The five-man shortlist for the Barclays Premier League Manager of the Month award for April has been announced.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, who has led his side to three wins and four draws out of seven games, is included in the nominations, alongside Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, who won six from six as his Spurs side look to chase down Chelsea at the top of the Premier League.

Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare’s successes have been recognised, having taken 10 points out of a possible 18 in April, including an away win at West Brom, to steer the champions away from danger and up to the coveted 40-point mark.

Hull City head coach Marco Silva may have work to do in May to keep his side safe, but his record of three wins and a draw in six games in April means he makes the list, as they sit two points clear of Swansea in the drop zone with three vital games remaining.
