Chelsea's Thomas Tuchel is named Premier League Manager of the Month

Thomas Tuchel is named as the Premier League’s Manager of the Month for October after guiding Chelsea to four wins from four – and conceding just ONCE – to stay at the top of the table

  • Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel is October’s Premier League Manager of the Month
  • The Blues won all four Premier League games in October – conceding just once
  • The run included a 7-0 win over Norwich and a slender 1-0 win at Brentford 
  • It is the second time the German has won the award after claiming it in March

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been named as the Premier League’s Manager of the Month for October after four wins from four as Blues boss. 

The German has kept the west Londoners at the top of the table with victories over Southampton, Norwich, Brentford and Newcastle, with Chelsea conceding just one goal against the Saints at the start of the month.

Tuchel beat compatriot Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool and Crystal Palace’s Patrick Vieira to the prize, who both also managed to stay unbeaten during October, while West Ham’s David Moyes was also in the running.

Tuchel’s Blues picked up four wins from four in October – including a 7-0 win over Norwich

Chelsea’s fine October league form included a 7-0 thrashing of Norwich at Stamford Bridge, but that goal tally ended up being only half of the Blues’ strikes last month. 

The west Londoners netted 14 goals in the Premier League during October, to take their overall tally to 26 goals in ten matches. 

However Tuchel’s Chelsea stalled in their next match with a 1-1 draw at home to Burnley at the start of November, but their lead at the top of the table still remains at three points. 

It is just the second time that Tuchel has managed to win the Premier League Manager of the Month prize, with the German – who arrived at Chelsea in January – claiming the same award in March of this year.

Tuchel’s Chelsea also won at home to Southampton and away to Brentford and Newcastle

But the Blues did need some luck during their October run of wins, after scoring twice late on against Southampton before claiming a slender 1-0 west London derby win at Brentford, which saw goalkeeper Edouard Mendy make a string of top-class saves.

The victories over relegation-threatened Norwich and Newcastle were more emphatic, while the Blues also beat Malmo in the Champions League and Southampton in the Carabao Cup to continue their solid start to the campaign.

After drawing against Burnley, Tuchel will be hoping for more positive results in a very tricky November for the Blues.

Chelsea head to Leicester after the international break, before hosting Juventus in the Champions League just days before Manchester United come to Stamford Bridge on November 28.
