Pep Guardiola has been named Premier League Manager of the Month after guiding City to a perfect January.
Man City won all six Premier League games last month, scoring 16 and conceding just one, a run of form that saw them move from eighth to first in the table.
City’s Premier League form was part of our record-breaking nine-game winning streak in all competitions, the most by a team in the top four tiers of English football in a single month since the formation of the Football League in 1888.
Man City scored 24 goals and conceded just two in the process, winning two FA Cup fixtures and a Carabao Cup semi-final at Old Trafford in addition to our six league victories.
Guardiola believes the context in which the results were attained, against a backdrop of COVID-19 restrictions, makes the achievement even more notable.
“What this team achieved in January – winning all our games, despite all the restrictions we face – is remarkable,” he said.
“This just shows how focused my players and staff are.
“They are incredible, and I am so proud to work alongside them
“Every single person involved deserves huge credit.”
City are currently on a 15-game winning run in all competitions and are unbeaten in 22 matches, with their last defeat coming on November 21, 2020 at Tottenham.
