Pardew Nominated For August Award

10 September 2015

Eagles manager Alan Pardew has been recognised for his achievements in the early stages of this Premier League season, receiving a nomination for the top flight's Manager of the Month award for August.

Currently sitting second in the table, Palace have shot out of the blocks this term, which has been in direct contrast to the starts made by the Eagles in the two previous seasons in the Premier League.

An opening day win away to Norwich City was followed by a narrow defeat - and promising performance - at home to Arsenal, before Palace strung together back-to-back 2-1 victories over Aston Villa in SE25 and away to the reigning champions Chelsea. The Eagles also enjoyed success in their opening Capital One Cup fixture, beating Shrewsbury Town 4-1 after extra time at Selhurst Park.

Alan Pardew is up against Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini, who is currently enjoying the spot at the top of the Premier League pile ahead of their visit to Selhurst Park on Saturday. Swansea City's Garry Monk and new Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri make up the four man shortlist for the August award.

The Eagles boss is yet to win the Manager of the Month award at Palace, but has picked it up three times before in his career (February 2006, November 2013 and November 2014), as well as lifting the Premier League's Manager of the Season trophy in 2011-12, winning the LMA Manager of the Year gong in the same season.
