Vote for Antonio Conte and Eden Hazard in August Premier League awards

New, comments

It's time to make like an Arsenal fan and go online and rock the vote.  If you care of course about these sorts of things that is.  If you don't, you may freely resume your daily YouTube cat video odyssey.

According to the Chelsea official website, this is the first time ever that fans are also allowed to vote for the Manager and Player of the Month awards.  Since I don't remember ever doing so, let's just take their word for it.  The fan vote will be combined with the vote from the experts panel as well as all the club captains' votes to determine the overall winner.

For Player of the Month, Eden Hazard will have to contend with fellow attackers Raheem Sterling and Antonio Valencia, as well as the big Hull Wall, Curtis Davies.  Davies has been immense in the first few games for the Tigers, but because he plays defense, he might as well just pack his things and go home and save us all some time.

The last Chelsea player to win this monthly away was Diego Costa after his first month in England in 2014.

The four-man shortlist for Manager of the Month also includes no surprises either, with the coaches for the three teams with a perfect record as well as Hull's (temporary?) manager Mike Phelan, who seems to have been a beneficiary of Sir Alex Fergusons' black magicks.

Chelsea haven't won this monthly award since The Interim One was named the winner in April 2013.

Polls close on Monday.  Vote now!
