Rafa Benitez & Salomon Rondon nominated for November awards – Vote for them both here

Rafa Benitez has been nominated for the Premier League manager of the month after three wins out of three in November – while Salomon Rondon’s headed goal against Bournemouth has been shortlisted for Carling’s goal of the month award.

With a 1-0 win over Watford, a 2-1 win over Bournemouth and an away win at Burnley last Monday, Benitez helped us to a 100% record in November.

Considering the rut we were in – with us enduring our worst start for over 100 years – this is some achievement, especially when two of these three wins came over two of the most in-form sides outside of the top 6 in Watford and Bournemouth.

And then to Salomon Rondon.

The West Brom loanee has really stepped up to the plate since returning to full fitness a few weeks ago, scoring three goals in his last four games – including this Shearer-esque header to help us to a 2-1 win over Bournemouth last month:
