"I have dreamt of winning this award since I was a child and now I have done so twice in a row," Salah said at a ceremony here on Tuesday.
"I'm proud to win it twice, I must thank my family and my teammates, and I dedicate this award to my country, Egypt", he said.
Although he started this campaign slowly following the summer's World Cup, at which he scored twice for Egypt, he has notched 16 goals in 29 appearances in all competitions for Liverpool so far this season.
That quartet were joined by Manchester United's Ivorian central defender Eric Bailly, Liverpool and Guinea midfielder Naby Keita, Manchester City's Algerian winger Riyad Mahrez and Tottenham Hotspur's Serge Aurier, who represents Côte d'Ivoire.
