Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has been named Barclays Manager of the Month, with Manchester City's Sergio Aguero earning November's player award.

Pardew, 53, secured three wins from four games and was awarded ahead of Chelsea's Jose Mourinho and City's Manuel Pellegrini, both undefeated.

Queens Park Rangers' Charlie Austin, Burnley's Danny Ings and Aguero each scored three times in November, but the Argentine, 26, picked up the honour.

It is the second time he has won it.
Aguero, now injured for four to six weeks, scored the winner against City's fierce rivals Manchester United in November and contributed two assists to add to his three goals.

His efforts helped keep City in touch with Premier League leaders Chelsea, while Pardew enjoyed a consistent run of form built on back-to-back wins his side secured in late October.

The Magpies' boss was the subject of heavy criticism and protests from Newcastle supporters earlier in the season, but wins the award for a third time, having been named Manager of the Month in November 2013 as Newcastle boss and in February 2006, while in charge at West Ham United.
