Just four Premier League bosses are more popular than Norwich City head coach Daniel Farke on social media, according to an extensive study during the opening 10 games of the season.
BetVictor claim to have analysed over one million Twitter posts - stating that 70 percent of the tweets about Daniel Farke were positive, placing him fifth overall.
Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder leads the way with 78pc after a positive start to campaign for his boyhood club, ahead of Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola (76pc), Liverpool chief Jurgen Klopp (74pc) and Graham Potter of Brighton (71pc).
Meanwhile, it's Arsenal's Unai Emery getting the most negative comments (75pc), ahead of Everton manager Marco Silva (67pc) and Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino (62pc).
The study also includes the total amount of posts about each manager, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer way out in front with 291,675, ahead of Chelsea chief Frank Lampard (183,987) and Klopp (143,342).
