Mohamed Salah has been named October’s PFA Premier League Fans’ Player of the Month after excelling for Liverpool.
Salah has earned his second-straight PFA Fans’ Player of the Month award, having previously won September’s prize following his excellent start to the campaign.
Such were the quality of his performances, he beat out Erling Haaland, James Maddison, Callum Wilson, Bryan Mbeumo and Declan Rice to claim the award.
The Egypt international sustained his form from September for Jurgen Klopp’s men to push the club up the table, scoring five goals in three games.
Salah began October by rallying the Reds from a 1-0 deficit against Brighton and Hove Albion. He brought Klopp’s side level with a crisp-left footed strike cancelling out Simon Adingra’s opener before notching a second from the penalty spot. His brace earned Liverpool a point in an entertaining 2-2 draw at the Amex Stadium.
The 31-year-old then took centre stage in the Merseyside derby at Anfield. Salah proved to be the match-winner for the Reds against Everton. He broke the deadlock from the penalty spot, and then settled the contest in stoppage time with another precise strike on his left foot.
Salah rounded off the month by finding the net in Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest at Anfield, notching a vital third goal to end the game and extending his scoring run at home to five-straight league matches.
