Three stars up for Liverpool’s Player of the Month after mixed March for the Reds
A promising start to March ended in misery for Liverpool as they followed back-to-back wins with back-to-back defeats – and their hopes of silverware ended.
Liverpool kicked off March with a hard-fought 2-0 win over Wolves thanks to goals from Virgil van Djik and Mohamed Salah.
However, their standout moment of the month will go down in history when they thrashed bitter rivals Manchester United 7-0 at Anfield.
Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez and Salah all scored two goals apiece while Roberto Firmino grabbed a late goal in Liverpool’s biggest ever win over United.

However, Klopp’s men were quickly brought back down to earth in their next two games.
They produced a meek performance on the south coast to lose 1-0 to relegation battlers Bournemouth.
Then Liverpool went down by the same score at the Bernabeu when they were thumped out of the Champions League 6-2 by Real Madrid in the last 16 stage.
We want to know who was the standout for Liverpool during the month.
Based on these four games, the Echo’s writers have whittled the choices down to a three-man shortlist and now is your chance to have the final say.
Things may not be going the way Liverpool fans expected this month, but when consistency is needed, there are few places to look than the Brazilian goalkeeper. With 13 clean sheets this season, five of which have come within the last month, the Brazilian remains a standout when others in the squad could only be lamented for enduring an average month. His performance against Real Madrid showed how Alisson continues to lead by example.
Goals may not be flowing the way the Egyptian managed last season, but Salah has proven to be just as much of a threat on a good day. Salah, who has scored four goals and provided three assists in the past six league games, overtook Robbie Fowler to become Liverpool’s all-time Premier League goalscorer in stunning fashion as he wreaked havoc in the 7- 0-beat over Man United and proved that he is still the attacking threat that the league should fear, with two goals and two goals.
After opening his account against Everton with a tap at the back post in February, the Dutch star looks set to settle into life on Merseyside. He showed his class, ability to play in different roles and a real eye for goal in an electric performance in the demolition of Man United. The 23-year-old set Liverpool on their way before linking up well with Salah to score his second just after the break. It seems that he is the no. 10 role can make his own in a powerful Reds attack force.
