European striker over the past four seasons, Harry Kane, is English. Raheem Sterling now ranks among the game's best wingers after his 2018/19 campaign. He is English.

More importantly in 2019/20, at least three new English gaffers will stand in Premier League technical areas. Home cooking is back in fashion. This is not a Golden Generation, not yet anyway, but it's trending in that direction. There will be at least six English managers in the Premier League next season, seven if Frank Lampard lands the Chelsea job.

English coaches wanted a stage. Now they have it. Whether they are successful remains to be seen.

Indeed, how each defines success differs from the others? It depends on their club, the players and the level of backing from their respective boards. Here's a look at what fans can realistically expect.
