Dzeko named Player of the Month

Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has been rewarded for his fine start to the new season by being named Barclays Player of the Month for August.
Dzeko, 25, has scored six goals in City's opening three fixtures, including four against Tottenham in a 5-1 win at White Hart Lane last weekend.
The Bosnia and Herzegovina international had a slow start to his career in England after his £27million move from Wolfsburg in January but is now starting to repay that fee as he leads the City attack.
Sir Alex Ferguson was handed his 26th manager of the month award after guiding Manchester United to victories over West Brom and Tottenham, as well as the 8-2 hammering of title rivals Arsenal.
The 69-year-old United boss is approaching his 25th anniversary at the Old Trafford helm and has started the season well as he goes in search of a 13th Premier League title.
