Chelsea striker Diego Costa has been named Barclays Player of the month and Swansea boss Gary Monk wins the Barclays Manager of the month award.

Diego Costa made a £32million move to Stamford Bridge during the transfer window and has scored four goals for Chelsea n his first three games as a Chelsea player. Costa enjoyed a brilliant last season with Atletico Madrid helping them to win the La Liga and reaching the finals of UEFA Champions League.


Diego Costa: “I’m very happy to win this award. It is important to begin well at a new club and I’m pleased with both my start to the season and also the team’s, which is the most important thing.

“I hope to continue scoring goals to help out the team and keep making our fantastic supporters happy. I thank my team-mates as they have helped me win this award.”

Former Swansea captain Garry Monk was named the manager of Swansea last season and his team has started the new season brilliantly winning their first three games of the season. Swansea won the first game of the season against Manchester United at Old Trafford.


Garry Monk: “It’s a collective thing as far as I’m concerned. It’s not just for me, it’s for all of the guys.

“It’s going well for us. We’ve had the international break so there has been a couple of weeks between games for us, so we’re starting fresh and we’re starting again really.”
