After Sunday's spat between Antonio Conte and Thomas Tuchel, the topic of managers fighting seems to be on everyone's minds. Over the years we've seen Premier League managers come to blows with each other, players and even fans from time to time.
Twitter has been hopping since Sunday's scrap between Tuchel and Conte and this one user took advantage of it, tweeting this.
Now Sean dyche has gone who’d win a royal rumble between the PL managers

It's a very important question. Of course, in a Royal Rumble, 30 professional wrestlers battle to avoid being thrown over the top rope.
The most common answers and replies have been for one man - Patrick Vieira - and could anyone possibly go against this? Vieira was known for his tough tackling and for being an all round hard player.
Last season, after Crystal Palace fell to a defeat against Everton, many Toffee supporters broke onto the pitch and approached Vieira. The former Arsenal skipper was quick to defend himself and kicked out at one fan.

Another name being mentioned is Jurgen Klopp. Standing at 6 feet 3 inches, the Liverpool manager would certainly bring a reach advantage to the fight. Last year, Klopp clashed with then Burnley manager Sean Dyche at Anfield and anybody that is tough enough to challenge Dyche, can't be ruled out of winning the Rumble.
Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper is another name that people reckon could contest comfortably. Cooper played to a semi-professional level during his playing days and was a no nonsense centre back. Standing at just under six foot, Cooper might not have the same height as the likes of Vieira and Klopp but he does give off a slight hard man persona.
Other replies have been for the likes of Conte and Tuchel after the weekend's bout between the pair with Steven Gerrard and Scott Parker's names also being thrown around.
It's been pointed out by a few people that the managers of the relegation-threatened clubs would gang on Pep Guardiola, stifling his chances.

Sadly, many feel Erik Ten Hag wouldn't last very long.
