Ndidi played in all of Leicester City's league games and put in a decent shift in the middle of the park as the Foxes secured three consecutive wins in the English top-flight in March.

Wan-Bissaka, on his part, was a rock in the Eagles' defence winning all of his tackles against the opponents in all the four games he featured in while Mane who was named Liverpool Player of Month on Thursday, scored three goals in four league games for the Reds.

Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk won the award in February and his successor will be announced after the voting platform is closed on Saturday.
