Reflecting on March as a whole, he said: “We needed results and performances, and we got the results in various ways: in some games we had to react and push ourselves to the limit to get the results, and in other ones, we were really dominant and won the games with a bigger gap.

“Bournemouth was probably my favourite moment, with Reiss’ goal, that moment, that celebration, that hype we all had in the moment. But I’m especially pleased with the consistency the boys are showing every single day – the way they train, the way they behave and the way they are playing, and the willingness and hunger to keep winning and winning.”

It is Mikel’s fourth win from five nominations this campaign, and takes his overall tally to six during his time in charge of us – moving him to joint-ninth in the all-time standings.
He is now just one behind Jurgen Klopp’s record of five successes during a single season, which occurred during Liverpool’s Premier League title-winning season of 2019/20.
