Pep Guardiola has been nominated for December’s Premier League Manager of the Month award.

The City boss was awarded the prize in November and is in the running once again over overseeing a superb end to 2021.

City enjoyed a magnificent 100 percent Premier League record last month, winning all seven of our domestic matches to open up an eight-point lead at the top of the table.

The month got underway with a fine 2-1 win away at Aston Villa and City continued in a similarly impressive vein throughout the rest of December.

We followed that Villa Park victory up with a 3-1 success at Watford, and then secured a 1-0 home win over Wolves before securing a memorable 7-0 Etihad triumph against Leeds.

City then racked up a 4-0 success on the road at Newcastle United before despatching Leicester 6-3 in a memorable Boxing Day encounter.

And a magnificent December was then rounded off in winning fashion with a 1-0 success away at Brentford.

Mikel Arteta of Arsenal, Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp and Tottenham boss Antonio Conte have also been short-listed.

You can cast your vote now! The winner will be announced at 12:00 on Friday 14 January.
