Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has been named the winner of Reach Sport's inaugural Premier League Fans' Player of the Year award.

Tens of thousands of supporters cast their vote from the top seven performers in England’s top division this year.

And Salah came out as No.1, edging out Aston Villa ace Jack Grealish into second while Manchester United star Marcus Rashford came third.

Salah’s Liverpool team-mates Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mane, and Virgil van Dijk were all in contention for the gong.

As was Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne, who came fourth following your votes over the past three weeks.

Salah has been in fine form this season having previously helped Liverpool to their maiden Premier League title.

The Egyptian came off the bench on Saturday to score twice against Crystal Palace and take his tally for the season up to 13 in the Prem.

He is the current top scorer in the league, two ahead of Jamie Vardy, Son Heung-min and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Salah recently said on his chances of winning a third golden boot: “I don't know. I don't want to say that for now. But, yeah, I'm always trying to score goals to help the team to win the game.

“There's a good chance to be a third time top scorer again. But the most important thing is to win something, to win the big trophies with the team. That's the most important thing.
