The first Premier League Manager of the month accolade for 2017/18 has been awarded to Huddersfield Town head coach, David Wagner. 

The German has lead the Terriers to third place in the table, and level on points with second placed Liverpool.

No Huddersfield Town could believe that their head coach would be beating the likes of Liverpool’s Jürgen Klopp, Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola, Manchester United’s José Mourinho and West Brom’s Tony Pulis to the prize.

The winner of the award was selected by legends of the Premier League, people like Sir Alex Ferguson, Alan Shearer and Jamie Carragher as well as the fans.

Wagner has guided Town to an unbeaten start in the league, winning two out of his first three Premier League games. Winning 3-0 against Crystal Palace on the opening day at Selhurst Park.

The Terriers then won 1-0 at home to Newcastle United, courtesy of an Aaron Mooy goal, and their third Premier League game ended in an entertaining 0-0 draw with Southampton.

Town are only the second promoted side in Premier League history to keep three clean sheets in their first three games, Charlton being the first newly promoted side to do this in the 1997/98 season.

On winning the award Wagner said: “I am happy; it’s an honour for me to receive this award but I would like to take it for the whole club. My players earned the results on the pitch and got a lot of details right.

“I always hoped we would start well but I didn’t expect it; we are happy so far but like I said it’s only a start and we have to stay focused throughout the season.”
