Harry Maguire nominated for Premier League Player of the Month award

Manchester United defender Harry Maguire is among the nominees to be named Premier League Player of the Month for November, with Erik ten Hag in the running for the managers’ prize.

Maguire has enjoyed something of a resurgence in recent weeks, regaining his place in United’s starting lineup after appearing to be surplus to requirements before the season began.

With Lisandro Martinez injured and Raphael Varane out of favour, Maguire has started the Red Devils’ last 10 games in all competitions since being restored to their lineup for October’s dramatic 2-1 win over Brentford.

United won all three of their league games during the month of November, with Maguire impressing as they kept clean sheets in victories over Fulham, Luton Town and Everton to revive their hopes of a top-four finish.

Maguire is one of six players nominated for the award, also including Newcastle United’s Anthony Gordon, Luton goalkeeper Thomas Kaminski, Chelsea’s Raheem Sterling and Bournemouth winger Marcus Tavernier.

Manchester City wideman Jeremy Doku is also in the running after scoring one goal and adding four assists in three league appearances during November, also completing 21 dribbles during the month, 10 more than any other player in the competition.

Meanwhile, four bosses are up for the Manager of the Month prize, with Ten Hag among them after overseeing United’s steady rise up the table.

Luton’s Rob Edwards, Newcastle’s Eddie Howe and Bournemouth’s Andoni Iraola, who ended a winless start to his time with the Cherries by posting two victories in November, are the Dutchman’s competitors.

Tottenham’s Ange Postecoglou became the first manager to win the award in each of his first three months in the competition after overseeing Spurs’ 10-game unbeaten start to 2023-24, but his streak will end there with his team losing all three of their Premier League games this month.
