Torres and Ferguson scoop awards

Fernando Torres has been named as the Premier League Player of the Month for September and Manchester United's Sir Alex Ferguson took the manager award.

Liverpool striker Torres scored five goals last month, including a hat-trick in his team's 6-1 demolition of Hull.

The Spaniard is the league's top scorer with eight goals so far this season.

Ferguson receives his award after steering the Red Devils to the top of the Premier League, winning every game during September.


Surprisingly, it is only the second time that Torres has won the accolade; Ferguson, in contrast, has been named Manager of the Month 24 times during his time at Old Trafford.

United have won every game since their surprise defeat by Burnley earlier in the season and are now leading Chelsea on goal difference at the top of the table.

Liverpool are third having scored the most goals in the Premier League, with Torres in red-hot form.
