HISTORY MAKER! Ange Postecoglou is the first EPL boss to win the first 3 prizes of a season

Ange Postecoglou

Greek-Australian football manager Ange Postecoglou has made history by winning the Barclays Premier League Manager of the Month award for the third time in a row after winning the October prize following the ones he received for August and September.

The Tottenham Hotspur manager becomes the first boss ever to win the first three Manager of the Month awards available to him, and the first to claim the first three awards from the start of any Premier League season.

Only three other managers have won the award for three consecutive months, with the Australian joining Antonio Conte, Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp in an elite club.

Postecoglou now has the chance to match Guardiola's record run of four successive awards, which the Manchester City manager accomplished in 2017/18.

Spurs finished October at the top of the Premier League table, and were the only team to win all of their October matches thanks to away wins over Luton Town and Crystal Palace, and a 2-0 home victory against Fulham.

Postecoglou topped a poll of a four-man shortlist, after votes from fans were combined with those of a panel of experts.
