This marks the third time the Portuguese manager would take home the monthly accolade after he won it in September 2018, and June 2020.

Nuno is the third different Portuguese coach to win Manager of the Month in the Premier League after Jose Mourinho and Andre Villas-Boas.

Wolves were unbeaten in October, picking up wins against Fulham, Leeds, and Crystal Palace without conceding a goal, while also drawing 1-1 against Newcastle.
