The 29-year-old wins the FWA award, which has been presented since 1948, for the second time having also been named the 2018 Footballer of the Year.
Liverpool and Manchester City players dominated the votes, with nine of Klopp’s squad receiving individual nominations and a total of six City players recognised.
22 + 13 – Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has both scored more goals (22) and provided more assists (13) than any player in the Premier League this season. His 35 goal involvements overall are at least 12 more than anyone else in the competition this term. Recognised. pic.twitter.com/kUtZzHar7r

The Women’s Footballer of the Year vote was open to the full FWA membership for the first time, with the award, which was introduced from 2018, having previously been decided by an expert panel.
Australian striker Kerr, who has scored 18 goals in the Women’s Super League to help Chelsea top the table, claimed 40 per cent of the vote with Arsenal’s Vivianne Miedema in second place and Lauren Hemp of Manchester City placing third.
Salah and Kerr, 28, are set to receive their awards at the Footballer of the Year dinner in London on May 5.
FWA chair Carrie Brown said: “Both Mo and Sam have been outstanding this season, breaking records for both club and country.
“As well as their performances on the pitch, they are leaders and standard bearers of excellence at their clubs and respective leagues.
“The fact they have won by such convincing margins underlines just how impressive they have been this season which has been recognised by our members.”
