Guardiola wins 1st Premier League Manager of the Month award
Pep Guardiola has been named the Premier League Manager of the Month for February after three wins in three matches
Manchester City only played three matches in February due to FA Cup and Champions League commitments but emerged with a 100 percent record, scoring eight goals and conceding just once.
The Premier League player of the month for February went to Harry Kane.
The Tottenham Hotspur striker has collected the trophy for the fourth time in his career after a sterling month in which scored four goals in his three Premier League appearances.
The England international was proud to collect the trophy, admitting that it was ‘a great honour’ to do so.
‘It was a good month for me and obviously for the team as well, so it’s a real honour to accept this award,’ he said.
Goal of the month went to Eden Hazard for his brilliant run and finish that put Arsenal to the sword in the 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge.
‘It is one of the best Premier League goals I have scored for sure,’ Hazard said. ‘I was not thinking about scoring but step by step I came close to the goal and in the last 10 metres I was alone.
‘When the ball went in I felt that I created something special so I was happy.’
Hazard is the second Chelsea player to win the award this campaign, after Pedro’s goal against Tottenham earned the November prize.
