Stoke City manager Mark Hughes nominated for Premier League Manager of the Month


Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has been nominated for the Barclays Premier League Manager of the Month award for October.

The Potters went undefeated in October with three wins and one draw.

Their draw came right at the start of the month when they visited Old Trafford.

United’s Anthony Martial opened the scoring for the hosts but Welshman Joe Allen levelled things up with less than 10 minutes to go.

Three consecutive wins followed for Hughes’ men against Sunderland, Hull City and Swansea City.

Nominated alongside the Stoke boss for the award are Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, Chelsea’s Antonio Conte and Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger.

The Reds and the Gooners had the exact same results as Stoke during October with Chelsea being the only nominee’s to win all four of their games.

Voting for the award ends at 23:59 on Monday, November 7 with the winning manager being announced on Friday, November 18, after the international break.

Earlier this week, Allen, who scored three goals in four games, lost out on the Player of the Month award with Belgium international Eden Hazard picking up the prize instead.

However, the 26-year-old midfielder has also been nominated for the EA Sports Player of the Month. Should he win that award, he will be a given a special in form purple card on their game FIFA 17 which can be won by completing a specific squad builder challenge.

Swiss international Xherdan Shaqiri is also up for an award after he was nominated for the Carling Goal of the Month for his strike against Hull City.
