Eagles boss Alan Pardew is up for the Barclays Premier League Manager of the Month award for December, having seen his side go unbeaten throughout the final month of 2015!
Palace travelled to Everton at the start of December to grind out a 1-1 draw before hosting Southampton at Selhurst Park the week after, with Yohan Cabaye's strike settling it for the home side. Stoke City on December 19th saw Connor Wickham's first goal in red and blue followed by a late stunner from Chung-yong Lee, which earned the Eagles the three points at the Britannia.
Pardew then saw his side secure hard fought points away to Bournemouth on Boxing Day and at home to Swansea City two days later, with both fixtures ending goalless.
The gaffer is up against Watford's Quique Sanchez Flores, Arsenal's Arsene Wenger and Claudio Ranieri of high-flying Leicester City. Good luck Alan!
