Chelsea head coach Carlo Ancelotti has been named as the Premier League Manager of the Month for November.
The 50-year-old Italian has enjoyed a fine start to his time in charge at Stamford Bridge, with the Blues currently five points clear at the top of the table.
Last month Chelsea won three league games out of three without conceding a goal, starting with a 1-0 home victory over reigning champions Manchester United.
That was followed by a 4-0 Bridge hammering of Wolves and a resounding 3-0 triumph at Arsenal.
Ancelotti told his club's official website:"I am happy to win the award and I would like to win in December as well.
"We started the season very well and in November we played very good matches, including the win against Arsenal which was a fantastic match.
"For now the team is in a good moment and we have to maintain this."
