Liverpool FC Player Form Guide: The Reds' best players in the last 6 games

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah was named Player of the Year by England's Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) on Sunday, becoming the first Egyptian to receive the award. "I've worked hard and I'm very happy to win it", Salah said at the ceremony last night.

"Also congrats to all the players who were [in contention with me] to win this award, because I think also they deserved it".

The former Chelsea player beat off competition from Manchester City's title-winners Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva and Leroy Sane with Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea and Tottenham striker Harry Kane completing the six-man shortlist of nominees.

The Egypt forward has hit 31 goals in 33 Premier League appearances since signing from Roma for an initial £36.9million (€42m) last June, equalling the record for the most prolific campaign in the division's 20-team history.

"You're comparing your name with some great names, " he said, on the prospect of breaking the record. "I want to break this record".

Henderson revealed that although at the beginning of the season the players thought Salah will be a good addition for Liverpool, he still exceeded their expectations.

With the Premier League campaign coming to a close, we witnessed another season of scintillating football, often produced by Manchester City and Liverpool, so it can come as no surprise that collectively the two clubs had four nominations up for the prestigious accolade. "But in the end, in summer time he will be at home being champion".

Meanwhile, Sane was named Young Player of the Year, beating Kane among others to the award.
