Southampton trio Ralph Hasenhüttl, James Ward-Prowse and Yan Valery have all been nominated by the Premier League for awards in March.

Hasenhüttl is in the running for Manager of the Month for the second time, having previously been nominated in January.

Saints took six points from their three fixtures in March, including back-to-back wins over Tottenham and Brighton.

The boss faces competition from title contenders Pep Guardiola and Jürgen Klopp, who were both unbeaten in the month, as well as Everton’s Marco Silva and new Leicester chief Brendan Rodgers, who each lost once in four games.

VOTE FOR HASENHÜTTL

Red-hot midfielder James Ward-Prowse is up for two awards, including Player of the Month for the second time this season.

The 24-year-old scored two stunning free-kicks in successive matches – the second proving to be the match-winner against Spurs.

His performances earned a recall to the England squad, and his second cap for the Three Lions duly followed in the recent Euro 2020 qualifier against Montenegro. 

Joining Ward-Prowse on the shortlist is Seamus Coleman, Sadio Mané, Andrew Robertson, Bernardo Silva and Jamie Vardy.

VOTE FOR WARD-PROWSE

Saints’ longest-serving player is joined by promising youngster Valery among the nominations for the Goal of the Month accolade.

Ward-Prowse and Valery have both earned recognition for their spectacular strikes against Manchester United, ironically the only game in March the team did not win.

The 20-year-old Frenchman opened the scoring at Old Trafford with his first senior goal – a bolt from the blue that flew past David De Gea from long range to give Saints the lead.

Having fallen behind after half-time, Ward-Prowse’s brilliant free-kick levelled the scores, earning himself a spot on the shortlist in the process.

United eventually won the match 3-2, with Andreas Pereira’s curling shot also featuring among the nominations, along with notable strikes from Diogo Jota, Anthony Knockaert, Eden Hazard, Karlan Grant and Matt Ritchie.
