Who has won the Vital Liverpool Player of the Month award for Premier League performances during December 2014?…

Liverpool underwent a slight upturn in fortunes in Premier League terms during December, losing just once.

Unfortunately that defeat was against arch rivals Manchester United and it came just five days after the club were dumped out of the Champions League by FC Basel following a disappointing 1-1 home draw.

The Reds won three of their six league fixtures during the month, drawing two, and were particularly impressive in dismantling manager Brendan Rodgers‘ old side Swansea City 4-1 at Anfield.

They also secured a League Cup semi-final against Chelsea by overcoming Championship pacesetters AFC Bournemouth 3-1 away.

December produced 10 league goals but seven were also conceded.

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.

Vital Liverpool’s Player of the Month for December 2014 is
