Pep Guardiola has emerged as the first coach ever to win the Premier League Manager of the Month for a record four times in a row after he was named the winner of the December edition.

The Manchester City manager also won the award in September, October and November as his side remain unbeaten this season.

City finished the year 14 points clear of their rivals after completing six victories and one draw in December.

Among the games was a 2-1 victory away to second-placed Manchester United and a 4-1 home win over Tottenham Hotspur.

They also beat West Ham United 2-1, Swansea City and Bournemouth both 4-0 and Newcastle United 1-0 to set an English top-flight record of 18 straight wins before ending the month with a 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace.

Guardiola topped a six-man shortlist which included Conte, Everton's Sam Allardyce, Roy Hodgson of Crystal Palace, Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp and Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.
