The nominees for the October Manager and Player of the Month are in – and Wolves have been overlooked in both categories.

Despite not losing a game last month, there is sadly no Molineux representation for the Premier League awards this time around.

The managers up for the latest gong are Jurgen Klopp, Thomas Tuchel, David Moyes and Patrick Vieira.

Chelsea and Liverpool are first and second in the league and are both looking very strong right now.

West Ham are also going well and sit fourth. And Crystal Palace have had some good recent results under Vieira, after a slow start.

Bruno Lage is perhaps a little unlucky not to be acknowledged.

He oversaw two victories and one draw last month.

Monday’s win over Everton fell on November 1, which has perhaps counted against him in the end.


In terms of the Player of the Month, it’s difficult to look past Mo Salah, who has been in rich goalscoring form.

Youri Tielemans, Ben Chilwell, Maxwell Cornet, Tino Livramento, Declan Rice, Phil Foden and Aaron Ramsdale all join the Egyptian on the list.

Wolves should have had representation

There are some Wolves players who are slightly unlucky not to be nominated.

For instance, Hwang Hee-chan, 25, scored three goals in October and has been a breath of fresh air.

Jose Sa has also been in inspired form between the sticks. In front of him, Max Kilman has continued to shine on the right of a back three.

It is a shame that there wasn’t any acknowledgment this time around. So long as the team keep picking up points and climbing the table though, people will perhaps start to take a bit more notice.

For now, Wolves are quietly going about their business and that’s the main thing.
