Who has won the Vital Liverpool Player of the Month award for Premier League performances during April 2016?…

April was a dramatic month for Liverpool FC with some memorable fixtures taking place, not least the stunning 4-3 Europa League quarter-final second leg victory over Borussia Dortmund at Anfield.

In Premier League terms, the Reds were undefeated with three wins and two draws from the five matches they played. Better still, one of those triumphs was an outstanding 4-0 thumping of neighbours Everton in the second Merseyside derby of the season.

The month did end in a degree of frustration however as the Reds surrendered a 2-0 lead in a 2-2 draw with relegation-threatened Newcastle United before losing the first leg of their European semi-final with Villarreal.

Sadly, the dropped points against the Magpies, coupled with a defeat at Swansea City on May 1, have effectively ended any hopes of Liverpool mounting a late run at the top four.

During their five league outings, Jürgen Klopp‘s men scored an impressive 15 times and conceded just four.

Due to the number of games played in April – eight in total – the German rotated his side regularly and gave a number of squad and youth team players outings, which has made the outcome of this month’s POTM even more close and unpredictable than usual…

The Vital Liverpool Player of the Month is determined by the individual MOTM awards cast for each Premier League fixture. In the event of no clear winner, the editor has the deciding vote.
