The Egypt worldwide undoubtedly deserved the award after a masterclass of a performance as Liverpool beat Bournemouth 4-0 at the Vitality Stadium.
The 4-0 win extended Liverpool's unbeaten streak to 17 league games, equalling the club's all-time record.
Overall, Liverpool manager Klopp could be satisfied with the manner in which his side eased their way to victory ahead of the midweek Champions League meeting with Napoli.
"Even if they lost a few games, we saw the games and it was always really hard work for the opponent". I enjoyed the last one the most. "As I said before, the most important thing is that we are top of the table", he added.
The Egypt global had not scored in three games before Saturday's game, but took the match ball home as Liverpool equalled their record of 17 Premier League matches unbeaten.
Milner reflected this in his own assessment, though the veteran-who turned out at right-back on Saturday-didn't agree that it was Liverpool's best display of 2018/19 so far. Only one player in Europe has more league strikes since the start of last season: Lionel Messi.
Every celebration was very low-key from the Liverpool No.11, in particular the second goal he scored in the 48th minute.
'But we do believe we'll be a slightly different team without him but still we could be an effective team.
The Reds cruised for much of the game as they looked in total control and in reality the result was never in doubt.
"You shouldn't be surprised about Salah's desire [to score goals], that's great for us and it's just brilliant what he did [not going down after Cook's challenge]".
"He would probably say he is OK but I think it is responsible we have an eye on that". We will see what we will do but we have other options of course. We beat Everton 3-1 home and away in my first season at Liverpool and the noise at Anfield was unreal, so it was always going to be bedlam when Divock Origi hit the victor.
"Top of the table, scored three goals, fantastic win today and a clean sheet". How we defended in the centre, the centre-half alone can do nothing, the goalie alone can do nothing - sometimes a lot but nobody can perform wonders, so you need all these boys around.
