Mane raked in an oustanding 41% of the votes to beat ''Premier League Player of the Season'' Kevin De Bruyne, who came second with 27% and fellow reds teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold in third (17%). Van Dijk, golden boot winner ''Vardy'' and Sterling finished fourth, fifth and sixth place respectively.

The former most expensive African player in history joined Liverpool in 2016 for a transfer fee of £34 million from Southampton.
