The Black Cats beat Bournemouth and Hull City in November to put an end to their 10-game winless start to the season and propel Sunderland to within three points of safety.

Moyes has been nominated alongside Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.

Only two managers have won more Barclays Manager of the Month awards than Moyes – Sir Alex Ferguson (27) and Arsene Wenger (15) – with the Scotsman collecting the accolade on ten occasions.
