    Nuno Espirito Santo Named Premier League Manager of the Month for August

    Nuno Espirito Santo has been named the Premier League’s Barclays Manager of the Month for August.

    Appointed in July, Nuno's first month in charge was pitch perfect - three wins, three clean sheets, nine points, top of the league!

    The three matches all provided different challenges as well - a memorable opening day win over champions Manchester City, under pressure at Nuno's former club Wolves and then Watford proving a tough nut to crack last time out.

    Nuno is the eighth Spurs manager to win the award and it's the fourth time he's won it after taking the accolade at Wolves in September 2018, June 2020 and October 2020.

    Spurs secured three successive 1-0 victories in August, beating Premier League champions Manchester City on the opening day, before winning away at Nuno's former club Wolverhampton Wanderers and at home against Watford.

    Speaking to the Premier League, Nuno said: "It's a privilege, I'm very thankful. Behind the scenes, with all the work that everybody in the club does, helping the coaching staff and trying to provide the right environment for the players to compete, because this is how we want to work together, push each other, help each other, so it's a privilege to be here.

    "I always say that it's down to the hard work of the players. The players have worked really hard in pre-season and that gave us the ability to compete well in the beginning of the season.

    "In the league they're tough matches and always very competitive, but the credit is for the players because they are the ones who delivered the results and the performances."

    Nuno will now look to maintain Tottenham's 100% start to the season when they travel to face Crystal Palace on Saturday lunchtime.
