The 25-year-old saw off competitions from Manchester City's trio of Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane and David Silva, Tottenham's Harry Kane and Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea to become the first Liverpool player to claim the accolade since Luis Suarez in the 2013-14 campaign.

Meanwhile, the social media has been awash with praises for the Egyptian who becomes the second African footballer to win the award after Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez in the 2015-16 season.
