Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, Unai Emery and Nuno Espirito Santo have been nominated for the Premier League’s Manager of the Month award for September.
Guardiola's Manchester City side were perfect in the Premier League in September with wins against Newcastle, Fulham, Cardiff and Brighton. They scored 12 times in their four matches, while conceding just once.
That run has helped City move top of the table, ahead of Liverpool on goal difference.
Liverpool will attempt to move back into first place on Sunday, when they host City at Anfield, live on Sky Sports.
Klopp's side won three of their four matches in September, beating Leicester, Tottenham and Southampton before drawing with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend.
After losing his opening two games of the season, Emery has guided Arsenal to fifth in the table with a run of five consecutive victories. The Gunners were perfect in September with wins over Cardiff, Newcastle, Everton and Watford.
Santo's Wolves are up to ninth in the table after going through September unbeaten. They beat West Ham, Burnley and Southampton and also earned a creditable draw at Old Trafford against Manchester United.
Eden Hazard, Raheem Sterling, James Maddison, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Alexandre Lacazette and Willy Boly are all nominated for the Premier League Player of the Month award.
Hazard was in fine form for Chelsea with five goals in four games, including a hat-trick against Cardiff.
Sterling found the net three times for City and also added two assists.
Maddison, who was called into the England squad for the first time this week, scored twice and added two assists for Leicester City.
Icelandic star Sigurdsson scored three times for Everton to further cement himself as a key member of Marco Silva's starting line-up.
Lacazette played a big part in Arsenal's perfect month, with goals against Cardiff and Everton and an assist against Newcastle.
Boly is the only defender among the six nominations. He is recognised for helping Wolves keep clean sheets against West Ham, Burnley and Southampton.
