The 4 Nominees for February's Premier League Manager of the Month Award

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Mikel Arteta, Sean Dyche and Chris Wilder are the February nominees on a four-strong shortlist for the latest Premier League Manager of the Month award.

It means that for only the second time this season, the prize will not go to Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who has already scooped it in August, September, November, December and January.

Solskjaer, who was Manager of the Month in January 2019, lifted Manchester United out of their January funk and steered his team to three league games without defeat in February.

That included a third victory of the season against Chelsea and a comfortable 3-0 win over Watford. United also kept a clean sheet in each game they played.

Arteta’s ​Arsenal also had a strong month as the Spaniard put his stamp on the Gunners.

His team kept only their second and third clean sheets in the Premier League since Christmas in games against Burnley and Newcastle, while they also saw off a spirited Everton in a 3-2 win.

Sean Dyche

In a continuation of their January form, Dyche guided Burnley to an unbeaten month in February, making it four more games without a defeat.

The Clarets held Arsenal to a 0-0 draw, before back-to-back wins over Southampton and Bournemouth, and another 0-0 against ​Newcastle. Also registering three clean sheets, it has put Burnley firmly into Europa League contention for the second time in three years.

Wilder’s Sheffield United were also unbeaten in February, playing three times in the league.

February started with a win and a clean sheet against Crystal Palace, followed by a victory against Bournemouth and a draw against Brighton to underline their own European claim.
