Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been included on the six-man shortlist for the PFA Players' Player of the Year award.

The Egyptian joins Kevin de Bruyne, Leroy Sane, David Silva (Manchester City), David de Gea (Manchester United) and Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) in the running for the prestigious accolade – which is voted for by PFA members from the 92 Premier League and Football League teams.

Salah is enjoying one of the greatest debut campaigns in Reds history, having scored 39 goals since joining the club from AS Roma last summer.

This week alone, the No.11 netted a crucial equaliser at Etihad Stadium to help the Reds reach the Champions League semi-finals, collected his sixth LFC Player of the Month prize of the season, and set a Premier League record by claiming the division’s equivalent for a third time this term.

The PFA Players’ Player of the Year will be announced on Sunday April 22 during a special awards ceremony at Grosvenor House in London.

The last Liverpool player to take the honour was Luis Suarez in 2013-14.
