Bournemouth manager, Eddie Howe has won the Barclays Premier League Manager of the Month award for October.
Howe, 40, beat off competition from Pep Guardiola of Manchester City, Maurizio Sarri of Chelsea and Brighton and Hove Albion boss, Chris Hughton.
Last month, Howe led Bournemouth to three victories and one draw with no defeat. His side also became the the first team to win at Watford this season.
It is Howe’s third Manager of the Month award, having also won the accolade in March 2017 and January 2018.
“It’s a really nice feeling,” Howe said after being presented with the award.
“I’m really proud of the team, the players, the staff and the supporters. It’s a good thing to achieve in the Premier League because a good month can go a long way.
“It’s been a good start to the season.
“I think we’ve had a really good pre-season. We looked at all aspects of it and tried to redefine it and that’s potentially been game-changing for us.”
A combination of public votes and a panel of football experts decided October’s winner this week.
