It’s Poch’s second consecutive nomination this season.

October is done and dusted, and the Premier League has released its list of nominees for monthly awards. Once again, Tottenham Hotspur is included in the fun as Mauricio Pochettino has been nominated for Barclay’s Premier League Manager of the Month.

Poch was nominated along with Burnley’s Sean Dyche (who could eventually be referred to as Everton’s Sean Dyche if the rumors are true), Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola, and Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger.

My guess is that Pep, the only nominated manager to manage his team to wins in all Premier League fixtures last month, is the likely winner, but y’know, stranger things have happened. This is the second straight MOTM nomination for Pochettino; he last won the award in April of last season.

The MOTM awards are partially influenced by an online poll, so if you’d like to go mash the button in favor of Poch, you can do so on the Premier League’s website.
