Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has been nominated for the Premier League Player of the Month for November award.

The 27-year-old delivered outstanding performances for Jurgen Klopp’s men to help them win all four their league games last month.

The Senegal international scored three goals, including his match-winner against Aston Villa and provided one assist.

Mane will slug it out with Leicester City’s duo of Caglar Soyuncu and Jamie Vardy, as well as Tottenham Hotspur’s Dele Alli and Son Heung-min, Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Raul Jimenez and Sheffield United’s Lys Mousset.

Mane, who has nine Premier League goals this season, will hope to clinch the award for the third time, having won it in August 2017 and March 2019.
