Neil is up again Newcastle United's Rafa Benitez, Carlos Carvahal of Sheffield Wednesday and Reading's Jaap Stam.

Murphy's competition comes from Bristol City striker Tammy Abraham, central defender Shane Duffy, of Brighton, and Brentford's Scott Hogan.

Neil has guided City to five wins – including the 2-0 Capital One Cup third round win at Premier League Everton – in a row, before the 4-3 defeat at Newcastle.

The Canaries are second in the table, with Newcastle third, Reading eighth and Sheffield Wednesday ninth.
