Carlo Ancelotti has been named as the Premier League’s Manager of the Month for September, having guided his new-look Everton team to the top of the table.
The Italian masterminded three impressive wins last month, which included a season-opening victory against Tottenham, a 5-2 mauling of West Brom before edging Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
The Toffees’ perfect start to the campaign has left them sitting pretty at the top of the table, with Ancelotti being recognised for his efforts.
After being instilled as the club’s manager last December, the 61-year-old has put his stamp on the side after bringing in the likes of James Rodriguez, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Allan during the summer transfer window.
More impressively, Ancelotti has turned Dominic Calvert-Lewin into an absolute goal machine, with the England international also picking up September’s Player of the Month award.
Many have put Calvert-Lewin’s recent rich vein of form down to Ancelotti’s coaching, with the ex-AC Milan boss turning the forward into a lethal poacher in and around the box.
His team are not letting up, either, and have maintained their perfect start as they entered the month of October after beating Brighton to make it four wins from four.
After receiving his award, Ancelotti took to Twitter to thank everyone for their support before outlining his desire to win it again.
He said: “This is a great achievement for this month. I have to share this recognition with my team because they started the season well.
“We want to continue and win this award again. Thanks to all.”
Everton have the chance to continue their dream start after the international break when they welcome rivals Liverpool to Goodison Park.
