Ahead of his side’s Monday night clash with Manchester United, Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has been voted the Premier League Manager of the month for September.

Klopp beat the likes of Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola, Crystal Palace’s Alan Pardew, Tottenham Hotspur’s Mauricio Pochettino and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to the award after guiding Liverpool to maximum points in September in impressive fashion.

With the win, the 49-year-old becomes the first German to win the award in Premier League history.

Klopp’s men started September with a 4 – 1 victory over defending Champions Leicester City at Anfield, before Jordan Henderson’s Carling Goal of the Month secured a 2 – 1 win at Chelsea. The Reds then triumphed 5 – 1 at home against newly-promoted Hull City.

It was another record breaking feat at the Player’s category as Tottenham midfielder, Son Heung-min, became the first Asian footballer to win the EPL Player of the Month award after winning September’s prize.

The South Korean international enjoyed an inspired run of form for Tottenham last month, scoring four goals and assisting in another as his team, like Liverpool, won all three matches in September.

The Premier League resumes this weekend after a week of international break.
