Liverpool duo named Premier League manager and player of the month

Intro

Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp and Virgil van Dijk have been named as Premier League’s manager and player of the month for December.

The pair scooped the award following a stellar month for the Reds during which they won all seven of their Premier League fixtures to take over from Manchester City at the top of the table.

Four of those wins came with clean sheets, while Van Dijk scored the Reds’ second goal in the 2-0 win at Wolves prior to Christmas.

The Dutchman also becomes the first defender to named the Premier League’s player of the month for almost six years since Tottenham’s Jan Vertonghen in March 2013.
