Conte, Hojbjerg, Son, Lloris pick up September Premier League monthly award nominations

September used to be a excellent month should you have been a Tottenham Hotspur supporter. Although their hardest fit, away at Manchester City, used to be postponed because of the dying of the Queen, Spurs received all in their league fits and are nonetheless undefeated and inside of some extent of league-leading (ugh) Arsenal. That sturdy month has resulted in league award nominations for Antonio Conte, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Hugo Lloris, and Son-Heung-Min.

Let’s get started with Sonny. You all noticed this coming, proper? Son, who broke his scoring duck in impressive style final weekend towards Leicester City, has had two of his targets nominated for Premier League Goal of the Month for September. And sure, it’s the ones two long-range bangers. Here are highlights in the event you’ve spontaneously advanced amnesia or simply need to watch them once more.

Are we shocked by way of this? No, we aren’t. Sonny’s first two targets have been stunners, curlers into the nook from lengthy fluctuate that have been each implausible to look at and in addition deeply cathartic. After six league fits wherein he didn’t get off the mark, the 2021-22 joint Golden Boot winner introduced his go back to scoring techniques in emphatic style, and none too quickly.

The different nominees for the award are Brentford’s Ivan Toney who additionally had two objective nominations each towards Leeds, Bournemouth’s Philip Billing towards Nottingham Forest, Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic for his roller towards Spurs, Brighton’s Alexis MacAllister for a loose kick blast towards Leicester, and Fulham’s Joao Palinha for some other lengthy shot towards Forest.

I’m biased, however none of the ones are anyplace close to as excellent as Son’s 2d objective (except for possibly Mitrovic, however shhh it is a Tottenham weblog). You can watch they all at the Premier League’s web site.

Elsewhere, Antonio Conte picked up his 2d consecutive Premier League Manager of the Month nomination for September, and this time he’s the favourite after Spurs received either one of their fits this month with a +5 objective differential. His pageant is Manchester United’s new boss Erik Ten Hag who additionally went 2-0 with a +3 GD, and Bournemouth’s Gary O’Neill, who went 1-1 in September.

Pierre-Emile “General Ho” Hojbjerg additionally picked up a nomination — this time for Premier League Player of the Month after choosing up a objective and an help in either one of Spurs’ league fits in September. He’s up towards Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, Bournemouth’s Billing, Everton’s Alex Iwobi, Aston Villa’s Jacob Ramsey, and Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford.

Finally, Hugo Lloris has had plenty of lovely implausible saves this month, however the person who were given him a nomination for Save of the Month in September used to be his exceptional forestall towards Fulham. I’m now not certain it’s sufficient to prevent Jordan Pickford from taking house the award, alternatively, as Pickford had two nominations this month.

Out of all of the nominees, I’d say that Conte is the perhaps to be lifting a trophy when the awards are introduced in every week or so, however who is aware of — possibly it’ll be a Spurs blank sweep for September. It’s been fairly peculiar that Spurs have had a nominee in each class. Would be lovely neat if that occurs!
