Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has been named the Premier League's Player of the Month for August, while Huddersfield Town's David Wagner won the manager's award.

Mane, 25, who has never won the award before, has been recognised after netting three goals in three games for Liverpool -- making him the Premier League's joint-top scorer this season alongside Romelu Lukaku.

The Senegal international's winner secured Liverpool a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace, while his goals also helped the club to a 4-0 win against Arsenal and 3-3 draw at Watford, leaving them second in the table.

"I want to say thanks to all of my teammates because without them I am nothing," Mane said. "I am happy with my start to the season. Everyone loves to score goals for their team, and it gives me more confidence."
