Mohamed Salah (EGY, Liverpool)
After the Africa Cup of Nations, Mohamed Salah struggled to put together a run of games with that electrifying spark despite being in outstanding form over the first half of the season.
Nevertheless, he still finished the Premier League with the most assists and goals, so it wasn’t all awful. He could have been able to lead Liverpool when they were on the verge of a quadruple in some of the key moments.
Riyad Mahrez (ALG, Manchester City)
Sadio Mané (SEN, Liverpool then Bayern Munich)
All season long, Sadio Mane was just behind his former Liverpool colleague Mo Salah, but it may be his successes on the international scene that help him win the Ballon d’Or.
Senegal defeated the Pharaohs once more in their World Cup qualifier after Mane netted the game-winning penalty against Egypt in the Africa Cup of Nations championship match. Mane might finish second behind the clear favorite Karim Benzema since he defeated Salah to win the African Footballer of the Year award.
Sébastien Haller (CIV, Ajax then Borussia Dortmund)
