Trent Alexander-Arnold, Luis Diaz, Fabinho, Darwin Núñez, Mohamed Salah, and Virgil van Dijk are the Reds who were named among the finalist for the trophy, which will be awarded in Paris on October 17th. Since the Ballon d'Or will be awarded in the middle of the season for most European clubs, voters (media members, coaches, and national team captains) will base their decision on players' performances from last season.
