West Ham United manager David Moyes has been shortlisted for the Premier League’s Barclays Manager of the Season award after guiding the Hammers to a sixth place finish in the 2020/21 season.

The Hammers were just two points outside of the top four and earned qualification for the UEFA Europa League.

The season was West Ham’s best in the top flight as Moyes’ team amassed their record points total in the division (65), their best ever goal difference (+15), their highest number of overall wins (19) and number of away victories (nine).

Moyes, who was nominated for four separate Barclays Manager of the Month awards during the season, has been named LMA Manager of the Year on three occasions, and will hope to add his first Premier League Manager of the Season award to his list of achievements

He has also won ten Premier League Manager of the Month awards during his career, ranking him third behind only Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger.

Moyes is one of five managers shortlisted, alongside Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa, who guided the Yorkshire side to a top ten finish in their first season back in the top flight.

Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola is in the running too after winning yet another Premier League title, while Leicester City’s Brendan Rodgers and Manchester United’s Ole Gunnar Solskjær have also been nominated.

An online public vote, which concludes on the evening on Thursday June 3, will also be combined with the opinions of a panel of experts before the winning candidate is announced.
