Anyone watching Liverpool in September will have no trouble understanding why Mohamed Salah has made the short list for PFA Fans’ Player of the Month.
He scored three goals in September, including his 100th league goal. Those represent half of the six goals he’s scored in the first seven matches of the league season. So far in this nascent season, Salah is tied with Jamie Vardy for the most goals. Add to that his Champions League tally, and it’s nine goals in nine games for the talented Egyptian winger.
Salah is one of six players on the short list, and fans can vote for him here.
Salah is likely on everyone’s mind because of the stupendous individual goal that he scored to put Liverpool temporarily ahead in their match against Manchester City on Sunday. He’s also in the news for less positive reasons because of his ongoing, three-month and counting contract negotiation with the club.
His performance so far this season has proved his point about his worth and will certainly make the rest of the negotiations interesting.
