Georginio Wijnaldum was today named as Liverpool’s Standard Chartered Player of the Month for January after winning the fans’ vote in a poll on this website.
The Netherlands midfielder clinched 22 per cent of the total to claim the accolade for the first time.
In doing so, he beat Simon Mignolet (18 per cent) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (13 per cent) to the trophy.
In what proved a frustrating month for the Reds on the pitch, Wijnaldum made seven appearances during January, six of which were starts.
He scored one goal, which proved to be a crucial one as he headed home the equaliser against Chelsea in the 1-1 draw at Anfield on January 31.
