Mohamed Salah shortlisted for Premier League Player of Season award
Salah has been putting in incredible performances in his debut Liverpool season as he netted 43 goals so far across all competitions with the Reds. He’s also leading the Premier League Golden Boot race with 31 goals, four ahead of second-placed Harry Kane.
The 25-year-old headed a six-man shortlist for the award up against Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City), Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), David De Gea (Manchester United) and James Tarkowski (Burnley).
Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante had collected the award for the 2016/17 season after beating competition from Eden Hazard, Cesar Azpilicueta, Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.
Salah has already collected a host of prizes on his debut season, with the Egypt international becoming the first ever player to win the Player of the Month award three times in a single season.
He also won the prestigious PFA Player of the Year award and Football Writers’ Association’s Footballer of the Year following his impressive form with the Reds.
The public vote accounts for 10 per cent of the overall result of the Premier League Player of the Season award, while the remaining 90 per cent will be based on the selection of a panel of experts.
