Arsenal trio of Arsène Wenger, Theo Walcott and Granit Xhaka have been nominated for a hat-trick of awards following a stellar September.
As a result of Arsenal’s fine Premier League form, Wenger has been shortlisted for the Manager of the Month award, and Walcott for the Player of the Month award while Granit Xhaka’s long-range strike against Hull City has been named as one of eight contenders for the Carling Goal of the Month award.
Both the Manager of the Month award and the Player of the Month award is voted for by a combination of the public via premierleague.com, a panel of Premier League legends and current club captains. The public vote will count for 10 per cent of the total.
Arsenal won five and drew one of their six games in all competitions over the course of the month, scoring 16 goals in the process.
Wenger is up against Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola, Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp, Crystal Palace’s Alan Pardew and Mauricio Pochettino of Tottenham.
Walcott, meanwhile, is shortlisted alongside Kevin de Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku, Adam Lallana and Son Heung-Min.a href=
