The winner for this month has been decided – and it’s not Mohamed Salah, much to the obvious dismay of Liverpool fans everywhere.

No, Cristiano Ronaldo was the victor.

We are teaming up with our continental network of journalists to find the best player in Europe, and Ronaldo is the latest monthly winner.

As always, our experts nominated the two best players from each of the ‘Big Five’ leagues (Premier League, Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A, Ligue 1) – and it was up to you to vote for the European Player of the Month.

Each monthly winner will receive 10 points, second place gets 9 etc – and these will count towards the overall season ranking.

So, congratulations Cristiano!
