Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah has been nominated for September’s PFA Fans’ Player of the Month award as a result of his performances.
Salah is one of six Premier League players shortlisted for the monthly award after scoring three goals in the month, reaching a milestone of 100 in the league.
The Egyptian will take on Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United), Antonio Rudiger (Chelsea), Ismaila Sarr (Watford), Ivan Toney (Brentford) and Mikhail Antonio (West Ham United).
Salah scored a goal in all three of Liverpool’s matches in the Premier Division of English football in September – he scored against Leeds United, Crystal Palace and Brentford.
The 29-year-old has been the star for Jurgen Klopp’s side since his arrival at the club and this season has been no different so far.
The team recently drew at Anfield with defending Premier League champions Manchester City after a pulsating second half.
Mo Salah was the star of the show for Liverpool and the fans named him their Man of the Match when the match ended.
Salah’s goal was a sight to behold as he danced past four defenders and shoved the ball past Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson to restore Liverpool’s lead, which failed to hold.
He received the ball a few yards from the edge of the City box and escaped a three-man press before entering the penalty area, staring at centre-back Aymeric Laporte.
He opened a space for himself to go past Laporte in view of a shot and fired one past Ederson to the delight of the 40,000 Liverpool fans in attendance.
It was a move he has made several times – against Tottenham in 2018 and Napoli in the season that Liverpool took home the Champions League trophy for the first time in 14 years.
Still, that’s what made it so special.
Fans can vote for Liverpool’s number 11 here and have until 11:59pm BST on Sunday to do so.
