David Moyes: It is the 10th time he has been named Barclays Manager of the Month

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.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
