Pep Guardiola has been nominated for the Barclays Manager of the Month award for April.

The City boss is one of five candidates, but the only nominee to have a 100% record, with the Blues having won all five matches last month.

Victories over Liverpool, Southampton, Leicester, Arsenal, and Fulham helped propel City to the top of the Premier League.

But Pep faces stiff competition for the coveted prize.

Aston Villa’s Unai Emery, Bournemouth’s Gary O’Neil, Newcastle United’s Eddie Howe and veteran Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson are also in the poll.

The vote is open now and the winner will be announced on Friday 12 May at noon.
