Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has won the Premier League Manager of the Month award for April.
The news will come as little consolation for the Argentine, however, as May began with a damaging 1-0 defeat at West Ham that effectively ended Spurs' title challenge with Chelsea able to clinch the crown with victory at West Brom on Friday.
Pochettino led his side to six successive wins in April - scoring 16 times and conceding just one - as the north London team threatened to push Chelsea all the way.
But the 1-0 setback at the London Stadium means they will likely have to settle for second place and automatic qualification to the Champions League next season.
