Guardiola surpassed Antonio Conte's mark of three consecutive wins

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has set a Premier League record by being named manager of the month four consecutive times.

The 46-year-old was named winner of December’s award as his side produced six league wins and a draw.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte won the award three times in a row in 2016.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane was player of the month for December to equal ex-Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard’s record of winning the award six times.

Kane, 24, struck eight goals – including two hat-tricks – during December.

His Spurs side produced four wins, a draw and a single defeat to Guardiola’s City, who remain unbeaten in the Premier League and sit 15 points clear at the top.
