Salah becomes the first Liverpool player to win the award since Luis Suarez in 2014, receiving the votes from his fellow professionals on his debut season at Anfield.
The Egyptian’s 41 goals in all competitions so far this season made him a frontrunner for the award, along with De Bruyne who has been influential in City’s league title success.
Liverpool’s Previous PFA Player of the Year Winners:
Luis Suarez – 2014
Steven Gerrard – 2006
John Barnes – 1988
Ian Rush – 1984

The former Chelsea and Roma man was joined by captain Jordan Henderson at the awards ceremony, along with his agent and several members of Liverpool’s backroom staff, including director of football Michael Edwards who was vital in recruiting Salah last summer.
