For the second time this season, Manchester United manager Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, has been nominated for the Premier League manager of the month award.

The Norwegian has led United to two resounding victories since the restart of the season in mid-June, including a 3-0 thumping of Sheffield United at Old Trafford and another 3-0 win away at Brighton.

Solskjaer has been nominated alongside Chelsea manager Frank Lampard, whose side has been equally decent, Nuno Esprito Santo of Wolves and Newcastle manager, Steve Bruce.

The last time Olé was nominated for manager of the month was back in February, but he lost it to Burnley’s Sean Dyche.

It would be nice to see the former striker win it again, after previously winning it in January 2019.
