Jurgen Klopp and Teemu Pukki have won the Premier League‘s Manager and Player of the month respectively.

Klopp has Liverpool top of the table after four wins from four, while Pukki has scored five goals in his first four PL games for newly-promoted Norwich City.

It is no surprise that Klopp won this award, as although his Liverpool side haven’t been firing on all cylinders they’ve been ruthless to secure four wins from four. Brendan Rodgers and Roy Hodgson have impressed early on with Leicester and Crystal Palace punching above their weight, but Klopp seems more focused than ever to deliver a Premier League title.

As for Pukki, the 29-year-old has hit the ground running in his first-ever season in the Premier League. The predatory forward has been typically clinical and after being named the Championship Player of the Season in Norwich’s promotion campaign last season, he is going to be the key man if the Canaries are going to stay up this season.

Pukki scored a consolation against Liverpool, then a hat trick in the 3-1 win against Newcastle and was also on target in Norwich’s defeat to Chelsea.
