Two Liverpool players have been nominated for the BBC's African player of the year award.

Other players to make the shortlist were Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, Chelsea's Victor Moses and RB Leipzig's Naby Keita.

The victor of this year's award will be announced on Monday 11 December, live on BBC World TV and BBC World Service Radio, starting from 17:35 GMT.

The Gabonese became the first African to top the Bundesliga scoring charts outright and only the fourth player in Bundesliga history to hit over 30 goals - a feat that helped him become the sole African on Fifa's Player of the Year shortlist.

Both Salah and Mane have been in great form for the Reds this season, with Salah making an instant impact since joining from Roma in the Summer.

Mane's fine form for Liverpool has carried over to the worldwide stage as the winger helped Senegal qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 2002. He scored three goals in qualifying and was named in CAF's continent-wide best XI.

Salah, who led the Pharaohs to the African Cup of Nations final before they finished runners up to Cameroon, racked up seven goals in his first 11 Premier League games this season, plus another five in six UEFA Champions League matches.
