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.
