Liverpool: VL's December 2016 Player Of The Month

Liverpool: VL's December 2016 Player Of The Month

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

As it invariably is, December was a hectic month in the footballing calendar with Liverpool fulfilling no fewer than six Premier League fixtures.

After three months without a defeat, the Reds began the month with a shock loss at AFC Bournemouth before following it up with a frustrating home draw against West Ham United.

Jürgen Klopp's men responded in spectacular fashion though to record four consecutive victories over the festive period, including in high-profile matches against neighbours Everton and fellow title contenders Manchester City.

The month featured 14 goals scored and 7 conceded, with three clean sheets kept, and concluded with Liverpool remaining in second place in the standings.

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.
