Jurgen Klopp has been named the Premier League’s Manager of the Month for the second month in a row after Liverpool maintained their winning start to the season in September.
The Liverpool manager, who won the accolade for August, guided his team to victories at home against Newcastle and away at Chelsea and Sheffield United last month, which took the club’s winning league run to 16 matches.
Klopp topped a four-man shortlist after votes from the public were combined with those of a panel of experts, beating Eddie Howe, Frank Lampard, and Brendan Rodgers.
The 52-year-old German saw Liverpool extend their sequence of wins in the Premier League to 17 against Leicester last weekend as they moved eight points clear at the top of the table after last season’s champions Manchester City lost against Wolves.
It is the fifth time Klopp has been named Premier League Manager of the Month, having taken the award on September 2016, December 2018 and March 2019 before receiving the August 2019 accolade.
