Van Dijk is joined by several Reds teammates towards the top of the list, as Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Alisson all make the top seven.

Manchester City duo Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez finished ninth and tenth, respectively, with fellow Sky Blues representatives The later pair sandwich either Real Madrid's Eden Hazard, while other places in the top 20 were claimed by Matthijs de Ligt, Sergio Aguero, Roberto Firmino, Antoine Griezmann, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who shared the Premier League Golden Boot with 22 goals.
