Arsenal's Arsene Wenger and Jose Reyes have won the Barclays manager and player of the month award for August.
Last month the Gunners beat Everton, Middlesbrough, Blackburn and Norwich and are currently top of the Barclays Premiership on goal difference, having
scored 16 goals in four games.
Wenger's side re-wrote history by breaking Nottingham Forest's 42-match unbeaten run, set by Brian Clough's men in 1977, with the 3-0 victory over
Spaniard Reyes, who broke the club's transfer record when signed from Sevilla for 17.5million last season, has settled in quickly at Highbury.
He is currently joint top scorer in the division alongside team-mate Thierry Henry, on four goals.
