Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola up for Premier League Manager award

Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, Antonio Conte and Mike Phelan are nominated for the Premier League Manager of the Month award for August.


Manchester United boss Mourinho, Manchester City manager Guardiola and Chelsea’s Conte have all made perfect starts to the season at their new clubs winning three games out of three.

At least one of those records will come to an end in the next round of fixtures when City travel to Old Trafford for the Manchester derby on Sep. 10.

Phelan, meanwhile, the caretaker manager at Hull City, has won two games, including an unexpected victory against champions Leicester City and a 2-0 win at Swansea, before narrowly losing a third, 1-0 to United.

The Tigers’ feat is all the more impressive considering they started the campaign with just 13 fit senior players.

Each Premier League captain has a vote for who should win the award, alongside a panel made up of former footballers and managers with a decision set to be announced on Sept. 9.

Raheem Sterling, Eden Hazard, Antonio Valencia and Curtis Davies have been nominated for the Player of the Month award.
