The 49-year-old led the Toffees to three successive wins during the month to maintain their challenge for a top-four finish.

Moyes beat Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino and Fulham's Martin Jol to the award.

It is the 10th time Moyes has won the Manager of the Month award.

His Everton side are currently sixth in the Premier League table, four points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

Tottenham defender Vertonghen was named Barclays Player of the Month ahead of Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, Fulham forward Dimitar Berbatov and Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea.

Vertonghen, 25, was an ever-present during Spurs' four Premier League games in March, scoring three goals.

The Belgian international is enjoying an impressive debut season in England, having moved to White Lane from Dutch club Ajax last summer.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
