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

January was a frantic month for Liverpool with no fewer than nine fixtures taking place.

Despite securing a place in the Capital One Cup final, results were largely disappointing with the Reds losing their semi-final second leg to Stoke City and needing a replay to overcome League Two side Exeter City in the FA Cup.

In the Premier League, Jürgen Klopp‘s men won just one of the four fixtures they played and that required a dramatic 95th minute goal against Norwich City.

Meanwhile, one of the two defeats suffered was made all the worse for being at home to arch rivals Manchester United.

Despite drawing two blanks, the Merseysiders found the back of the net an impressive eight times in the other two matches. Unfortunately, this was eclipsed at the other end by conceding on 10 occasions during the four games.

Injuries and the busy schedule meant Klopp rotated his players on a regular basis but on two occasions one player romped to victory in our individual Man of the Match polls and subsequently claims the overall prize…

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.
