Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have been named on a five-man shortlist for the BBC African Footballer of the Year award.
The Reds make the cut after both enjoying outstanding 2017/2018 seasons as part of a fearsome attacking trio at Liverpool.
Salah is currently the holder of the accolade after being recognised for his superb contributions with both Roma and Liverpool over 2017.
The Egyptian racked up 44 goals across all competitions for Jurgen Klopp’s side last season, finding the net 32 times in the Premier League to win the Golden Boot and break the record for the highest tally in a 38-game campaign. Mane meanwhile registered 20 goals as the pair played an instrumental role in leading Liverpool to another top-four finish and a spot in the Champions League final.
Both have seemingly carried their scoring form into the current campaign, with Salah’s eight goals across all competitions making him the club’s top scorer ahead of Mane’s seven.
Reds can cast their vote on the BBC Sport website by clicking here. The voting will close at 8pm on Sunday December 2, before the winner is revealed on Friday December 14.
Moroccan defender Medhi Benatia is also up for the award after winning the league with Juventus again, as is Senegal’s Kalidou Koulibaly on the back of his outstanding season with Napoli. Ghana’s Thomas Partey is the final nominee thanks to his rise in the Atletico Madrid team.
All bias aside, it’s a Liverpool man’s to lose.
