4 Sadio Mane
Mane’s stunning progress at Liverpool has won him plenty of plaudits in the past 12 months.
The 27-year-old registered a career-best of 26 goals and five assists in 50 appearances to help Liverpool win the Champions League last season.
While Mane shared the Premier League Golden Boot with team-mate Salah and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Arsenal.
He also led Senegal to the final of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, where they lost 1-0 to Algeria in the end.
Now Mane, who finished fourth in the 2019 Ballon d’Or poll, will look to continue his stellar form into the New Year.
