November was a particularly fruitful month for Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian forward scored seven goals in four matches for Liverpool. He’s been the talk of the town and the league. Now the powers that be have taken a notice as well. And they’ve handed the nicest man in football a nice, little trophy. Premier League Player of the Month.
“Each month I want to score many goals and help the team to win games,” said Salah at Melwood, award in hand.
“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’s tally for November includes three braces. West Ham United, Southampton and Stoke City all conceded two goals to Liverpool’s newest sensation. Chelsea weren’t as permitting, surrendering just the one.
It’s an impressive short list to top. Those other players up for the Mr. November award were Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, Manchester United’s Ashley Young, Arsenal’s Shkodran Mustafi and Burnley’s Robbie Brady.
“For me, I’m always saying we have to win something for ourselves, for the fans, for the team.
“For me as Mohamed, I want to score many goals to help the team win titles.”
For me as Matt, I think that sounds wonderful. Salah has scored thirteen goals in the league already, five more have come in the Champions League, with a total of six assists in all competitions. He’s certainly been helping the team this season and long may that continue. Liverpool just might need a few more of him before we can talk titles, though.
