Chelsea star Deco and Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate have been named the Premier League's player and manager of the month for August respectively.
Deco has made an instant impact following his £8m move from Barcelona.
And Southgate's side are currently sixth in the table and a point behind leaders Chelsea after winning two of their opening three league matches.
It is the first time Southgate has claimed the monthly prize since taking over at the Riverside Stadium in 2006.
Boro beat both Tottenham and Stoke City 2-1 at home, although they lost at Liverpool by the same scoreline.
Southgate becomes the only person other than Stuart Pearce to win both the player and manager of the month awards during their career, having been named player of the month in January 2000 while with Aston Villa.
