Hull City caretaker Mike Phelan has won the Premier League's Manager of the Month award for August, with Manchester City's Raheem Sterling named Player of the Month.
Former Manchester United coach Phelan was appointed to the role at KCOM Stadium after Steve Bruce's resignation.
And, despite seeing his already threadbare squad hampered further by injuries, Phelan guided Hull to wins over champions Leicester City and Swansea City, before losing in stoppage time to United.
The Player of the Month award is Sterling's first, the attacker securing it with two goals and an assist to help City record a 100 per cent start to the season.
Chelsea’s Eden Hazard won the public vote, but Sterling has scooped the award ahead of the Belgian, Antonio Valencia and Curtis Davies following his impressive start to the season for City.
Pep Guardiola’s side have won all three of their Premier League games so far, while Sterling has scored two goals and registered one assist.
City visit United in the Manchester derby on Saturday, while Hull are away to Burnley.
