Benítez nominated for manager of the month
Written by Dan King
Rafa Benítez has been nominated for the Premier League manager of the month award for November.
United won all three of their games during the month, beating Watford, AFC Bournemouth and Burnley to climb up the table.
And that 100 per cent record in November was all the more remarkable considering Newcastle hadn't won a match all season until that point.
Joining Benítez on the shortlist are Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola and Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino, whose sides both won all three games, as well as Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp, Huddersfield's David Wagner and Everton's Marco Silva, who each led their respective teams to two wins and a draw.
Voting is now open here. The winner will be announced on Friday, December 14th.
