Six Liverpool players have been nominated for the 2022 Ballon d’Or.
Trent Alexander-Arnold, Luis Diaz, Fabinho, Darwin Nunez, Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk all appear on the 30-man shortlist for the prestigious individual prize.
The winner of the award, which is voted on by international journalists, will be revealed at a ceremony in Paris on October 17.
In a change of format, the vote is based on a player’s achievements during the 2021-22 season, rather than the calendar year.
