London - Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has been named the Premier League manager of the month for August.

Pellegrini's side have won all their four games, including an impressive 3-0 win over champions Chelsea, and have also scored 10 goals, more than any club in the league.

City are also the only club this season to have not conceded a single goal in their campaign.

The club, who finished eight points behind Chelsea last season, have already been tipped as favourites to win the title but Pellegrini said such talk was premature.

"We are very pleased with the start but we are not thinking about what we are going to do at the end of the season," the 61-year-old Chilean told the club's website (www.mcfc.co.uk).

"The highlight was the way we played. It's important to continue the style of football; the team won the four games in the way I like to play.

"If we think that because we won the last four games we are going to win the next one, we are going to make a big mistake."

Crystal Palace will look to end City's 100% record when Pellegrini takes his side to Selhurst Park on Saturday.

The match kicks off at 16:00.
