The Barclays Premier League have announced their Manager and Player of the Month Awards for September -- and, to no one's surprise, given Arsenal's incredible form during September, Arsene Wenger and Aaron Ramsey have been honored.

For Wenger, it's the 13th time he's won the award, according to Sky Sports' writeup of the double honors -- in a month where the Gunners moved from 12th place to 1st place in the Premier League standings by winning all four of its matches -- part of a six-matches-and-counting unbeaten streak.

Arsenal fans know that Ramsey's been bossing the midfield and scoring when he wants of late; he scored four goals in the team's four league matches last month, helping bring him to an astounding 8 goals in 11 matches for all competitions. Wenger had plenty of nice things to say about Ramsey in the Sky Sports article, including:

I always thought he would score goals if he improved his technical quality. When you watched the games, you saw him always in good positions in the box. When he got the chances he missed sometimes but he has improved tremendously on that. He has a great engine, a great spirit and has an obsession, he always wants to be better. That is, of course, a very good ingredient.

This is the second straight month that a player and manager from the same team were selected; Brendan Rodgers and Daniel Sturridge were honored for Liverpool's Suarez-less August.
