Baku, March 13, AZERTAC
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola and midfielder Ilkay Gundogan have been named the Premier League Manager and Player of the Month respectively for a second successive time, the league said on Friday, according to Reuters.
Guardiola’s side won each of their six league games during February to continue their march towards the Premier League title.
Gundogan, who becomes the first City player to receive the award in consecutive months, scored four goals and provided one assist in five appearances last month.
Gundogan beat team mate Joao Cancelo, Fulham’s Joachim Andersen, Leicester City’s Harvey Barnes, Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes, West Ham United’s Jesse Lingard, Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Ruben Neves and Leeds United’s Raphinha to the award.
City are top of the league with 68 points after 29 games and visit 18th-placed Fulham on Saturday.
