Ralph Hasenhuttl has won the final Premier League Manager of the Month award of the 2019-2020 season after Southampton went unbeaten in July.
The Saints secured a memorable 1-0 victory over Manchester City and were one of only two teams to take points from Manchester United at Old Trafford after the restart, earning a 1-1 draw.
The month of July also saw Hasenhuttl’s side draw with Everton and Brighton before finishing the campaign with wins over Bournemouth and Sheffield United.
Hasenhuttl saw off competition from Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola, David Moyes, Jose Mourinho and June’s winner Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Southampton ranked third in the table for points gained since the season began again in June, such was their impressive form.
The Saints scored 10 goals in July with four coming from Che Adams. The striker had failed to find the net in his first Premier League season until his winning strike against Man City.
The club finished the season in 11th place, just seven points behind both Tottenham and Wolves.
West Ham’s Michail Antonio won the player award for July after scoring eight goals in seven matches to help steer his side away from relegation trouble.
The forward also became the first Hammers player to score four goals in a Premier League match as Moyes’ side condemned Norwich to relegation.
