Maurizio Sarri has been nominated for the Barclays Manager of the Month award for December after guiding the Blues to five Premier League victories throughout the month, and you can vote for him to win.
Among those wins was the 2-0 success over Manchester City at Stamford Bridge, secured courtesy of goals from N’Golo Kante and David Luiz, the first time Pep Guardiola’s side had experienced a Premier League defeat this season.
The Blues beat Fulham 2-0 in our first game in December, before going on to record three victories away from home later in the month, against Brighton, Watford and Crystal Palace.
This is the third occasion on which Sarri has been shortlisted for the award, with earlier nominations in both August and October.

Nuno Espirito Santo - Wolverhampton Wanderers
