Conte, Hogberg, Son and Loris receive nominations for the Premier League awards in September

September was a good month if you were a Tottenham Hotspur Supporter, cheerleader, supporter. Despite their toughest match, away ManchesterPostponed due to the Queen’s death, Tottenham won all league matches and is still undefeated and within one point of league leaders (love) Arsenal. This strong month led to league award nominations for Antonio Conte, Pierre-Emile Hojberg, Hugo Lloris and Son Heung-min.

Let’s start with Sony. You all saw this coming, right? Jr., who broke the scoring duck in a stunning fashion last weekend against Leicester CityTwo of his goals were nominated for the Premier League Goal of the Month for September. And yes, they are these two long-range prisoners. Here are some of the highlights in case you happen to have spontaneous memory loss or you just want to watch it again.

Were we surprised by this? No we are not. Sonny’s first two goals were amazing, walking into the corner from the distance were incredible for the spectators as well as a deep recovery. After six league games in which he failed to break the mark, the joint 2021-22 Golden Boot winner announced his return to scoring ways in a certain way, and it wasn’t too soon.

The other nominees for the award are Brentford’s Evan Toni, who also received two goal-against nominations. LeedsBournemouth’s Philip Billing against Nottingham Forest, Fulham’s Alexander Mitrovic for a hairball shot against Tottenham, Alexis McAllister of Brighton in a free kick against Leicester, and Joao Balinha of Fulham for another long shot against Forest.

I’m biased, but none of those are close to Son’s second goal (except maybe Mitrovic, but this is a Spurs blog). You can watch all of them On the English Premier League website.

Elsewhere, Antonio Conte secured his second consecutive Premier League Coach of the Month nomination for September, this time as the favorite after Tottenham won their two matches this month by +5 goals. Competition Manchester UnitedHis new coach is Eric Ten Hag who also went 2-0 with +3 GD, and Bournemouth’s Gary O’Neill, who went 1-1 in September.

Pierre-Emile “General Ho” Hogberg also earned a nomination – this time for the Premier League Player of the Year award after he scored a goal and assist in both Spurs’ league matches in September. He is facing Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne and Dean Bournemouth, EvertonAlex Iwobi, Aston VillaJacob Ramsey and Marcus Rashford, Manchester United player.

Finally Hugo Lloris saved an incredible number of balls this month, but the candidate who secured his Save of the Month nomination in September was his brilliant stop against Fulham. I’m not sure it’s enough to prevent Jordan Pickford from taking the award, as Pickford has two nominations this month.

Of all the nominees, I’d say Conte is the most likely to lift a trophy when the awards are announced in a week or so, but who knows – maybe it’ll be a clean Spurs campaign for September. It was relatively unusual for Spurs to have a candidate in every category. It would be very stylish if that happened!
