Sarri shortlisted for Manager of the Month

Maurizio Sarri has been nominated for the Premier League Manager of the Month award after we continued our unbeaten run in October. 

The Blues have yet to lose under Sarri and in the third month of the season we recorded a pair of impressive away wins in the league, against Southampton and Burnley, and also struck a memorable last-minute equaliser to earn a point at home to Manchester United. 

It was also a month in which we displayed plenty of the quick and effective passing football Sarri wants from his team, with Alvaro Morata's goal at St Mary's a particular highlight coming as it did at the end of a 31-pass move. 

The award is decided by a combination of votes from a panel and fans, and you can vote for Sarri here.

- Sarri will be speaking to broadcasters and the press about this Sunday's game at 12.45pm today and you can watch it by clicking on Live Media Conferences.
