Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was named Premier League manager of the month for September on Friday after guiding the club to four wins from four games.

City, that tops the table on 19 points and is ahead of local rivals Manchester United on goal difference after seven games, began the month with a 5-0 thumping of Liverpool before beating Watford 6-0 away and Crystal Palace 5-0 at home.

Guardiola’s team rounded off its clean sweep in September with a hard fought 1-0 victory at defending champions Chelsea to take their total to 17 goals scored with none conceded during the month, Reuters reported.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane was named player of the month after scoring six goals in four league games. The 24-year-old opened his domestic account for the season with a brace in Tottenham’s 3-0 win at Everton on Sept. 9, but failed to find the net as his side was held to a 0-0 draw by struggling Swansea City in their next league game.

Kane got back on track the following weekend with another double as Tottenham ran out 3-2 winners at West Ham United before adding two more goals in their 4-0 demolition of promoted Huddersfield Town on Sept. 30.
