EPL By: Ambrose Udeme | 08/05/2018

West Bromwich Albion boss Darren Moore has been named the Barclays Manager of the Month after overseeing Albion’s unbeaten Premier League run in April.

The Baggies beat Manchester United and Newcastle on the road and recorded home draws against Swansea and Liverpool to collect eight points.

All of this before beginning May with Saturday’s dramatic 1-0 win over Tottenham at The Hawthorns - a result which took Albion off the foot of the table for the first time since January.

Moore was selected by a combination of votes from a panel of experts and the public, beating five other contenders: Sam Allardyce (Everton), Pep Guardiola (Manchester City), Roy Hodgson (Crystal Palace) and Jose Mourinho (Manchester United).
