The trio of Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp; forward, Diogo Jota; and defender, Conor Bradley have done a clean sweep of awards in the Premier League in England.

Klopp was named Manager of the Month for January after Liverpool won all three matches in the month under review.

It is the 10th time the German has won the award during his nine-year spell at Anfield

DDM gathered that Jota won the Player of the Month Award. He scored three goals and bagged 2 assists in January.

The 27-year-old has stepped up impressively in the absence of Mohamed Salah due to AFCON and injury and has been crucial in Liverpool’s title push.

Youngster, Bradley, 19, won the Professional Footballers Association Player of the Month, with a goal and three assists in January.

The Reds are currently top of the table, two points clear of both Man City and Arsenal as they aim to end Klopp’s tenure in perfect fashion.

In January, Liverpool won three out of three in the league, beating Newcastle, Bournemouth and Chelsea.
