Jürgen Klopp nominated for January Premier League award

Jürgen Klopp has been shortlisted for the Premier League’s Manager of the Month award for January.

The boss oversaw three wins and one defeat for the Reds in the top-flight at the start of the new calendar year.

Burnley were defeated 2-1 on January 1 in dramatic circumstances at Turf Moor, with Ragnar Klavan netting a last-gasp winner.

That was followed up with a pulsating 4-3 victory over Manchester City at Anfield as Liverpool became the first – and so far only – team to defeat the league leaders this term.

A disappointing 1-0 reversal at Swansea City followed, but the Reds bounced back in style with a 3-0 success at Huddersfield Town.

Klopp is on a seven-man shortlist that also includes Carlos Carvalhal (Swansea), Pep Guardiola (Man City), Eddie Howe (Bournemouth), Jose Mourinho (Manchester United), David Moyes (West Ham United) and Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham Hotspur).
