He's done it. He's only gone and done it. Pep Guardiola has been named Premier League Manager of the Month for December, thus snaffling the award for the fourth time on the bounce - a new record.

The Manchester City boss was named December's victor of the award, after also picking it up in September, October and November.

His Spurs side produced four wins, a draw and a single defeat to Guardiola's City, who remain unbeaten in the Premier League and sit 15 points clear at the top.

The England global has won the Premier League Player of the Month award six times in total - a joint record with Steven Gerrard.

It was only a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace on New Year's Eve that stopped City from having another ideal month, although their unbeaten season still remains intact.

In December, the league-leaders won six of their seven games - beating West Ham, Manchester United, Swansea, Tottenham, Bournemouth and Newcastle.

Having also won Manager of the Month in February of last season, 46-year-old Guardiola now has five gongs overall since moving to England in the summer of 2016.

Meanwhile, Harry Kane won Player of the Month for December, after netting eight times in a superb month.
