Carlo Ancelotti has been named the Barclays Manager of the Month for September.
"I'm really pleased," Ancelotti said. "It's a great achievement. I have to share with my team and my players.
"We've started really well and we hope to continue it and to win this award again."
The Italian picked the 1-0 success at Spurs as the standout result in September, and hopes the winning start can help the Toffees push for European qualification this season.
"The key was the first match at Tottenham Hotspur," he said. "That victory increased our confidence.
"We worked well in the transfer market. We signed players that we need and they've adapted really fast.
"Our target is to reach Europe next season and to stay at the top for as long as possible."
It is the fifth time the 61-year-old has won the award and his first since April 2011. His other four came at Chelsea.
With Dominic Calvert-Lewin earning September's EA SPORTS Player of the Month prize, this is the first time Everton have claimed an awards double since defender Phil Jagielka and manager David Moyes topped the shortlists in February 2009.
