Liverpool defender Van Dijk was phenomenal last season under Jurgen Klopp. He beat Raheem Sterling and four others to claim the PFA Players' Player of the Year Award before helping his team beat Spurs in the Champions League final.

The 28-year-old made 59 appearances for club and country in 2018/19 campaign, and played more minutes than any other player.

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi proved yet again that he is one of the world's best, scoring 54 goals in 58 games for club and country last season.

He not only helped the Catalan giants to the Champions League semi-final, scoring the goal of the tournament against Liverpool with a stunning free-kick in the first leg, but he bagged 12 goals in Europe's biggest competition.

Messi was also La Liga's top scorer in 2018/19, with his 36 goals helping Barca lift the league title.

Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo certainly lived up to expectation after his £99.2m move from Real Madrid last summer, scoring 31 goals in 47 appearances for club and country.

The 34-year-old helped the Italian side to their eighth consecutive Serie A title and scored twice in the Champions League quarter-final against Ajax, scoring in both legs.
