Salah wins PFA Fans' Player of the Month

05 March 2018

Liverpool's Sadio Mane celebrates after scoring the second goal against Newcastle United, March 4, 2018.

They face a second-leg last-16 Champions League tie against Porto at Anfield this week, and go into the game with five-goal lead. He missed out on Friday night but has 19 goals in all competitions this season. Just to show what a odd result that 5-0 was: they'd scored 15 goals in their six Group matches.

Liverpool sensation Mo Salah has gone level with Kane on 24 for the season, with 2015 victor Sergio Aguero just three further back.

United will be wary of another in-form Liverpool player in Salah. "He's a top player". For a start, no other club has scored more Premier League goals in that time - apart from Manchester City, naturally. His technical ability as a former attacking midfielder allied to his athleticism has produced a fluidity in Liverpool's front three that is proving nearly impossible to stop.

A star turn against United won't be able to sway Eden Hazard, though, who said he picked his compatriot over his former Blues teammate because "Salah is more a striker than a player".

"The blend is superb".

If you view Oxlade-Chamberlain as Coutinho's direct replacement, Liverpool have made a £105m profit and got a player who is more suited to the team's style, as well as being a year younger.

The comments seem fairly innocuous, perhaps even laudatory of Coutinho's qualities, but something must have gotten lost in the translation, because Don Balon have reported that the Brazilian has been texting some of his former teammates in England to protest that he was merely playing the way the manager requested (good luck trying to reach Roberto Firmino in his above-ground hot-tub-slash-home-theater).

The 25-year-old has been winning all the plaudits and is in the running for the PFA Player of the Year.

The Brazil worldwide moved to Barca in January for £142m.

However, Neymar and Jesus have to overcome fitness concerns to be ready for Russian Federation and Tite hasn't ruled out changing his system to accomodate Firmino.

"It was a hard game, we knew it was going to be beforehand and we felt it during the game", Liverpool manager Klopp told BT Sport.
