Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has been nominated for February Premier League Goal of the Month award.

The 26-year-old scored a brace to help Jugen Klopp’s men claimed a 5-0 victory over Watford at Anfield on February 27.

His second goal in the game, a brilliant back-heel effort has been shortlisted for the best strike in the month under review.

Mane will slug it out with teammate Georginio Wijnaldum, Everton’s Andre Gomes, Southampton’s Nathan Redmond, Manchester United duo of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero and Newcastle United’s Fabian Schar to clinch the individual accolade.

This season the former Southampton man has scored 14 Premier League goals, thus making this term his most prolific in the English top-flight.

Mane is also in contention for the league’s Player of the Month prize for his scintillating showing.
