Klopp was awarded the prestigious Manager of the Month gong after guiding the Reds to victories over Sheffield United, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Wolverhampton Wanderers, West Ham United and Southampton, with his side conceding only once along the way. 

January's award sees Klopp claim the honour for the fifth time this season, which is a new Premier League record by any manager in a single campaign, surpassing the four awards Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola won in 2017.

The German tactician has now claimed the monthly accolade on eight occasions in total (the most-ever by a Liverpool manager), with only David Moyes (10), Arsene Wenger (15) and Sir Alex Ferguson (27) winning more often.

Klopp has won the award in all but one month in this campaign, the only exception being Chelsea boss Frank Lampard's victory in October, and looks certain to claim the Manager of the Year crown at the end of the season.
