Pep Guardiola, Manchester City vs West Ham, 17/18
The Spaniard has picked up the award yet again after guiding his side to four wins from as many league games in the month of November

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has been named Premier League Manager of the Month for the third time in a row.

City recorded victories over Arsenal, Leicester City, Huddersfield and Southampton during the month of November under Guardiola's tutelage.

The four-straight wins were part of his side's record-breaking run of 15 successive Premier League victories, which they clinched against Swansea City on Wednesday.

Guardiola becomes only the second manager to ever win the award for the third time in succession - matching Chelsea manager Antonio Conte's efforts last season.

The Spaniard saw off competition from Conte, Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp, Burnley's Sean Dyche, Manchester United's Jose Mourinho and Arsenal's Arsene Wenger to win the prize again.

No manager has ever won the award four times in a row but Guardiola could be in line to do so, with City having won their opening three league games so far in December.

The league leaders have downed West Ham, Man United and Swansea so far this month with clashes against Tottenham, Bournemouth, Newcastle and Crystal Palace to follow.

City are currently 11 points clear at the top of the league table with Mourinho's United their nearest rivals in second.
