The Dutch defender has played in all of Liverpool's 35 league games this season, helping the Reds to a league-best 19 clean sheets.

The 27-year-old signed for Liverpool from Southampton in January 2018 for £75m, a transfer fee his performances have vindicated, with Liverpool losing just one Premier League game so far this season, against Manchester City in January.

Speaking after receiving the award Van Dijk said: "It's pretty difficult to put into words.

"I think it's the highest honour you can get as a player to get voted player of the year by the players you play against every week. It's special. I'm very proud and honoured to receive it.

"If you see the shortlist and quality there is, it's very special that the players in the league voted for me.

Van Dijk pipped team-mate Sadio Mane, City trio Sterling, Sergio Aguero and Bernardo Silva, and Chelsea's Eden Hazard to the award, becoming the third defender to have ever won the prize in Premier League history.
