Mohamed Salah was crowned the Premier League’s Players’ Player of the Year on Sunday, beating out strong competition from Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne.

The Egyptian has scored 41 goals in all competition this season. He matched a Premier League record tally for a single season by scoring his 31st league goal of the campaign in a 2-2 draw at West Brom on Saturday.

Salah has also netted seven times in eight Champions League games, including in both legs of Liverpool’s 5-1 quarterfinal thrashing of City, to carry his side to a first semifinal for a decade.

Leroy Sane won the Young Player of the Year.

Sane, another City teammate David Silva, De Bruyne, Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea and Tottenham striker Harry Kane were the other five nominees for the main prize.
