The Citizens won all four games in August, including a convincing 3-0 victory over reigning league champions Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium thanks to goals from Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and Fernandinho as they sent out a clear message to their title rivals.
After finishing second last season, Pellegrini’s side look eager to regain the title this year and are yet to concede a goal in their first four games of the new campaign as they have also registered wins over West Brom, Everton and newly promoted Watford.
The likes of David Silva, Yaya Toure and summer signing Raheem Sterling have been key in helping City sit at the top of the table and their form has rewarded Pellegrini with the first managerial award of the season.
