FaceApp predicts how Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal bosses and Steve Bruce could look come May

FaceApp predicts how Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal bosses and Steve Bruce could look come May

The Russia-based app applies filters to photos and first went viral back in 2017.

But a filter that makes users look older or younger has been doing the rounds on social media and Starsport has put some of this season’s Premier League managers through a makeover.

We’ve taken six managers who could be set for make or break seasons and it’s clear some could come out looking more worse for wear than others if they have a stressful campaign.

Steve Bruce

The newest boss to grace England’s top flight is Steve Bruce after he was appointed Newcastle’s new manager on Wednesday.

Magpies fans are already unhappy following Rafa Benitez’s departure and Bruce’s appointment was met with plenty of #BruceOut replies on Twitter.

With the fans already on his back and Newcastle losing star man Ayoze Perez with his striker options limited, it could be a very long season for the former Sheffield Wednesday boss.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

All eyes will be on Solskjaer when United kick off their Premier League campaign against Chelsea on the opening weekend.

After hitting the ground running in December having taken over from Jose Mourinho, United tailed off towards the end of the season that culminated in an embarrassing defeat to relegated Cardiff on the last day.

Running one of the biggest clubs in world football brings about its own problems but that’s before your players start turning on you.

Solskaer has already had to deal with Paul Pogba wanting to leave, Romelu Lukaku looking for a new club and trouble offloading Alexis Sanchez.

Strap yourself in, Ole.

Frank Lampard

If Lampard thought last season’s Play-Offs were stressful with Derby then he’s in for a shock this year.

While the youthful looking 41-year-old is all smiles for now having returned to his Stamford Bridge home, he could soon be seeing wrinkles appear if results don’t go his way.

He has the excuse of having to work with what he’s got due to their transfer embargo but he knows Roman Abramovich will be breathing down his neck if things turn sour.

Unai Emery

The Spaniard has already been pulling out his hair all summer trying to work with a £45m transfer budget.

Failure to secure Champions League football last season has cost them dearly in their attempts to secure targets with Wilfried Zaha well out of their budget.

Moves for Celtic’s Kieran Tierney, Saint-Etienne’s William Saliba and Real Madrid’s Dani Ceballos have all dragged on.

And Emery knows more than most how brutal Arsenal fans can be if they endure another season without silverware.

Dean Smith

Aston Villa have finally sealed their return to the Premier League having successfully negotiated the Play-Offs last season.

But the hard work really starts now. Villa have splashed nearly £100m on new players but Smith will be keen to avoid following in Fulham’s footsteps from last term.

Newly promoted teams are nearly always favourites with the bookies to be relegated and this year is no different.

Smith will soon be developing grey hairs if Villa look to be heading for the drop.

Roy Hodgson

The Crystal Palace boss is already becoming concerned at a lack of transfer activity with just a goalkeeper through the doors this summer.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has departed while they face a fight on their hands to keep hold of Zaha.

Hodgson has experience on his side and to be honest as the oldest Premier League manager in history at 71 years of age, we wanted to see exactly how he’d look when put through FaceApp.
