West Ham United manager David Moyes has been nominated for the January Manager of the Month award after the Hammers remained unbeaten throughout January - and fans have reacted in disbelief.

The east Londoners managed to avoid defeat throughout the entire months, beating Huddersfield 4-1 and West Bromwich Albion 2-1 while drawing against Tottenham Hotspur, Crystal Palace and Bournemouth.

However, it comes amid what is likely to be considered a disappointing month for the Hammers after they failed to sign a central midfielder in January and were knocked out of the FA Cup by League One side Wigan Athletic.

But the club's Premier League form was certainly decent enough to see Moyes nominated, and he joins Mauricio Pochettino, Jose Mourinho, Eddie Howe, Carlos Carvalhal, Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp in the running.

West Ham fans are shocked, though, that the Premier League has noticed Moyes with the nominates, with many stating that the Hammers have not had as good a month as the award suggests.

One fan even described the club as a "running joke".
