Mohamed Salah’s stunning Liverpool campaign continues with Premier League award

15 December 2017

Mohamed Salah has been named the Premier League‘s Player of the Month for November, after the Liverpool winger scored seven goals in four games.

Salah struck braces against West Ham, Southampton and Stoke City, as well as the opener in the Reds’ 1-1 draw with his former club Chelsea.

This saw the No. 11 nominated for the English top flight’s monthly award alongside Robbie Brady, Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Eden Hazard and Shkodran Mustafi.

And it was announced on Friday morning that the Premier League‘s leading goalscorer was also the standout player for November.

Salah is the first Egyptian to win the award, with club captains, experts and supporters voting in droves to acknowledge his performances last month.

Speaking on receiving the award at Melwood, Salah told “It’s a good feeling.”

“Each month I want to score many goals and help the team to win games,” he said.

“That month, I scored seven goals and it’s a good feeling, but for me the most important thing is the result and we had good results that month.”

Salah was also given the club’s Player of the Month award, his third of the season so far, and Goal of the Month for his volley in the 3-0 win over Stoke.

The 25-year-old has scored 19 and assisted six in 25 appearances for the Reds since joining from AS Roma in a £36.9 million deal in June.

His next goal in the league will be his 14th, making him the first Liverpool player to score more than 13 in the top flight since Luis Suarez in 2013/14.
