Jurgen Klopp has been named as the August 2019 Barclays Manager of the Month.

Klopp was the only manager to enjoy a perfect start as he led Liverpool to the top of the table with four consecutive wins to open the season.

That run included a 3-1 victory over Arsenal and a 3-0 success at Burnley that set a club-record 13th straight Premier League victory.

Liverpool scored 12 goals and conceded only three in the opening month.

The 52-year-old, who has now claimed the award for a fourth time, topped a four-man shortlist after votes from the public were combined with those of a panel of football experts, beating Pep Guardiola, Roy Hodgson and Brendan Rodgers.

Klopp will aim to extend his perfect start at home to Newcastle United on Saturday.
