Premier League manager of the month nominees for February revealed

The Premier League has announced the nominees for the February Manager of the Month award, with Mikel Arteta, Pep Guardiola and Erik ten Hag in the running for the coveted honour.

Arteta’s Arsenal enjoyed a remarkable run of form in February, extending their perfect 2024 record with four wins from four games, including an exceptional 3-1 success over Liverpool that reaffirmed their status as title contenders.

The Gunners were imperious in the final third, netting 3+ goals across their four games, racking up 18 in total while boasting the joint-best defence after shipping in just two goals against Liverpool and Newcastle United.

Not even Arteta’s mentor Guardiola could replicate Arsenal’s exceptional record as Manchester City picked up four wins from their five Premier League fixtures in February (D1).

While the Cityzens were not at their free-scoring best, returning just eight goals, their defence was near impenetrable, with only London duo Brentford and Chelsea breaching their rearguard.

The only blemish on City’s near-perfect February record came in the 1-1 draw against Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium. But Guardiola’s side remain hot on the heels of their title rivals Liverpool.

While Manchester United failed to replicate the unbeaten run of their next-door neighbours, manager Erik ten Hag rounds off the three-man shortlist for the prestigious accolade.

The Dutchman and his fiery Red Devils have endured a topsy-turvy campaign, but they had a month to remember after winning four of their five fixtures in February.

Picking up four consecutive victories, including a crucial 2-1 win over top-four rivals Aston Villa, put United back in contention for a Champions League slot.

However, after back-to-back 2-1 wins over Villa and Luton Town, Ten Hag’s troops closed out the month with a shock defeat to Fulham at Old Trafford by an identical scoreline.
