The Croat's unbeaten league run continued into September as the Baggies took seven points from a possible nine last month, especially impressive considering that West Brom were behind against Fulham and Huddersfield.
Albion picked up a point in a 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage, then thrashed the Terriers 4-2 at The Hawthorns, before seeing off QPR 2-0 on their own patch, results which went a long way to their current spot at the summit of the table - even following their maiden league defeat - ahead of the international break.
Bilic has been nominated alongside Nottingham Forest’s Sabri Lamouchi, Sheffield Wednesday’s Garry Monk and Preston's Alex Neil, and the winner will be announced tomorrow.
Here is what some of the Baggies faithful made of the news on social media:
