Senegalese's three goals for league leaders earns Liverpool winger the award for a second time

Sadio Mane has been named the EA SPORTS Player of the Month for March.

The Senegalese winger has won the award after scoring three goals in four matches to help Liverpool go unbeaten during the month.

After a 0-0 Merseyside derby draw at Everton, Mane struck a brace in a 4-2 win over Burnley and then the opener in a 2-1 victory away to Fulham.

He also played the full match in the stoppage-time triumph over Tottenham Hotspur that meant Liverpool ended March ahead of Manchester City in the race for the title.

"It was a good month for me and the team," said Mane. "The dream of every player is to improve every season and so far I'm happy but I'm sure I can do better.

"All the team, the club, the supporters are fighting for the Premier League title so let's do it together."

Votes from the public on the EA SPORTS website were combined with those of the 20 club captains and a panel of football experts to decide the winner.

Mane topped a six-man shortlist also including Seamus Coleman, Andrew Robertson, Bernardo Silva, Jamie Vardy and James Ward-Prowse.

It is the second time the 27-year-old has won the award, adding to his August 2017 triumph.

He also makes it a Liverpool double of this month's awards after Jurgen Klopp was named best manager.
