Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, Tottenham winger Harry Kane and Chelsea star Eden Hazard picked the English Premier League February Awards for Manager of the Month, Player of the Month and Goal of the Month respectively.
Guardiola beat Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho, Chelsea’s Antonio Conte and West Brom’s Tony Pulis to the award.
“Congratulations Pep Guardiola on winning your first @BarclaysFooty Manager of the Month award for February,” Premier League tweeted on Friday.
The 46-year old, who led City to three wins in three games in February, is getting the award for the first time since joining the club last summer.
Harry Kane was voted Player of the Month, while Eden Hazard’s goal in Chelsea’s 3-1 win over Arsenal is Goal of the Month.
Kane, who scored four goals in three matches in February and provided an assist beat five other contenders: Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus and David Silva, West Brom defender Gareth McAuley, Hull goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic and Everton’s Romelu Lukaku.
Hazard’s goal, a brilliant solo effort, beat eight other goals to the award.
“It is one of the best Premier League goals I have scored for sure,” Hazard told the Premier League website.
“When the ball went in I felt that I created something special so I was happy.”
