Mikel Arteta beats Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola to win Premier League manager of the month


Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has beaten Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola to win the Premier League’s manager of the month award for September

After losing their first three Premier League games in August to Brentford, Chelsea and Manchester City, Arteta’s side showed a drastic improvement in September by beating Norwich City, Burnley and Tottenham.

The Gunners were the only team in the Premier League to win all three matches in September and Arteta has now won the division’s manager of the month award for the first time in his career.

Guardiola, Klopp, Brighton manager Graham Potter and Aston Villa boss Dean Smith were the other candidates on the five-man shortlist.

"It's a great feeling, it means we went on a good run and won matches," Arteta said.

"But for me it's much more than that. It’s about the people involved, the people who work with me and how grateful I am to have them.

"The level of trust, implication and passion that they show working alongside me every day, that gives me the strength and then the belief in the players that they can do it, and that they are good enough to win matches and that we believe in them."
