Tottenham is the only club to win in October in the Premier League, defeating Luton Town 1-0, Fulham 2-0 and Crystal Palace 2-1.

Not counting the loss to Chelsea, Tottenham won 26 points through the first 10 rounds with eight wins and one draw.

Thanks to that, Postecoglou surpassed colleagues Mikel Arteta, Unai Emery, and Jurgen Klopp to receive the Premier League’s best coach award for October.

With this achievement, Postecoglou became the first coach to be voted best coach of the month in his first three months working in the Premier League.

Postecoglou belongs to a group of four coaches who have won this individual title three times in a row, alongside Antonio Conte, Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp.

Postecoglou is the first Australian coach to work in the Premier League, but is only the second Australian to win the tournament’s monthly award, after goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer with the title of Best Player at Fulham in February 2010.

Postecoglou is the ninth Tottenham coach to be voted best coach of the month in the Premier League, after Gerry Francis (December 1994), Glenn Hoddle (October 2001, August 2002), Martin Jol (December 2004).

Postecoglou will face more difficulties next time when midfielder Van de Ven, midfielder James Maddison and striker Richarlison are seriously injured, having to sit out for several months.

Meanwhile, Mohamed Salah won the Best Player award for October in the Premier League.

Salah opened fire in all three matches in October, scoring twice in a 2-2 draw with Brighton, a 2-0 win over Everton and contributing a goal in a 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest.
