Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has bagged the Manager of the Month Award in the Premier League for the month of September after leading the Gunners to a perfect record during the month under review. Mikel Arteta and Arsenal had a record of three wins from three Premier League matches last month.

Arteta was named the best Premier League manager for September earlier on Friday thus becoming the first Arsenal manager to win the award since legendary manager Arsene Wenger bagged it six years ago. Arteta became an Arsenal player thanks to Arsene Wenger several years ago and the Frenchman was in the dugout until he retired from football at the end of his Arsenal contract. Arsene Wenger masterminded the £10m signing of Arteta from Merseyside giants Everton on the final day of the 2012 summer transfer window. Arteta was one of five players signed by Wenger andArsenal officials nine years ago.

Arsenal struggled under Arteta at the start of the new Premier League campaign but the Spaniard has been able to bounce back from those struggles with three wins and one draw from the last four Premier League outings. The Gunners won all their league games last month including the North London Derby which ended in a 3-1 home win thanks to first half strikes from Emile Smith-Rowe, Pierre-EmerickAubameyang and Bukayo Saka. South Korean international star Son Heung-Min scored the lone Tottenham Hotspur goal in the second half.
Arteta and Arsenal had earlier beaten two struggling teams namely Norwich City and Burnley before the North London Derby meeting with Spurs. Skipper Aubameyang scored the only goal of the game midway into the second half to give Arsenal a 1-0 home win over Norwich City, while Norwegian international Martin Odegaard was responsible for the only goal of the match during the 1-0 away win over Burnley.
