Harry Redknapp has been named Premier League manager of the month for September following an impressive run of results with Tottenham.
Spurs have claimed maximum points in the league this month having secured a comfortable 4-0 victory over Liverpool at White Hart Lane, as well as away wins at Wolves and Wigan.
That winning run has lifted the North Londoners into sixth place in the early standings.
It is the second time Redknapp has scooped the award since taking over at Tottenham after winning the prize in August 2009, while it is the seventh time he has won the gong overall in his managerial career.
"It's always nice to win an award," Redknapp told Spurs' official website.
"We have had a good month and played some good football so I couldn't be more pleased.
"We have put in some great performances, especially against Liverpool as well as picking up two away wins against Wigan and Wolves and credit must go to all the players for that."
Meanwhile, influential Manchester City playmaker David Silva has picked up the award for player of the month.
The Spaniard has helped City stay unbeaten in the league this month while securing victories at home to Wigan and Everton.
Silva's award makes it a double for the Blues after Edin Dzeko won the same prize for August following his goalscoring exploits.
