Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been named the Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year.

Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne came second with Tottenham striker Harry Kane third.

Salah, 25, has scored 31 goals in 34 league appearances for Liverpool this season.

The Egypt star - the first African winner of the award - also won the Professional Footballers' Association player of the year award in April.

Chelsea and England forward Fran Kirby won the inaugural FWA Women's Footballer of the Year award.

Salah has scored 43 goals in all competitions after signing for £34m from Roma in the summer.

The ex-Chelsea and Basel winger netted twice in the first leg of Liverpool's Champions League semi-final tie with his former club Roma at Anfield last week.

Jurgen Klopp's side travel to the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday for the return leg with a 5-2 lead over the Italians.
