Following Chelsea’s unbeaten start to the season, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been nominated for the Premier League Manager of the Month award for August.
Following Chelsea’s opening victories over Crystal Palace and Arsenal, Tuchel masterminded our excellent second-half display against Liverpool last weekend, recovering from the blow of losing Reece James to a red card right before the break to set the team up for a resilient rearguard effort to protect the 1-1 scoreline.
Tuchel previously won the managerial award back in March, becoming only the second German coach to do so after Jurgen Klopp.
The other managers nominated for the award are West Ham’s David Moyes, Nuno Espirito Santo of Tottenham and Everton’s Rafa Benitez. Spurs are the only side with a 100 per cent winning start following three successive 1-0 victories.
Voting is open now and closes at 12 noon on Monday 6 September.
