However, this is the third Manager of the Month award for Arteta, who won it two times last season in September and March.

Mikel is also Arsenal’s second manager to win his opening five games of a Premier League season. Arsene Wenger achieved this record in two successive seasons during Arsenal’s Invincibles era of 2003/04.
