Tuchel, Christensen, Mount nominated for Premier League monthly awards

Manager, player and goal of the month


For the second consecutive month, Thomas Tuchel has been nominated for the Premier League’s Manager of the Month award. Considering that he’s yet to lose a game since taking over at the end of January — 14 and counting, and not just in the league but in all competitions — that’s certainly a fair reward.

In March, which is over as far as Premier League matches are concerned, Tuchel collected two wins against Merseyside teams, as well as a draw against Leeds United.

Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers and Manchester United’s Ole Gunnar Solksjaer can boast identical records for the month, while Brighton’s Graham Potter is also nominated after winning two out of their three games in March. You can help Tuchel win the award by voting for him here.

A central (ed.note: literally!) piece to Chelsea’s success under Tuchel has been defender Andreas Christensen, who was forced into action after Thiago Silva got injured, and has hardly put a step wrong since in anchoring the three-man defensive line.

In recognition, he’s been nominated for Player of the Month, alongside Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho, Tottenham’s Harry Kane, West Ham’s Jesse Lingard, Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez, Leeds United’s Illan Meslier, Manchester United’s Luke Shaw and Brighton’s Leandro Trossard.

You should vote for Andreas here.

Last but not least, Mason Mount has also been nominated, thanks to his fantastic strike against Liverpool, which was the only goal scored in our 1-0 win at Anfield.

Mount’s goal goes up against strikes from Leicester City’s Iheanacho, Southampton’s Che Adams, Tottenham’s Harry Kane, Burnley’s Dwight McNeil, Tottenham’s Erik Lamela, Brighton’s Leandro Trossard and West Ham’s Jesse Lingard.

You can also help Mason by voting for his goal here.

(Ed.note: if Lamela’s rabona doesn’t win, they should just cancel this award.)
