David Moyes shortlisted for Premier League Barclays Manager of the Month

David Moyes celebrates at Tottenham


David Moyes has been shortlisted for the Premier League’s Barclays Manager of the Month award for October.

Moyes led West Ham United through a difficult-looking fixture list that featured four of last season’s top six, collecting five points in the process.

Under the Scot, the Hammers defeated Leicester City 3-0, drew 3-3 and 1-1 with Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City respectively, and were narrow 2-1 losers at champions Liverpool.

The 57-year-old has won ten Premier League Manager of the Month awards during his successful career, ranking him third behind only Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger.

October kicked-off with a superb win at King Power Stadium, where West Ham produced a fine all-round performance that featured well-taken goals from Michail Antonio, Pablo Fornals and Jarrod Bowen and a first Premier League clean sheet of the 2020/21 campaign.

Even more impressively, Moyes masterminded the comprehensive victory over the Foxes from home, where he was self-isolating following a positive COVID-19 test in September.

He returned to the dugout at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, where his second-half substitutions sparked an historic comeback. Three goals in the final nine minutes, capped by Manuel Lanzini’s last-minute strike, saw the Irons secure a dramatic point in north London.

The Hammers made it four top-flight games without defeat with another impressive display against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City at London Stadium.

Antonio was on target again during a superb first-half performance, before the defence and goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski took centre-stage after the break to secure a creditable point.

And Moyes’ side went close to extending that unbeaten run to five at Anfield, where the Irons took a first-half lead through Fornals’ goal and were only denied a draw by a controversial Mohamed Salah penalty and Diogo Jota’s late winner.
