Liverpool forward Sadio Mane and manager Jurgen Klopp have been named Premier League Player and Manager of the Month for November.
The announcement was made on the Premier League’s official website on Friday.
Mane’s three goals and one assist helped Liverpool win all four matches during November to go eight points clear of Leicester City at the top of the table.
Mane, 27, kicked off the month for Liverpool with an all-action performance at Aston Villa, setting up Andrew Robertson’s 87th-minute equaliser before heading in the winner in stoppage time, he then scored against champions Manchester City and at Crystal Palace.
It is the third time Mane has won the award, adding to his triumphs from August 2017 and March of this year.
Klopp guided Liverpool to four wins from four in November and is only the second manager in history to pick up the award in three of the first four months of a top-flight campaign, after Pep Guardiola in 2017/18.
Commenting on the award, Liverpool manager Klopp said:”It feels really good. But I don’t take it personally. My players are responsible for that, obviously, because they have so far played an outstanding season.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
