The nominees for the Barclays Manager of the Month award for August 2023 have been unveiled. The prestigious accolade celebrates managerial excellence in the English Premier League.
Supporters have until Monday to cast their votes for their favourite among Mikel Arteta, Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, David Moyes and Ange Postecoglou.
Mikel Arteta – Arsenal
Arteta’s Arsenal side have come out of the gates strongly, signalling their intent for a title challenge this season after their battle with Manchester City last term.
The team boasts an unbeaten record in August, with notable victories over Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace and a draw against Fulham.
Arteta has previously clinched this award on six occasions and will be gunning for his seventh.
Pep Guardiola – Manchester City
Fresh from being crowned the 2022/23 Barclays Manager of the Season, Man City have once again asserted their dominance in the Premier League.
A flawless record in August, with wins over Burnley, Newcastle United and Sheffield United, they have started their title defence in style.
Jurgen Klopp – Liverpool
