Mohamed Salah’s lively performance against Sevilla in midweek has been rewarded with the Champions League Player of the Week award.

The Liverpool forward collected 51 per cent of the vote on UEFA’s website to claim the prize after a deflected goal against the La Liga side capped an impressive display.

Salah saw off competition from Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Neymar (Paris Saint-Germain), Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United), James Rodriguez (Bayern Munich), Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Taison (Shakhtar Donetsk) and Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) to pick up the accolade.
