Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been named the Barclays Premier League Manager of the Month for October.
Wenger had a perfect month for the Gunners, which began with the 3-0 thumping of Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium.
Victories over Watford, Everton and Swansea City followed, helping Arsenal to draw level on points with league leaders Manchester City.
“It is always good because it just reminds you that – especially after a defeat like we had on Wednesday night [5-1 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich] – we have not done too badly in the last month,” Wenger was quoted in the English media.
“You worry as well about maintaining the run for coming months. That is what we want to do always.
When asked about that emphatic victory over United, Wenger added: “That was the highlight because there are very few matches in your life where it all clicks perfectly in the first 20 minutes and that is one of the games.
“We had a difficult start against West Ham and after that we have responded very well and are now on a good run. Our target of course is to maintain it.”
