The Premier League has revealed the nominations for the October Manager of the Month and Player of the Month Awards this morning.

Manager of the Month

With Arsenal currently sitting five points clear at the top of the table, it’s no surprise to see Arsene Wenger’s name on the managers shortlist. The Gunners were unbeaten in October, taking 7 points from a possible 9 in the league, which included wins over Norwich and Crystal Palace.

The Arsenal boss is up against his old foe, Jose Mourinho, with the Blues clawing back some ground on their London rivals after taking a maximum 9 points during the month, including a last gasp 2-1 win over Manchester City.

Also nominated are Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers who guided his side to two wins and a draw, and Mauricio Pochettino who continued his impressive start at Southampton with 7 points from 9 including an excellent point away at Manchester United.

Player of the Month

The player of the month is a hotly contested one with Liverpool strikers Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez going head-to-head for the award. Sturridge enjoyed an excellent month, scoring in all three games including a sublime chip against West Brom. Suarez was also in fine form, scoring 4 goals in 3 games with a devastating hat-trick against the Baggies the pick of his performances.

The Reds duo will be up against Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, Southampton’s Adam Lallana and Manchester City hitman Sergio Aguero – who was in stunning form last month, scoring 4 goals in 3 appearances including an excellent strike against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The winners will be announced by the Premier League on Friday. Who do you think should win? Leave your views below.

    Mourinho deseave it, cause he got all 9points, and eden hazard, also deseave it after coming as a sub to score against norwich and scoring a brace against cardiff, he is so technical when it comes to scoring.

    The only manager that deserve the award for Oct.is Jose Mourinho because he won all three matches with maximum 9 point. Though Wenger did pretty well but Mourinho is the man for the crown since result is what this award is all about. Suarez is the player of the month.
