Liverpool Supporters Hilariously Hijack Lazio's Player Of The Season Poll

Having been up there with Europe's elite strikers after scoring an incredible 41 goals in 47 appearances for Lazio in all competitions in 2017/18, you would have thought Ciro Immobile would be an absolute shoo-in to win Lazio's Player of the Year award.

In Serie A, he finished the campaign as joint top scorer alongside Inter Milan talisman Mauro Icardi. Both bagged 29 across the season but the Italian contributed nine assists compared to Icardi's one and also managed a goal every 93 minutes on average.

The Rome outfit missed out on the final Champions League spot in agonising circumstances in the final game of the season against Inter, but Immobile can be proud of his stunning individual campaign.

Yet somehow, he looks set to miss out on the club's fan-voted Player of the Year award and it's all down to Liverpool fans.

Reds' favourite Lucas Leiva moved to Lazio in the summer after 10 years of service at Anfield.

After joining from Gremio, the Brazilian went on to make 346 appearances and built up a special kind of rapport with the club's fans.

Evidently, that relationship remains because Liverpool fans have been hammering the votes for Lucas to win the Player of the season award - he's currently won 71 per cent of the votes compared to Immobile's 14 per cent.

With only an hour left on the poll, there's no way he's not coming out on top.

I had always thought that Arsenal fans that Arsenal fans were the kings of Twitter polls but clearly the Gunners have some competition....
