After a promising October, Liverpool hit their stride in November, demolishing Manchester City on the road and clinching advancement to the knockout stages of the Europa League. There was the small matter of their first stumble under Jürgen Klopp, a home loss to Crystal Palace, but even in that match the Reds were the better side.

From beginning to end, there were strong performances across the board, and as a result there is no clear favourite to take home player of the month honours this time around. There's still at least a slight favoutire, though, and it's a slight surprise to find the player leading the way match-to-match in November was young winger Jordon Ibe.

Ibe made the top five in voting for four of November's five matches and was named man of the match twice, earning 13 points in the process. Close on his heels is Roberto Firmino, who has shown why Liverpool paid nearly £30M for him over the past month. He earned a single man of the match award and finished with 12 points overall.

Rounding out voting for November is a strong slate consisting of Lucas Leiva, Nathaniel Clyne, Philippe Coutinho, and Alberto Moreno. That quartet earned 10, 10, 8, and 7 points in voting last month respectively, with five points awarded for being named man of the match by TLO readers through to one for finishing fifth in post-match voting.

Whoever wins this month will join Mamadou Sakho, who was named player of the month for Klopp's first month in charge, narrowly beating out Lucas Leiva to the honour. Danny Ings won player of the month honours for September and Clyne was named August's player of the month.
