Joel Matip is the February 2022 Player of the Month of the English Premier League.
The centre-back was a standout performer as Liverpool collected maximum points in the league with victories over Leicester City, Burnley, Norwich City and Leeds United.
He thus becomes the first Cameroonian to win the award since 1994.
Matip played every minute for the Reds, providing an assist against Leicester, helping claim three clean sheets and scoring a fine goal in the 6-0 defeat of Leeds at Anfield.
His form saw the No.32 selected as the Premier League’s Player of the Month, the first time he has taken the accolade since joining Liverpool back in the summer of 2016.
Matip emerged as the winner from a shortlist that also included Che Adams, Ryan Fraser, Harry Kane, Ben Mee and Wilfried Zaha.
Matip is also the second Liverpool player to win the award this season after Mohamed Salah won the October 2021 edition.
