Premier League Player of the Month Award

Luis Suarez (unsurprisingly) gets Premier League award

No surprises as another personal award is delivered to Liverpool's world class striker.

Henderson, Suarez and Allen celebrate the reds first goal

Liverpool's Luis Suarez collected the Player of the Month award for December 2013 - a month which saw him score 10 goals, to take his tally for the season to 20.

Suarez smashed in FOUR goals against Norwich at Anfield.

Less than three days later he scored TWICE at home against West Ham, before another DOUBLE away at Tottenham Hotspur.

He helped Liverpool go top of the league for Christmas with another TWO goals against Cardiff in front of the Anfield crowd.

Luis becomes the second Liverpool player to win the award this season - Daniel Sturridge picked up the gong back in August.

This is the first time Suarez has collected the Player of the Month award.

Liverpool's Steven Gerrard has collected the prize five times - a club record.
