Pochettino and Forster claim awards


Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino and Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster have been named the Premier League Manager and Player of the Month for February.

Pochettino's Spurs defeated Norwich, Watford, Manchester City and Swansea during the month to move within two points of league leaders Leicester.

Forster, meanwhile, has been named player of the month just weeks after returning from a long-term injury.

The England international secured a fourth successive clean sheet when he produced a number of fine saves in the 0-0 draw with Arsenal at the start of the month and he followed up with strong performances against West Ham and Swansea.

"It’s obviously fantastic to win the award, but it’s just another incentive to keep working hard and work as hard as I can until the end of the season," Forster said.

"I’m obviously delighted to receive the award. Personally it was a good month for me, and as a team it was a great month as well.

"I think it was a good month all round. We put in a lot of good performances as a team with a good run of clean sheets.

"If you’re doing that then it’s easier to win games."
