The shortlist of candidates for the Premier League’s Manager of the Month award for September includes Antonio Conte, Gary O’Neil, and Erik ten Hag.
Due to circumstances surrounding the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, there was less top-flight football this month, with each manager only in control of two games.
The trio, however, have been recognised as Tottenham, Bournemouth and Manchester United all enjoyed fruitful results.
While the MOTM shortlist is quite small, the finalists for the Premier League Player of the Month award are a little longer.
Among the six players, Kevin De Bruyne is the front-runner because he assisted on three of Manchester City’s four goals in September. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is nominated for a goal and an assist, while Marcus Rashford is selected for being involved in a league-high four goals.
The remaining players on the shortlist are Philip Billing of Bournemouth, Alex Iwobi of Everton, and Jacob Ramsey of Aston Villa.
