Guardiola: Manager of the month again

Pep Guardiola won the award for Premier League Manager of the Month once more, being the second head coach to ever win the prize three times in a row

It comes as no surprise that the Spaniard has picked up the award yet again after guiding Manchester City to four out of four victories in league games during the month of November. They have managed to get these wins over Arsenal, Leicester City and Huddersfield Town, and Southampton.

These four wins contribute to the amazing record of the Citizens that they have so far this season. The Blue side of Manchester remain unbeaten after 17 Premier League games, leading the title race by 11 points ahead of their local rivals and second-placed Manchester United.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager became only the second head coach to ever win the award for the third time in succession. The only one able to do this besides him was Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, when the Blues went on to win the title last season.

According to GOAL, the Spaniard saw off competition from Conte, Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp, Burnley’s Sean Dyche, Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho and Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger to win the prize again.

And if that’s not enough, Guardiola could very well break the all-time record soon, since the Citizens are yet to lose in December. If Guardiola goes on to win the award for the fourth time, this season might go down in the books not only as a historic season for Manchester City, but for Pep Guardiola as well.

The league leaders have downed West Ham, Man United and Swansea so far this month with clashes against Tottenham, Bournemouth, Newcastle and Crystal Palace to follow before the mid-season break. If Guardiola’s men manage to pull away from the pack even more, it will be close to impossible to stop them.
