Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has been Premier League Manager of the Month for September after his team's free-scoring form saw them rise to the top of table. 

It is the second time he has won after previously taking home the prize in February of last season.

Guardiola's City were victorious in all four of the Premier League games they played during September, scoring five goals on two occasions and six on another.

The month began when Liverpool were put to the sword at the Etihad Stadium, with Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane each scoring a brace in the 5-0 win.

A week later, Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick in the 6-0 annihilation of Watford at Vicarage Road, while Raheem Sterling was the standout star with a brace in the 5-0 destruction of Crystal Palace that followed exactly another week down the line.

Crucially, City were also able to finish the month with a hard fought 1-0 win against reigning Premier League champions and title rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in a completely different kind of game.

Still to play in October as a result of the recently concluded international break, City lead the standings on goal difference ahead of local rivals Manchester United, with both Manchester clubs as many as five points clear of the rest of the chasing pack already.

Guardiola and City will begin their October schedule with a home game against Stoke on Saturday and will be in action a total of five times before the end of the month.
