NEWCASTLE United manager Eddie Howe has been nominated for the Premier League Manager of the Month award for April. 

Howe managed to steer the Magpies to four wins out of six games against Wolves, Leicester City, Norwich City and Crystal Palace whilst suffering defeats to Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.

The Newcastle boss is up for the award alongside Brentford's Thomas Frank, Manchester City's Pep Guardiola, Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp and Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira. 

Based on results in April, Newcastle were able to secure Premier League safety for another season.
