Premier League top two Chelsea and Tottenham again feature heavily in the division's monthly awards.

Antonio Conte and Eden Hazard are nominated for manager of the month and goal of the month, respectively.

Harry Kane is up for the player of the month award and rivals Hazard for the most impressive strike.

Conte oversaw two wins and a draw during February and is looking to claim his fourth award, in just seven months, after three on the trot between October and December.

The Italian is up against Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho and Tony Pulis.

Kane is also aiming for his fourth win, this time in the player of the month category, which would draw him level with the likes of Frank Lampard, Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Spurs talisman scored four times during the month, including a first-half hat-trick against Stoke City, and faces competition from Gabriel Jesus, Eldin Jakupovic, Romelu Lukaku, Gareth McAuley and David Silva.

Kane's second strike against Stoke, a left-footed drive from the edge of the area, is in the running for goal of the month against Hazard's solo effort against Arsenal.

Also in contention is Lukaku's fine finish against Bournemouth, Henrikh Mkhitaryan's own solo effort against Leicester City, Gylfi Sigurdsson's finish from distance against Manchester City, Robbie Brady's stunning free kick against Chelsea and Danny Drinkwater's half-volley against Liverpool.
