1. Manuel Pellegrini
Despite being the manager of Real Madrid and Malaga, Manuel Pellegrini has never won a trophy.
Taking over from Roberto Mancini who led his former side to their first English title in decades, it was difficult to think Pellegrini was the right fit.
Making City play even more attractive football and making them demolish teams was hard to foresee, but that's exactly what he's managed so far.
Unbeaten at home after six months in the Premier League, annihilating Manchester United and Arsenal, it's difficult to see how City won't win the title.
If Pellegrini solves their away form, they'll run away with it.
He's played much more expansive football this season, with Jesus Navas and Alvaro Negredo proving to be excellent additions to his side.
He's improved players such as Samir Nasri and Yaya Toure (who thought it was possible?) as well.
