Brendan Rodgers wins Manager of the Month award for August

Brendan RodgersBrendan Rodgers fended off competition from Andre Villas-Boas, Malky Mackay and Jose Mourinho to win the first Manager of the Month award of the 2013/14 Premier League season. The Ulsterman inspired back-to-back wins against Stoke and Aston Villa in August which led to him picking up the honour for the second time in managerial career.

The Reds secured successive 1-0 victories against both teams, with Augusts’ player of the month Daniel Sturridge bagging the winner in each. The Merseyside club have since continued to flourish with yet another 1-0 victory at home to rivals Man Utd at the start of September which puts them top of the table after three games. Rodgers and his side will now be gunning to maintain their 100% start to the season on Monday when they travel to Wales to take on Rodgers’ former side Swansea.

Elsewhere AVB also led Spurs to two 1-0 victories in August against Crystal Palace and Tottenham. Furthermore the north London club also booked their place in the main draw of the Europa League after demolishing Dinamo Tbilisi. They have since lost to fierce local rivals Arsenal but if AVB can get his new stellar squad to gel then they have the potential to be a real force this season.

Jose Mourinho has enjoyed a decent start to life back in the Premier League. Chelsea opened up the season with consecutive wins at home to Hull and Aston Villa, before coming away from Man Utd with a creditable point. The Blues were seconds away from winning the UEFA Super Cup but in the end agonisingly lost on penalties to Bayern Munich.

Malky Mackay is currently in his first season as a top-flight manager and has been able to collect a creditable four points from Cardiff's first three games. The Bluebirds suffered a 2-0 defeat at West Ham on the opening day but responded in stunning style with a shock 3-2 victory at home to title favourites Man City. At the end of the month they earned a hard-fought point at home to Everton, which puts them level with the likes of United on four points.
