Klopp has been named Manager of the Month, while the in-form Mane took Player of the Month.
The Reds continued to keep up their winning streak, in doing so retaining pace with rivals Manchester City as the Premier League season reaches a thrilling climax.
Sadio Mane has been named Premier League Player of the Month for his efforts in March
Senegal international Mane emerged as the league’s form player in March, scoring three times in four appearances and helping to ease the burden on team-mate Mohamed Salah.
Mane struck a double in the 4-2 victory over Burnley, before opening the scoring in a crucial 2-1 victory over Fulham in west London.
Mane edged out teammate Andy Robertson, as well as Seamus Coleman, Bernardo Silva, Jamie Vardy and James Ward-Prowse to take the honour.

It is the second time the 27-year-old has been awarded the trophy, having previously won it in August 2017.
Liverpool last had a player win the prestigious monthly award back in December, when defender Virgil van Dijk came out top among his peers.
German manager Klopp picks up the March award after leading his side to three wins and a draw during the month to maintain their challenge for the title.

It is the third time Klopp has been named manager of the month since his appointment as Anfield boss in October 2015 and the second this season, having also won it in December.
The decisions were made via a public vote combined with a panel of three experts.
Liverpool return to action on Sunday, when they welcome Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea to Anfield for a 4.30pm kick-off.
