Premier League Manager of the Month nonimees for October revealed

Premier League Manager of the Month nonimees for October revealed

The Premier League has revealed the nominees for October’s Manager of the Month award, with four tacticians set to go head-to-head for the prestigious accolade.

Having won the award for the last two months, Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou will be eyeing the prize for a third successive time.

The Australian could become the first manager in Premier League history to claim the award for each of his first three months after leading his side to a three-match winning streak in October.

Tottenham survived a trip to Luton Town on the eve of the international break, seeing out a 1-0 win after going down to ten men on the stroke of half-time.

They subsequently emerged victorious from consecutive London derby fixtures, beating Fulham 2-0 before seeing off the challenge from Crystal Palace in a 2-1 win.

Despite Tottenham’s form, Postecoglou faces a concrete battle for the award, with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp also in contention for the prize.

The Reds saw out October with a near-perfect record, drawing 2-2 against Brighton & Hove Albion on the stroke of the international break.

The result at the Amex Stadium was followed by consecutive victories at Anfield, including a 2-0 win against Everton in the Merseyside derby and the 3-0 demolition of Nottingham Forest.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta was also nominated after picking up two wins from three October fixtures, including a historic victory over Manchester City.

After ending a run of 12 successive Premier League defeats against Man City with a 1-0 win at the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal fought back to record a 2-2 draw against Chelsea in the London derby.

They rounded off the month in style, comprehensively thrashing relegation contenders Sheffield United 5-0 in front of the club faithful.

Unai Emery completes the four-man shortlist after leading Aston Villa to a 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers before dispatching West Ham United in a 4-1 win.

The high-flying Villans saw off October with a comprehensive victory over Premier League newcomers Luton Town, running out 3-1 winners at Villa Park.
