Liverpool enjoyed a fruitful 2018/19 season and as a result will have a few players in contention to win the most glamorous individual prize in football come the end of the year.

Most fans will have their own opinion on who deserves it the most but, for me, the Liverpool player most deserving is a toss-up between Van Dijk and Alisson.

History suggests that Messi will be the favourite as the last defender to win the Ballon d’Or was Fabio Cannavaro as he heroicly led Italy to a World Cup win in Germany in 2006.

Whether or not the Brazilian will win more votes than Lionel Messi or Bernardo Silva or even Raheem Sterling remains to be seen.

It says a lot about how good Liverpool were last season the top five best performing players for the year is dominated by Reds.

But then again, so was Alisson Becker.

Between Van Dijk and Alisson, very little separates them but given how much silverware has counted for in the past, it seems likely that the Brazilian will win more votes than his Dutch teammate.
