In at fourth was the Brazilian goalkeeper, who had a sensational 2018/19 season in his debut campaign with the Reds. The shot-stopper was an integral part of Liverpool's Uefa Champions League-winning campaign, as were his colleagues Salah and Mane, who followed him in that order in the ranking.
Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling was the only Englishman that made the cut, although he was unable to finish higher than 10th place, despite winning a domestic treble with the Citizens.
The 24-year-old struck 25 times and set up a further 18 goals for his club colleagues in 51 matches last season, and was named the PFA Young Player of the Year for his exploits in the Premier League. The rest of the ranking features two 2018/19 Champions League semi-finalists, as well as a Uefa Europa League winner – click through the gallery above to see them all!
