Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been named the Premier League Manager of the Month for March after leading the Reds to the top of the table.

Klopp led his Liverpool team to three wins and one draw from four games in the month under review as the Reds maintained their charge for a first league title since the 1989/90 season (29 years and counting).

The former Borussia Dortmund and Mainz 05 boss saw off four other candidates to win the award.

The German tactician saw off title rival Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, Everton boss Marco Silva, Southampton manager Ralph Hassenhuttl and Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers.

Liverpool started the month of March with a goalless draw at the home of Merseyside rivals Everton before a comeback win over Burnley.

Relegation threatened Burnley took a controversial early lead through Ashley Westwood but Klopp and Liverpool were able to recover to win 4-2 at home.

Liverpool went on to beat two London clubs Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur to close out the month.

The Reds beat Fulham 2-1 away from home before recording the same scoreline in the last game of the month against North London giants Tottenham Hotspur.

Liverpool relied on a late mistake from Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris to take the three points.
