BREAKING: Pep Guardiola named manager of the month as Hazard and Kane win big

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has been named the Premier League Manager of the month for February.

The 46-year-old Spaniard was selected for the award ahead of Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, Manchester United's Jose Mourinho and West Brom's Tony Pulis, who all won twice but drew once in February.

On his part, Guardiola guided his side to three wins from as many matches, helping City to their current position of third in the table.

City began the month with a 4-0 win at West Ham United, then triumphed 2-1 at home to Swansea City thanks to Gabriel Jesus' late goal before they won 2-0 away at Bournemouth.

However, Guardiola’s side struggled to a goalless draw at home to Stoke City on Wednesday night, March 8.

This is Pep Guardiola first manager of the month award since he joined Man City last summer.

Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspurs striker Harry Kane was also named Player of the Month after banging in four goals in three games for his team last month.

While Chelsea ace Eden Hazard won Goal of the Month for his wonder strike against Arsenal.

Hazard ran from inside his own half before firing past Petr Cech as the Blues ran out 3-1 winners against their London rivals.

And after winning the Premier League accolade, the Belgium winger admitted it was “fantastic” – before targeting even more silverware over the next couple of months.

He said: “It is always good to win trophies. It is not my most important target to win Goal of the Month, I want to win big trophies at the end of the season."
