Joel Matip has been named EA SPORTS Player of the Month for February 2022, becoming the first Cameroonian to win the award.
The Liverpool centre-back played every minute and made an impact at both ends of the pitch as the Reds won all four of their matches during the month, closing the gap to champions and leaders Manchester City.
Matip contributed to three clean sheets, only conceding one goal in February.

In attack, he provided an assist with a clever nutmegged pass to Diogo Jota in a 2-0 win over Leicester City and then burst into Leeds United's penalty area to score with a sublime finish in a 6-0 triumph.
He topped a six-man January shortlist that also featured Che Adams, Ryan Fraser, Harry Kane, Ben Mee and Wilfried Zaha.
