Mohamed Salah is the fastest player on FIFA 18 after being named Premier League Player of the Month AGAIN

Salah has been voted the Premier League Player of the Month for a record breaking third time
  • 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.

This has earned Salah his eighth special card on FIFA 18, making him the fastest on the game

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.

Mohamed Salah is Your Premier League Player of the Month November 2017

The Liverpool Offside. Dec 15, 2017

It was a November to remember for Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.

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.

Mohamed Salah creates Premier League history with March 2018 POTM win

Liverpoolfc, 13th April 2018

Mohamed Salah’s six Premier League goals in March have earned the Liverpool forward the division’s Player of the Month award for the third time this season – a new record for the competition.

The Egyptian retained the honour after half-a-dozen strikes in four appearances increased his overall league tally for 2017-18 to 29 as he chases the Golden Boot in his debut Reds campaign.

Salah opened the scoring in a 2-0 victory over Newcastle United, bagged four of Liverpool’s five – and set up the other – as Watford were thrashed at Anfield, and hit the winner against Crystal Palace on the final day of the month.

He claimed the accolade ahead of Romelu Lukaku, David Silva, Son Heung-min, Cenk Tosun and Chris Wood.

It is the first time a player has ever won the award three times in the same season.

Mohamed Salah today received the Standard Chartered Player of the Month award for September 2017

Liverpoolfc, 12th October 2017

Mohamed Salah returned to Melwood on Thursday morning to collect his second Standard Chartered Player of the Month award of the season – and was adamant Liverpool are ready to fight to improve upon their recent run as they reconvene following the international break.

Fresh from his heroics in helping Egypt secure a place at next year’s World Cup finals for the first time since 1990, the No.11 picked up the Reds’ star man accolade for September.

Salah tallied 41 per cent of the vote on Liverpoolfc.com, seeing off competition from Philippe Coutinho (23 per cent) to claim the prize for the second month running.

September ultimately proved a largely frustrating month for the Reds with just one win in seven matches stretching into October, but with Manchester United next up this Saturday lunchtime, the forward was eager to outline why he and his teammates are determined to get back on track.

“I have to say thank you very much to the fans and I am happy to win it,” Salah said upon being presented with the trophy at Melwood. “But now we have to keep fighting and improve our results a little bit.

“It’s a big game on Saturday, everyone in the world will watch the game. It’s a big game for us too because we have to keep fighting and improve our results, as I said. I hope we can get the win.

“We always fight in each game, but this game is a big game and can make a difference for us. We have to improve our place in the table. We have to fight and try to win the game.”

Mohamed Salah collects Standard Chartered Player of the Month prize for October 2018

Liverpoolfc, 22nd November 2018

Mohamed Salah today received the Standard Chartered Player of the Month award for October after being voted the team’s star man by Liverpool fans.

After the month began with defeat in Naples and a stalemate against Manchester City, the No.11 was an integral figure in three successive wins for the Reds.

Salah coolly scored the only goal of the Premier League clash with Huddersfield Town before bagging two in the Champions League win over Red Star Belgrade, which brought up his half-century for the club in a record-breaking 65 appearances.

The Egyptian then netted one and created two to help Liverpool defeat Cardiff City at Anfield as they maintained an unbeaten start to their league campaign.

And Salah’s efforts were enough to take the majority of votes in a poll of supporters on Liverpoolfc.com, ahead of Xherdan Shaqiri in second and Georginio Wijnaldum third.

“It was not a bad month [for me], but I’m already looking forward to the next game,” he said after receiving the award at Melwood on Thursday.

“I’m happy with the results so far – with the team’s results firstly and my goals second; to score a goal to help the team is always something I like to try to do.

“We’ve started the season very well. All the players have put in great performances, so we have to carry on like this.”

Three of Salah’s four goals came at Anfield during the month, including the aforementioned 50th for the club overall.

It was a feat the Egyptian achieved quicker than any other player in Liverpool’s history, meaning he surpassed the mark previously set by Albert Stubbins (77 matches).

“I’ve said before in interviews, it’s always a good feeling to play and score at Anfield,” Salah said. “The record I have at home is great and I really enjoy playing at Anfield a lot.

“I’m looking forward to reaching 100 goals for Liverpool! Let’s see what happens, but there are many targets to try to aim for before then – first to try to win something for the club, to achieve something and continue winning games.

“Those things are more important than 100 goals.”

Klopp and Virgil Van Dijk named December 2018 Barclays Manager of the Month

English Premier League, 11th January 2019

Jürgen Klopp and Virgil van Dijk have today been named as the Premier League’s Manager and Player of the Month for December.

The pair were presented with their prizes at Melwood on Friday in recognition of Liverpool’s outstanding end to 2018.

The Reds won all seven outings in the division to move to the top of the table, with 22 goals scored and three conceded.

Van Dijk figured in each of those fixtures, helping the team to four clean sheets and also netting his first top-flight strike for the club in the 2-0 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Klopp beat Nuno Espirito Santo (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Manuel Pellegrini (West Ham United), Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham Hotspur) and Maurizio Sarri (Chelsea) to the accolade.

Meanwhile, Van Dijk saw off competition from teammate Mohamed Salah as well as Felipe Anderson (West Ham United), Eden Hazard (Chelsea), Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United) and Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur).

Klopp was last named Premier League Manager of the Month in September 2016. It’s the first time both awards have gone to Liverpool since March 2014 when Brendan Rodgers scooped the manager gong and Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard jointly accepted the player prize.

Klopp and Van Dijk win Premier League awards for December

Winning the Premier League Manager of the Month award represents the ‘icing on the cake’ of a fruitful December for Jürgen Klopp.

Liverpool’s boss received the accolade on Friday having led his side to victory in all seven of their top-flight matches throughout last month.

The Reds scored 22 times and conceded just three during those games, with that impressive record leading Klopp to describe December as ‘special’.

“It’s nice, the icing on the cake,” he said, upon being presented with the prize.

“It was a very successful but difficult month. Each game felt like the most important one of the season. It was unbelievable. The intensity was massive but that’s what made it a special month.”

Klopp also saluted the efforts of his backroom team without whom, he insisted, such success would not be possible.

“One hundred per cent teamwork. I know a few things about football but my best skill is to bring really good people together,” he continued.

“I lead that group, that’s true, and I have to make final decisions but I can only make good decisions if the information I get is brilliant.

“With the group I have here, if you can mix up the potential of the group with the best attitude you can get and you get quality. That’s what we did in December.”

The Liverpool boss guided his team to a perfect start in their opening four matches of 2019-20 with wins over Norwich City, Southampton, Arsenal and Burnley.

That run secured the monthly accolade for Klopp, who saw off competition from fellow nominees Pep Guardiola, Roy Hodgson and Brendan Rodgers.

The Liverpool boss was also named Manager of the Month in August and September, and has now collected the prize on six occasions since joining the club.
