Phelan joins Guardiola, Mourinho, Conte in manager nominations

The four nominations for the Barclays Premier League Manager of the Month award have been named.

Table-topping Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is one of four candidates put forward for the August award after guiding his new club to three wins in the opening month of the campaign.

Also nominated for the prize is Chelsea's Antonio Conte, who has enjoyed three victories from his first three Premier League matches, and Manchester United's Jose Mourinho who has a similar record to the aforementioned newcomers.

Surprise packets Hull City are represented by Mike Phelan who has led the Tigers to a pair of triumphs in his caretaker role that is quite likely to become permanent.

Fans can vote for their manager of the month via Twitter - see below - and have until 11:59pm BST on September 5 to lodge.
