Who has won the Vital Liverpool Player of the Month award for Premier League performances during October 2015?…

October was an eventful month in the history of Liverpool FC with charismatic German Jürgen Klopp appointed the club’s 20th manager.

His arrival, less than a week after the unceremonious sacking of Brendan Rodgers on October 4, created such a buzz that we even forgot to name September’s POTM, which for the record was Alberto Moreno (the Spaniard narrowly pipping Danny Ings)!

October started with five consecutive draws – three in the league and two in the Europa League – before the former Borussia Dortmund boss enjoyed his first win, at the fourth time of asking, against AFC Bournemouth in the Capital One Cup.

The overwhelming sense of optimism surrounding his appointment was emphatically reinforced by Saturday’s impressive 3-1 away league win against rivals Chelsea.

Overall, Liverpool completed October unbeaten, despite a host of injury issues, and their four Premier League fixtures produced three draws and one win; five goals were scored and three 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.
