Salah Becomes First Egyptian Ever to Win Premier League Player of the Month Award

EGYPTIAN STREETS. DECEMBER 15, 2017

For his outstanding performance during November, Egyptian football star and Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been rewarded with the EA Sports Player of the Month Award, the Premier League announced on its website.

After scoring seven goals in just four matches, Salah becomes the first ever Egyptian to win the award in Premier League history.

“Thank you for voting me player of the month in November,” Salah said in response to the announcement.

“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,” he added.

“Each month I want to score many goals and help the team to win games.”

Salah netted two goals in each of Liverpool’s victories against West Ham United, Southampton and Stoke City, and scored one goal in the 1-1 draw with Chelsea.

Salah, the Premier League’s top scorer with 13 goals this season, received the most combined votes from fans, Premier League captains and a panel of experts, beating six other contenders for the award.

The Egyptian joined the Liverpool team in June and has since made headlines in England and across the world after scoring 20 goals in 24 appearances with his new team.

Prior to joining Liverpool, Salah spent two seasons in Roma where he scored 29 goals in 65 Serie A appearances.

Last week, he won the BBC African Footballer of the Year for 2017, beating his Senegalese Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane and Borussia Dortmund Gabonese forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang..

Burnley’s Robbie Brady, Manchester City duo Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling, Ashley Young of Manchester United, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi were also nominated for the Premier League Player of the Month Award.

Mohamed Salah has been crowned Premier League player of the month for November 2019
  • Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah is the Premier League’s top scorer so far this season
  • The Egypt international has scored 13 goals in the Premier League already
  • The 25-year-old said: ‘Each month I want to score many goals and help to win’

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been crowned Premier League player of the month for November after scoring seven goals in four matches.

The 25-year-old is the leading scorer in the Premier League with 13 goals so far this season.

Upon being presented with the award at Liverpool’s Melwood training ground, Salah said: ‘Each month I want to score many goals and help the team to win games.

‘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 seven goals came against doubles against West Ham, Southampton and Chelsea while also netting in Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against Chelsea.

He has scored 20 goals in all competitions for Liverpool this season, his first at Anfield following his £39million summer transfer from Roma.

Salah is in line to feature for Liverpool at Bournemouth on Sunday as Jurgen Klopp’s side look to hit back after drawing their last two games against West Brom and Everton.

But Liverpool boss Klopp warned before the 0-0 draw against West Brom that Salah may need to be left out of the starting line-up for a rest due to a minor hamstring concern.

‘I took Mo Salah off as he had a hamstring a little bit,’ Klopp said after the Everton match. ‘Everyone said “how can you take him off?” I don’t go out and say “Yeah, but he is close to being injured’. He isn’t at the moment, thank God.’

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.
