Liverpool FC Manager Jürgen Klopp has been named English Premier League (EPL) manager of the month, the second time in a row.
Naijaparry reports that
Liverpool’s perfect start continued in September, with three wins.
They claimed a home win over Newcastle United as well as away victories at Chelsea and Sheffield United.
Klopp topped a four-man shortlist of Eddie Howe, Frank Lampard and Brendan Rodgers to take the award.
The European champions entered this week’s international break eight points clear at the top of the table after victory over Leicester.
That 2-1 win, secured by James Milner’s injury-time penalty, took their sequence of successive Premier League wins to 17.
Klopp, 52, has now won manager of the month on five occasions, having also taken the prize in September 2016, December 2018 and March 2019.
Liverpool return to action looking to equal Manchester City’s 18-match record on October 20 when they face beleaguered Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Aubameyang beats Mahrez to player of the month award
Meanwhile, Arsenal striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, has been named the winner of the EPL Player of the month for September.
The Gabon international won the English top-flight individual accolade following his outstanding form in the month under review.
Aubameyang delivered impactful showings for Unai Emery’s men last month, scoring in all the games he featured for the Gunners.
The 30-year-old found the back of the net five times to take his goal tally to seven in the EPL and helped Arsenal avoid defeat in September.
He grabbed a brace in the Gunners’ 2-2 draw against Watford and was also on the scoresheet against Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Aston Villa.
The impressive performances ensured he won the award ahead of Algeria international and Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez.
The forward also beat Leicester City’s Ricardo Pereira, Aston Villa’s John McGinn, Tottenham’s Son Heung-min, Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold and Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson to the individual accolade.
Aubameyang replicated his goal scoring form for Gabon on Thursday, scoring the match-winner in their 1-0 victory against Burkina Faso.
The former Borussia Dortmund striker will hope to continue with his impressive form for Arsenal when they take on Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on October 21.
