Marco Silva has been nominated for the Barclays Manager of the Month Award for March.
The Portuguese has guided his side to successive 2-0 victories over Chelsea and West Ham United, with Everton having started the month by becoming only the third team this season to shut out Liverpool in a goalless Merseyside derby at Goodison Park.
