Unai Emery named EPL Manager of the Month for April
Unai Emery has been named Premier League Manager of the Month for April.
Aston Villa’s head coach masterminded five wins from seven games during the month to help the club charge up the table.
A statement 2-0 victory against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge ensured April began in fine fashion, with another away success at Leicester City (2-1) following three days later.
Back-to-back home wins continued Villa’s progress, with Nottingham Forest (2-0) and Newcastle United (3-0) swept aside.
Villa’s battling qualities were on display to earn a 1-1 draw at Brentford before the team overcame Fulham at Villa Park (1-0).
Manchester United ended the Villans’ ten-game unbeaten run with a narrow 1-0 win at Old Trafford to end the month.
Having been nominated for the award but missing out in January and March this year, this is the first time Emery has won Premier League Manager of the Month.
