January's Barclays Manager of the Month nominees

Ronald Koeman

The Dutchman started January by guiding Everton to a 3-0 win over his former club Southampton, before another impressive Goodison Park victory followed as they beat Manchester City 4-0. A 1-0 away win at Crystal Palace completed a flawless month for the Toffees. 

Mauricio Pochettino

Spurs won three and drew two of their five Premier League matches in January, scoring four in victories over Watford and West Bromwich Albion either side of ending Chelsea's 13-match winning streak with a 2-0 success. Draws at Man City and Sunderland put Spurs up to second in the table. 

Mark Hughes

The Potters started January with a 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace before a 3-1 triumph at Sunderland. Hughes' side were denied a third successive win by Wayne Rooney's late free-kick in the 1-1 draw with Manchester United. 

Paul Clement

Clement enjoyed a fine start to life as Swansea head coach, earning a late 2-1 win at Crystal Palace. A 4-0 home defeat against Arsenal followed, but then they won 3-2 at Liverpool and beat Southampton 2-1 to climb out of the relegation zone.
