Pep Guardiola has beaten off competition from three top coaches to win the Premier League Barclays Manager of the Month award after a 100 per cent record with Manchester City in September.
Guardiola led Manchester City to win all four league fixtures in September, against Liverpool, Watford, Crystal Palace and Chelsea, scoring 17 goals without conceding.
The run extended Manchester City’s winning run to five EPL matches and are top of Premier League on goal difference ahead of city rivals Manchester United.
Spaniard Guardiola was selected by a combination of votes from a panel of experts and the public.
He beat Jose Mourinho, Mauricio Pochettino and Arsene Wenger to win the award for the second time since he moved to the Premier League last season.
