It has long been expected that Mo Salah will make up the contenders for this season’s PFA Player of the Year award and his inclusion among the six-man shortlist has now been confirmed.
The Egyptian international is the only Liverpool player to feature among the prize-chasers but is expected to battle it out with Kevin de Bruyne for the honour.
Along with Salah and de Bruyne, Leroy Sane, David Silva, David de Gea and Harry Kane make up the candidates to win the accolade – which is voted for by PFA members from each of the teams in the Premier League and EFL up and down the country.
Salah has scored 39 goals since arriving at Anfield last summer which leaves him on course to surpass the 42 Cristiano Ronaldo amassed for Manchester United in 2007/08; when the Red Devils won the Premier League and Champions League and the Portuguese superstar was awarded the Ballon d’Or.
The winner will be announced on Sunday April 22 at Grosvenor House in London and Reds fans are in no doubt who they think should scoop the big prize…
