Liverpool players and boss up for Premier League monthly awards

The Premier League have announced their shortlists for the September awards.

Jurgen Klopp is one of five Premier League managers to have won all three games last month - he is joined on the shortlist by Pochettino, Wenger, Guardiola and Alan Pardew at Crystal Palace.

A Liverpool manager has not won the award since the 2013-14 season when Brendan Rodgers collected it twice.

Adam Lallana was named LFC's player of the month for September but is also one of the nominee's for Premier League Player of the Month.

Kevin de Bruyne (Man City), Son Heung-min (Spurs) and Theo Walcott (Arsenal) all equaled Lallana's goal-tally of 2 goals in the month. Everton's Romelo Lukaku completes the list - he scored 5 goals in his three games during the month.

Adam Lallana's goal against Leicester and Jordan Henderson's wonderful strike against Chelsea are also included in the 8 nominee's for Goal of the Month.

The public have been given a small say in these official awards this season - 10% of the weighting attached to the public vote - which ensures that the awards are still primarily decided by a Premier League panel.

Sadio Mane recently won the PFA Player of the Month award for both August and September in a 100% fan-voted contest.
