There are four players from UEFA Champions League winner Liverpool who made the top ten of the 2019 Ballon d'Or alongside Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
They are Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and goalkeeper Alisson,
Ronaldo did not attend the event in Paris, leading to speculation that one of Van Dijk or Messi will pick up the trophy.
Mane is also a dark horse for the award as he finished Premier League top scorer last season and is the club’s top scorer this term.
Alisson picked up the Premier League Golden Glove last season while Salah joined Mane at the top of the scoring chart.
However, the odds favour Messi who is in run for a record 6th Ballon d'Or trophy.
