AFCB: Eddie Howe named Manager of the Month

Eddie Howe has been named the Barclays Manager of the Month – at 39, the youngest recipient of the award since 2014.

AFC Bournemouth’s enjoy an unbeaten Premier League run in March.

The Cherries won two and drew one of their three matches to move to 11th in the table. Yesterday, they kept a clean sheet at Southampton to preserve their unbeaten record.

The 1-1 draw at Manchester United was a March highlight; they also enjoyed a 3-2 home win against West Ham United then ended an eight-match winless run for the Cherries, who rounded off the month with a 2-0 victory over Swansea City, securing back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time since March 2016.

“It feels really good,” said Howe. “It was such an important month for us.

“The fact we were able to pick up seven points and go unbeaten means everything to us at this moment.”

Howe was selected by a combination of votes from a panel of experts and the public, beating five other contenders: Crystal Palace’s Sam Allardyce, Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, Tottenham Hotspur’s Mauricio Pochettino and Craig Shakespeare, of Leicester City.
