Mohamed Salah has been crowned as the Premier League Player of the Year after a remarkable debut season with Liverpool.

The Reds winger has found the back of the net 31 times in 31 Premier League starts for Jurgen Klopp’s side – equalling the record of Luis Suarez, Cristiano Ronaldo and Alan Shearer.

He pipped Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane to the award, along with the Kevin De Bruyne and Belgian’s team-mates Leroy Sane and David Silva as well as Man Utd stopper David de Ge .

Salah is the seventh Liverpool player who has won the award, with Terry, McDermott, John Barnes, Ian Rush, Keny Dalglish, Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard.

Despite there being six nominees, this year’s edition was largely viewed as a two-horse race between Salah and De Bruyne.

Man City attacking midfielder has been the heartbeat of Pep Guardiola’s side who have stormed to the Premier League title, foudning the back of the net eight times while providing 15 assists in the process.

But despite City’s dominance in the league, Salah has scored 31-goals and creater 9 chances to his teammated and was honoured as the best player in the Premier League.

The pair were both named in the PFA Team of the Year alongside with Harry Kane and foud City players.
