Arsene Wenger has been nominated for the November Manager of the Month award.
Wenger is up for the honour after winning three out of four of his Premier League matches in November. According to the Evening Standard, he’s up against Chelsea’s Antonio Conte, Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp, Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola and Burnley’s Sean Dyche.
November started poorly for Arsenal as they were handily beaten 3-1 by Manchester City. However, that was followed by three impressive wins against Tottenham, Burnley and Huddersfield.
Wenger is unlikely to win the award as Guardiola’s City won all four of their November fixtures. They defeated Arsenal, Leicester, Huddersfield and Southampton to extend a lengthy winning streak going back to August.
Should Guardiola win the award, he’ll repeat Antonio Conte’s feat of winning it three months in a row. Chelsea beat Manchester United, West Brom and Swansea during their November run, while Liverpool stuck 10 goals past West Ham, Southampton and Stoke.
Burnley continued their highly impressive start to the season with three wins in November. Their one defeat came at the hands at Arsenal and a last minute Alexis Sanchez penalty.
