The Premier League has announced the nominees for the manager of the month award for February 2023.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta surprisingly did not make the shortlist meaning there will be a new winner this month.
The Premier League will announce the winner on Friday, March 10. Fans can vote for their preferred candidate here.
Erik ten Hag – Manchester United
The former Ajax boss has done a fantastic job at Old Trafford and revived a sleeping giant. He is the favourite for the award this month.
Man Utd won three and drew one of their four league games last month. Despite going a man down, United beat Crystal Palace 2-1 to earn their first league win of the month.
This win was after beating Nottingham Forest to reach the final of the Carabao Cup. They lifted the trophy by beating Newcastle United.
Man United also faced Leeds United twice in back-to-back games, drawing the first before winning the second at Elland Road. They also convincingly beat Leicester City.
Marco Silva – Fulham
Fulham boss Marco Silva brought the Cottagers up and is masterminding a brilliant campaign in London.
They opened the month with a 0-0 draw against their SW6 rivals before seeing off Nottingham Forest and Brighton & Hove Albion.
Fulham also drew with Wolverhampton Wanderers. They are up to seventh in the league and only six points away from a top-four spot.
They also secured their place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. They will face Manchester United later this month.
Antonio Conte – Tottenham Hotspur
The former Inter Milan manager was away recovering from a gallbladder operation. Cristian Stellini led the club for most of the month, but Antonio Conte has received the nomination.
They beat reigning Premier League champions Manchester City in a game where Harry Kane became the club’s all-time top goalscorer.
They lost their next league game against Leicester. Ironically, it was the only league game in which Conte was in the dugout during the month.
Spurs bounced back with 2-0 wins over London rivals West Ham United and Chelsea.
