Liverpool: VL's August 2016 Player Of The Month

Liverpool: VL's August 2016 Player Of The Month

Who has won the Vital Liverpool Player of the Month award for Premier League performances during August 2016?...

Liverpool have begun the 2016/17 campaign in much the same way as they've performed in previous seasons of late; inconsistently.

The joy of an exciting 4-3 opening day victory at Arsenal was quickly undone by a shock 2-0 defeat to newly promoted Burnley.

Jürgen Klopp's men rounded out the opening month by completing a full set of results with a 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

The redevelopment of Anfield's Main Stand meant the Merseysiders played all three of their Premier League matches away from L4 and they were also on their travels in the EFL Cup, where they defeated Championship side Burton Albion 5-0 to reach round three.

In League terms, Liverpool scored five goals but conceded six during August.

With no European football on the agenda, Klopp largely fielded the same side in the opening weeks of the season and what changes there were, were mainly enforced through injury.

The Vital Liverpool Player of the Month is determined by the individual MOTM awards cast for each Premier League fixture. In the event of no clear winner, the editor has the deciding vote.
