Wenger and Conte nominated for Premier League manager of the month awardArsenal boss Arsene Wenger and Chelsea manager Antonio Conte are among the nominees for Premier League Manager of the Month for November.

The London duo are joined by Burnley’s Sean Dyche, Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp, Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola and Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho on the six strong shortlist.

Chelsea boss Conte was one of three nominees to end the month with an unbeaten record, claiming three wins and a draw away to Liverpool.

Arsenal manager Wenger was unable to go the calendar month without defeat and started November in frustrating fashion with a 3-1 defeat away to Guardiola’s City. However the Gunners rallied in impressive fashion, beating Tottenham in the north London derby and following it with another two wins.

Guardiola is likely to be the favourite for the prize as the only manager to win all four of his games that month. The City boss won the award in September and October and would follow in the footsteps of Conte last season if he claimed his third straight gong when the winner is announced on December 15.
