Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has been announced as the Football Writer’s Association’s (FWA) Player of the Year. Salah wins the accolade for the second time in his career. 

 

The 29-year-old is still the leading goalscorer in the Premier League during the time of writing, with 22 goals in 31 appearances.

Salah’s 13 assists is also the highest in the league, which shows his evolution under Jurgen Klopp as a creative outlet for the Reds. Moreover, his 8 goals in 10 Champions League starts have helped Liverpool to the semi-final stage of the competition, with only Villarreal standing in their way to another final. 


The Egyptian has seen a slight drop-off in his otherwise unstoppable scoring form since his return from AFCON following a heartbreaking loss in the final to Sadio-Mane-led Senegal, but recent fixtures have shown the winger could be getting back to his best. 

 

Salah’s first FWA award came after he took the league by storm in his debut season when his 32 goals for the Merseyside club broke the record for the most Premier League goals in a 38-match season.

 

Liverpool fans would hope the latest piece of personal silverware would encourage their talisman in the club’s push for an unprecedented quadruple.
