Joel Matip, a Liverpool defender was named Premier League Player of the Month for February.
The defender who teamed up with Virgil van Dijk in the back conceded just one goal in four matches and kept three clean sheets.
He becomes the first Cameroonian to ever win the award, which was richly deserved after a stellar month in which he played every minute of Premier League football.
However, Matip stood out for more than just his defensive qualities and showed what he is capable of during those matches.
Matip took home the award ahead of fellow nominees Che Adams, Ryan Fraser, Harry Kane, Ben Mee, and Wilfried Zaha.
