AFC Bournemouth manager tops shortlist for January to win honour for second time

Eddie Howe has been named the Barclays Manager of the Month for January.

He led AFC Bournemouth to an unbeaten month, beating Arsenal and Chelsea while securing draws at Brighton & Hove Albion and West Ham United.

The Cherries' 3-0 win at Stamford Bridge on 31 January equalled their best unbeaten run in the Premier League of six matches, which was extended to seven in February.

"It's a nice feeling. I realise how big January was for us," he said. "The Christmas period leading into the New Year is a big moment of a season and we've had a really good run.

"From the start of the month we were in a very difficult position. It looks slightly better but still got a lot more work to do."

Howe topped a seven-man shortlist also including Carlos Carvalhal, Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, Jose Mourinho, David Moyes and Mauricio Pochettino.

The winner was selected by a combination of votes from a panel of experts and the public.

It is the second time the 40-year-old has won the award, after doing so in March 2017.
