Darren Moore, Sam Allardyce, Pep Guardiola, Roy Hodgson and Jose Mourinho have been nominated for April’s Premier League Manager of the Month award.
West Brom appear destined for the Championship next season as they sit 20th in the table with two matches remaining, five points adrift of safety.
But Moore can be proud of his efforts since becoming caretaker manager at The Hawthorns and earns a manager of the month nomination after two wins and draws in April, with West Brom scoring ten and conceding just four.
Hodgson has guided Crystal Palace to 11th in the table after two wins and two draws in April, during which time the Eagles scored 10 and conceded just four. They sit six points above the relegation zone with Premier League practically assured for next season.
Guardiola's Manchester City wrapped up the title in April when Manchester United were upset by West Brom at Old Trafford. They took nine points from four matches during the month, while scoring 14 times and conceding five.
Mourinho's United did stumble against West Brom but did manage a morale-boosting victory over City in the Manchester derby at the start of the month and victories over Bournemouth and Arsenal have them in pole position to finish second in the table.
Everton are up to eighth in the table after Allardyce guided them to wins over Huddersfield and Newcastle and draws against Swansea and Liverpool.The seven nominees for Premier League player of the month for April are Manchester United's Paul Pogba, Tottenham's Christian Eriksen, Arsenal's Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, Everton's Jordan Pickford, Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha, West Brom's Jake Livermore and Manchester City's Raheem Sterling.
