So far, two Liverpool players are qualified to fight for the award of the best Premier League player, according to Sky Sports pundit Clinton Morrison.

According to the pundit, Senegal international Sadio Mane and defender Virgil Van Dijk have done well to contend for the award after an impressive season so far. The two Liverpool stars have been consistent in their fine form without any obstruction as a result of injuries or sort.

Virgil Van Dijk who left Southampton in January 2018 has been in sensational form for the Reds and has established himself as one of the best defenders in the league. He has been hailed for bringing the stability in the manager Jurgen Klopp’s defence. This is no doubt a major reason why they are able to challenge for the league title.

Also, Sadio Mane has been in fine form for the Reds team. The goal against Fulham makes it his 11th goal in his last 11 games for Liverpool to set a record of the highest Senegalese goal scorer in the Premier League per season.

So far, he has scored 17 goals in the Premier League and made 1 assist to make him the man of the moment for the Reds team.

Should Liverpool go ahead to win the league title, there is no doubt that Mane would be considered.
