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 has gained recognition, though, as Tottenham, Bournemouth, and Manchester United all had successful seasons.
Spurs under Conte led the Premier League in goals scored in September with eight, six of which came in the most recent rout of Leicester.
O’Neil has done wonders for a Bournemouth team that Scott Parker fired after they lost 9-0 to Liverpool. The former West Ham midfielder oversaw a 1-1 draw at Newcastle and a 3-2 victory against Nottingham Forest after they had trailed 2-0.
After a rocky beginning, Ten Hag has also presided over some notable improvements at United in recent weeks. Prior to ending Arsenal’s undefeated start to the season with a 3-1 victory at Old Trafford, Leicester was defeated.
Mikel Arteta, who led the Gunners to five victories in their first five games while also tallying 13 goals, was given the honour for August.
The nominees for the Premier League Player of the Month award are chosen from a little larger pool of candidates than the MOTM shortlist, which is quite condensed.
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.
Candidates for the Premier League Player of the Month include Marcus Rashford and Kevin De Bruyne.
The remaining players on the shortlist are Philip Billing of Bournemouth, Alex Iwobi of Everton, and Jacob Ramsey of Aston Villa.
