On Friday, it was announced that Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane had been named the club’s Player of the Month for January.
Mane held off competition from Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino to land the award for the first time this season.
The attacker – a 2016 arrival from Southampton – started all four of his team’s Premier League games in January, scoring in the 4-3 win over Crystal Palace and 1-1 home draw with Leicester City.
Mane is enjoying yet another strong season for the Reds, having scored 13 times in 32 appearances in all competitions, although just one of those goals has come in the Champions League.
The 26-year-old has also been in impressive form this month and the Liverpool fans will hope that the attacker can register against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon, should, as expected, he start at Old Trafford.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the adoring Liverpool supporters can be seen below:

Great player, awesome personality. Cheeky and shy at the same time. Cool looking. Wish I would spend an evening with him while playing Fifa or so ?
