Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp has been named the Premier League Manager of the Month.
The Reds boss has helped transform his side into serious title contenders and had a 100 per cent record during September.
Liverpool recorded comprehensive victories against Leicester, Hull and Chelsea in the league to cement their position in the top four.
Klopp’s side scored 11 goals in those three fixtures and have been in impressive attacking form all season.
The Premier League announced on their official Twitter account that Klopp had won the September award, beating rivals Pep Guardiola, Alan Pardew, Mauricio Pochettino and Arsene Wenger.

Liverpool also managed a 3-0 win against Debry in the EFL Cup and have managed to build up some serious momentum.
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson was rewarded for his strike against Chelsea, as he won the Premier League goal of the month competition.
Klopp moved to Anfield last October following Brendan Rodgers’ sacking and has become a fan favourite amongst the Anfield supporters.
The German is well known for his high intensity philosophy and his Liverpool side are beginning to match that on the pitch.
He has operated with a front three of Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, with the trio full of pace and energy in attack.
Liverpool face a tricky fixture against rivals Manchester United on Monday and Klopp will be hoping to continue the good form.
