the Senegal international was in a brilliant form last month, scoring three
league goals in four games, including his brace against Burnley to help the
Reds continue their charge towards the league title. The 26-year-old will slug
it out with teammate Andy Robertson, Manchester City’s Bernado Silva, Leicester
City’s Jamie Vardy, Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse and Everton defender Seamus
Coleman for the individual prize.
Southampton man who was named the Reds Player of the Month on Thursday is also

in the English elite division in 31 appearances and 20 in all competitions.
