Chelsea manager Lampard scooped the manager’s award after his side recorded all three victories and secured maximum points in the month.

The Blues defeated Southampton 4-1, Newcastle 1-0, and Burnley 4-2 and further cemented their hold in the Premier League following a 2-1 win over Watford in November.

Christian Pulisic’s hat-trick at Burnley would be one of Lampard’s favourite moment in October and the United States international also made his first selection count with a goal against Watford.

Lampard’s men will be hosting Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge after his young side rallied back from three goals down to level the score at 4-4 against Ajax in the Champions League.

On the other hand, Leicester will be testing their title credentials when they welcome Arsenal to the King Power Stadium.
