Guardiola the award winner

Pep Guardiola has won the February 2019 Barclays Manager of the Month award after overseeing victories in all four of Manchester City‘s matches.

City started the month lying five points behind Liverpool in the Premier League title race and eyeing tricky top-six showdowns with Arsenal and Chelsea. They beat Unai Emery‘s Gunners 3-1 and defeated Maurizio Sarri‘s Blues 6-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

Man City also won 2-0 at Everton and 1-0 at home against West Ham United, ending February only one point off the top. It is the sixth time Guardiola has won the monthly manager award, after votes from the public were combined with those of a panel of football experts. The Spaniard saw off competition from Emery and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was unable to scoop the prize for the second time in a row after his January triumph.
