Sean Dyche has been named the Premier League Manager of the Month for February after guiding Burnley to an unbeaten four-match run.
Burnley moved into the top half of the Premier League with victories against Southampton and Bournemouth either side of draws with Arsenal and Newcastle, prior to the suspension of the league programme.
Dyche, who adds to his award from March 2018, is the third Premier League manager to receive the honour this season after Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Chelsea’s Frank Lampard.
After winning the award, Dyche told the Premier League’s website that the club’s victory at St Mary’s with an injury-hit attack was the highlight of the month:
“The most important of the four results was probably Southampton.
“They were on a good run and we lost a player in Woody (Chris Wood) early on, put Vyds (Matej Vydra) on and it paid off.
“The Premier League is unforgiving. It’s not a case of not enjoying the moments but I reflect on them and then park them pretty quickly.
“I’m always looking at the end of the season, where you finish, and not the journey within it. But I do enjoy it more than people think!”
