Man United boss Solskjaer named on shortlist for Premier League manager of the month

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been named on a four-man shortlist for the Premier League March manager of the month award.

The Manchester United boss has been shortlisted alongside Brighton’s Graham Potter, Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers and Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel.

United didn’t concede a league goal in March, drawing to Crystal Palace before important victories over Manchester City and West Ham to consolidate second place.

The Reds had a sour end to the month with the FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Leicester, but that is not considered in this league award.

Solskjaer is a strong contender after ending City’s winning run under Pep Guardiola at the Etihad but the Norwegian faces strong competition.

Rodgers’ Leicester side thrashed Sheffield United 5-0 and claimed seven points from a possible nine.

Chelsea are still unbeaten under Tuchel, with the German boss transforming his talented side and moving the into a top four position.

Potter also secured two crucial victories in Brighton’s bid for survival.

Supporters can vote on the official Premier League website until March 29 and those votes will be combined with a panel of experts to decide the outcome.
