Pep Guardiola has claimed the Premier League Manager of the Month award for November, making it his tenth time receiving the accolade and bringing him up to third on the all-time list.  

Manchester City won all five of their Premier League fixtures across November, including a dominant 2-0 victory in the Manchester derby against United. 

Their impressive form over the month has seen Guardiola’s side return to the summit of the table, leapfrogging Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea in the process.

The accolade brings the City boss up to third on the all-time list for the award, level with West Ham boss David Moyes and just five behind Arsene Wenger. 

Sir Alex Ferguson leads the list by a long way, however, with the former United boss claiming a whopping 27 Manager of the Month awards.

The Citizens suffered a rocky October where they dropped points against Liverpool and Crystal Palace, and were knocked out of the Carabao Cup on penalties by West Ham. 

However, last month Guardiola’s side secured victories over Everton, West Ham, Manchester United and beat PSG and Club Brugge in the Champions League to ensure their space in the next round of the competition.

The former Barcelona manager has an even busier December schedule having already beaten Aston Villa and Watford – Man City still have five more league fixtures remaining.

Ahead of his team’s trip to Wolves this weekend, Guardiola said: ‘The schedule is good, it’s historic.’ 

‘I like to play in the winter time – my words will not change anything. If you have just two days rest between games, no time to recover, every season nothing changes, but just adapt and pray for no injuries.

‘We go forwards, the players have ability to go to their limits as much as possible. 

‘What is next for us is tomorrow at 12.30 and we don’t think about other things. The next one is the most important.’
