Former Liverpool striker Rickie Lambert believes that Mohamed Salah can beat Kevin De Bruyne to the PFA Player of the Year award. 

The Egytian has had an incredible season as he joined the ranks of legends Ian Rush and Roger Hunt as the only players who scored 40 goals in a season.

Salah is going head to head with Manchester City’s midfielder for the PFA Player of the Year award, which will be handed out on Sunday. He has already been named in the Premier League Team of the Year alongside De Bruyne.

Lambert belives that Salah deserves to be voted as player of the year, referring to him as a “superstar,” saying, “Without a doubt [Salah should win the PFA Player of the Year award]”

“Two months ago, I think De Bruyne and him were level, but let’s be honest that Salah has gone ahead, especially with the amount of goals and the level that he is playing at.”

Lambert went on to voice his support for Salah, saying that he would be “very, very surprised” if Salah does not win the award, especially since De Bruyne has had a “little dip” in performance.

“Salah is a superstar. I just hope that obviously Liverpool keep hold of him. I think he can be a hero in Liverpool, I think the relationship that he has with the fans, he can’t get anywhere else.

“To see Liverpool doing so well at the minute, it is good to see. Some of the football they are playing at the moment is the best in Europe,” Lambert concluded
