Mikel Arteta (Arsenal)

Arteta's unbeaten Arsenal have shown they are up for another title challenge after wins over Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace - the only team to beat the Eagles this season - and a draw with Fulham. Arteta is looking to win the award for a seventh time. 

Pep Guardiola (Man City)
P3 W3 D0 L0 GD+5

The 2022/23 Barclays Manager of the Season is the only nominee with a perfect record as Manchester City won all three August matches to begin their title defence in style. An opening-day victory at Burnley was followed by wins over Newcastle United and Sheffield United.

Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool)
P3 W2 D1 L0 GD+3

Klopp's Liverpool continued their unbeaten run from the end of last season to start with two wins and a draw, opening with a 1-1 statemate at Chelsea before beating AFC Bournemouth and Newcastle. Klopp's decision to bring on Darwin Nunez at St James' Park proved to be an inspired substitution. 

David Moyes (West Ham)
P3 W2 D1 L0 GD+4

Moyes led West Ham United to impressive 3-1 wins over Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion following a draw at Bournemouth in their opening fixture to end August in second place despite losing star midfielder Declan Rice in the summer.

Ange Postecoglou (Spurs)
P3 W2 D1 L0 GD+4

The first Australian to manage in the Premier League has quickly made his mark, transforming Tottenham Hotspur into an attacking team and doing so with wins over Manchester United and Bournemouth, and a draw at Brentford.
