The candidates to lift the award.
The first month has already passed in the Premier League season 2014/15 and after three games for each side the first Manager of the Month award is up for grabs.
Here are the four official candidates to claim the gong.
Mark Hughes, Stoke City
A home defeat to Aston Villa and a draw with 10-man Hull City was hardly an inspiring start for the Potteries, but it is what Hughes’ men achieved in their last outing that sees the Welshman on this list.
Against the odds Stoke travelled to the Etihad Stadium to be hosted by reigning champions Manchester City and came away with all three points.
