Manuel Pellegrini has been nominated for the Barclays Manager of the Month for December award.

The Chilean boss led his side to a record five Premier League wins inside a calendar month last month, a sequence that took the Hammers into the top half of the table for the first time this season.

However Pellegrini faces stiff competition from the likes of Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri and Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino (both also with five wins from seven) and Jurgen Klopp, who led Liverpool to wins in all seven of their December fixtures.

The five nominees are as follows:

Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool): P7 W7 D0 L0

Manuel Pellegrini (West Ham Utd): P7 W5 D0 L2

Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham): P7 W5 D0 L2

Nuno Espirito Santo (Wolves): P6 W4 D1 L1

Maurizio Sarri (Chelsea): P7 W5 D0 L2

Fans can vote for their favourite before 23:59 GMT on 7 January at the Premier League's website. Public votes will be combined with those of a panel of football experts to decide the winner, who will be announced on 11 January.
