Fans had already selected the No.10 as their standout player in October, December and January and he earned a fourth award by picking up the February prize.

The 22-year-old has now clinched further recognition for April, after claiming 58 per cent of the total votes cast in our online poll to see off closest challenger Simon Mignolet.

The midfielder also acknowledged the significance of earning recognition from supporters for the fifth time this campaign. 

"I’ve always said I’m grateful to our supporters and to the club. I’ve had a great reception from the fans from day one, which makes me feel comfortable to do my job on the pitch," he continued.

"I’m very happy at Liverpool and supporters play a big part in it – not only for me but for all the squad. They’re always behind us there at Anfield – that has a huge significance for us."
