Liverpool FC Player of the Season

The Liverpool FC Player of the Season award

The Liverpool FC Player of the Season award has been around since the 2001-02 season. Over the years, there have been a total of 12 different players who have won this award. Only three players have won this award on multiple occasions and they are Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho. Widely regarded to be the greatest Liverpool player of all-time, Steven Gerrard has won this award a record four times.
 

Mohamed Salah was the recipient of this award last season in addition to several other accolades he received. This season, Virgil van Dijk has a very good chance of winning this award. The Dutchman has been in sublime form for Liverpool throughout the season. His marshaling of Liverpool’s defence has been remarkable and has earned him a reputation for being one of the best defenders in the world. Van Dijk has a very good chance to become the fourth defender to receive the Liverpool FC Player of the Season award.

However, Sadio Mane’s recent run of form makes him a top contender to receive this award too. Alisson’s remarkable goalkeeping also makes him a top contender to become the third Brazilian to grab this award.
