Jurgen Klopp sublimated with Liverpool
Arsenal, Southampton, Newcastle and Liverpool all had excellent results in February. And according to the latest announcement from the Premier League Organizing Committee, each coach of these 4 teams has been shortlisted for the best award of the month.
Jurgen Klopp is the brightest candidate. He helped Liverpool win all 4 matches, ending the month with a goal difference of +11. They scored 12 goals, including 6 against Leeds United, and closed the gap with Manchester City to 6 points and had a match in hand.
Mikel Arteta had an equally excellent performance. The Gunners bolstered their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League with three wins, beating Wolves at home and away and another win over Brentford. Arsenal are only 2 points behind Man Utd and have played less than 3 matches.
Eddie Howe completely helped Newcastle United transform. He and this team won 3 victories in 4 matches, defeating direct rivals Everton and Brentford. It is likely that Newcastle United will successfully stay in the relegation zone.
Finally, Ralph Hasenhuttl led Southampton into the Premier League Top 10 in the past month, and had a particularly impressive 3-2 victory over Tottenham. They also played well in the 1-1 draw with Manchester United. The achievement of 10 points after 4 matches is clearly very good.
