Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has been named Premier League Manager of the Month for the second successive month.
This was after he led City to a 100 per cent Premier League record last month, winning all seven of their domestic matches to open up an eight-point lead at the top of the table.
The award means Guardiola has now won the Manager of the Month award 11 times in total during his City tenure, placing him third on the overall standings.
It has also seen the Catalan move clear of David Moyes with only Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson now having claimed the prize more times.
It is the Spaniard’s 11th Manager of the Month award which puts him behind just Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger on the all-time list.
The Citizens not only went undefeated throughout December, but actually won every single game of the seven they played in the league.
December is Guardiola‘s second successive award having also claimed the crown in November where, again, City went unbeaten throughout the month.
Particular highlights in December include a 7-0 thumping of Leeds United and the 6-3 goal fest against Leicester City.
The club’s forward, Raheem Sterling, was voted the Premier League Player of the Month for December, beating team-mate Joao Cancelo, who was also nominated.
