Egyptian international Mohamed Salah has been snubbed for this year’s PFA POTY award as he was not shortlisted this year.
It would be recalled that the former AS Roma star won the individual award after his impressive performance last season with about 32 goals in 36 games, a feat that had no match.
This season, the star player has been able to drive home 19 goals but he has not been dim fit for the award because of his silent season in terms of performance.
However, he was replaced by Senegal international Sadio Mane who was listed alongside Liverpool central defender Virgil Van Dijk.
Meanwhile, the Reds team have been tipped to produce the winner this campaign for the second consecutive season but that will be largely determined by their will to win the English Premier League at the end of the season.
The Merseyside outfit are currently in the race and have been dimmed as favourites because of their fine form which has kept them second in the log after Man City were able to defeat North London outfit Tottenham earlier on Saturday.
Meanwhile, a title win for the Reds will make it the first the club in 29 years.
