Montemurro joins Manchester City manager Nick Cushing in the only managers left with a 100 per cent winning record in this campaign.

The Gunners opened with a 2-1 win over West Ham and followed that up with a 1-0 victory at Manchester United thanks to a late Danielle Van De Donk strike.

And they slammed four goals past Brighton to ensure they have the best goal difference.

Tottenham Hotspur's joint management team of Karen Hills and Juan Amoros are also nominated after their flying start in the division while Chelsea's Emma Hayes makes up the list.
