Van Dijk & Sadio Mane are both up for EPL Player of the Month

As the season comes towards it's ultimate climax, having more than one player up for monthly awards is usually a good sign that your team is doing the right things.

In Liverpool's case, we have both a centre back and an attacking player up for the award - Sadio Mane and Virgil Van Dijk.

Both players have been pivotal in Liverpool's form this season which sees them currently sitting top of the Premier League.

But while the form stuttered in the past couple of months, at times, Mane was a constant source of goals and, ultimately, inspiration while his team mates went off the boil.

Having managed to score 4 goals in February, Mane was a standout for the Reds and scored some hugely important goals.

Meanwhile, Van Dijk was at the centre of the Reds defence in a few wobbles that saw the team drop a few points but claw their way to the top again as February ended with a bang. He also added a couple of goals himself against Watford on Wednesday.

Both players would be more than worth the award. Particularly as they're up against Luke Shaw (stop the laughing!), Sergio Aguero, Sean Longstaff, Ashley Barnes, Wilfriend Zaha and Paul Pogba.
