Liverpool, Arsenal & Spurs Managers Nominated For Monthly Award
The Premier League have announced the nominations for the September Manager of the Month and there are several big names in the running for the award.
Jurgen Klopp [Liverpool]
Liverpool continued their excellent early-season form with a resounding 4-1 victory over defending champions Leicester City which was followed by a 2-1 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and a 5-1 thrashing of Hull City at Anfield to make it a perfect September for Klopp’s side.
Arsene Wenger [Arsenal]
The Gunners bounced back from their disappointing start to the campaign by beating Southampton at the Emirates before thrashing Hull City and rounding off an impressive month with a 3-0 hammering of Chelsea to put the north Londoners back in the top four.
Pep Guardiola [Manchester City]
While City may have seen their unbeaten record ended at White Hart Lane on Sunday, September was still a flawless month for the Citizens as Pep Guardiola guided the club to consecutive wins over Manchester United, Bournemouth and Swansea City.
Mauricio Pochettino [Tottenham]
Spurs maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a 4-0 thrashing of Stoke at the Britannia before securing narrow wins over Sunderland and Middlesbrough to keep them on the coat-tails of leaders Manchester City.
Alan Pardew [Crystal Palace]
The final nominee is Alan Pardew after the experienced boss helped Palace to consecutive victories over Middlesbrough, Stoke and Sunderland to keep the Eagles soaring at the right end of the table.
So all five of the September nominees won all three of their Premier League games last month meaning this award is going to be extremely difficult to call. The voting will close on October 10 so we won’t have to wait too long before the winner is announced.
