Jurgen Klopp has been awarded the Premier league manager of the month award for a second consecutive month.
His Liverpool side has made a perfect start to the Premier League season, winning all eight of their league fixtures so far.
With wins at home to Newcastle then two hard fought victories on the road against Chelsea and Sheffield United in September, Klopp ensured a second consecutive manager of the month award under his belt as Liverpool stretched their winning streak to seventeen in consecutive Premier League games.
A streak that began late in last season’s campaign.
A win against Leicester this past weekend extended the streak to 17 and they can equal Manchester City’s 2017 record with a victory against Manchester United after the international break.
The 52-year-old German has now scooped the award for the fifth time, having also won it in September 2016, December 2018, March 2019 and August 2019.
He beat off competition from Chelsea new boy Frank Lampard, Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe and former reds boss Brendan Rodgers who all had successful months.
The award is yet another sign of the Reds’ dominance early into the season. Defender Joel Matip similarly claimed the PFA player of the month for September as well.
