He may not have gotten off to the start he was hoping for, losing 2-0 to Watford at Vicarage Road, but David Moyes‘ first game in charge of West Ham United was his 500th as a manager in the Premier League.
The former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland boss is only the third manager in Premier League history to reach the 500-games-managed mark, an impressive achievement for the man who took the reins at Goodison Park in 2002.
In the modern game, when a handful of bad results can see a manager's job on line regardless of prior achievements, longevity is rare.
Indeed, only 12 managers have overseen more than 300 Premier League games since the division's inception in 1992. Can you name them all?
