news Fri 4 Nov 2016
Chelsea’s good form in October has been recognised with plenty of representation in the nominations for the Premier League monthly awards.
Antonio Conte has been shortlisted for the Manager of the Month Award. Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and N'Golo Kante are in the running for the EA SPORTS Player of the Month Award and Diego Costa's goal against Southampton last weekend is one of the nominations for Goal of the Month.

The full lists of nominations are:
