Rafa Benitez and Steven Gerrard have been named as the Premier League Manager and Player of the Month for March.
The Reds enjoyed a superb month, winning all three of their league games as well as demolishing Real Madrid 4-0 in the Champions League.
Liverpool started the Premier League month with a 2-0 victory at home to Sunderland, before securing a superb 4-1 win at title rivals Manchester United.
They rounded off March with a resounding 5-0 thrashing of Aston Villa at Anfield, with star midfielder Gerrard scoring a hat-trick to take his tally during the month to six in all competitions.
"I'm pleased because it shows we are playing well, scoring goals and getting good results," Benitez told the club's official website.
"It also shows that behind the scenes the staff are working really hard. We have got ourselves into a good position, but now we have to keep going."
