Two Reds nominated for BBC African player of the year

BBC will announce the victor of this year's award on Monday, 11 December.

Borussia Dortmund and Gabon forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and RB Leipzig's Guinea midfielder Naby Keita make up the rest of the shortlist.

The BBC Sport and BBC Africa websites will also carry the announcement.

Chelsea right-back, Victor Moses, has been nominated for the BBC African Footballer of the Year for 2017.

The nominees were decided by Africa-based journalists and coaches and BBC staff.

The nomination follows another he received earlier this month for the African Footballer of the Year award, organised by CAF, the continent's governing body.

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.

His pace, explosiveness, composure and weekly electric display made Conte's Chelsea course a lot easier last season.

Last season, Moses helped his club to top the Premier League as well as notch an FA Cup runner-up finish.

On the global stage, Moses has been a key player for the Super Eagles who emerged as the first African team to qualify for next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Moses was a nominee back in 2013.

Egypt winger Salah has also impressed for club and country. He also helped Nigeria qualify for Russian Federation 2018. So far the 25-year old has hit an impressive seven goals in 11 appearances.
