- This is the first time a player has even won the award three times in one season
- During his three games in March, Salah scored six goals and got three assists
- Salah needs six more goals to break the all-time Premier League record
Once again, Mohamed Salah has been voted in as the Premier League Player of the Month, earning him his EIGHTH special card on FIFA 18 with more probably on the way – making him the sole fastest player in the game.
The Egyptian international has been having an incredible season for Liverpool and he has already broken one record as he is now the first ever player to win the award three times in one season.
And he could break another, with a current tally of 29, Salah needs to score six more goals in his remaining five games to break Alan Shearer and Andy Cole’s record of most goals in a Premier League season.
His new card on FIFA 18 Ultimate Team looks ridiculous, bumping up the winger to a 93 overall. His last PotM card had 98 pace, meaning he was the joint fastest player on the game with Team of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, his new card gives him 99 pace which is the highest possible rating and leading him to being the sole owner of the record. On top of that, the card has 96 dribbling, 93 shooting and 91 passing – this card is going to be an unstoppable force.
Salah is undoubtedly deserving of the award but he had tough competition as Romelu Lukaku, David Silva, Son Heung-min, Cenk Tosun, and Chris Wood were also in the voting.
But this isn’t the first time Salah has won a poll, his exceptional performances resulted in nearly 80% of FIFA fans wanting to see him as FIFA 19’s cover star.
