Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has been named as the Premier League’s Player of the Month for October after registering five goals and four assists for the Reds.
The Egyptian forward was in scintillating form for Jurgen Klopp’s side, scoring in every single league game bar one in October bar one – including a hat-trick in a 5-0 win at Old Trafford.
It is the first time the 29-year-old has won the award this season, with the winger beating the likes of England trio Ben Chilwell, Phil Foden and Declan Rice to the prize.

As well as his treble at Old Trafford, which saw Salah become the first player to ever net a hat-trick at the home of Manchester United in Premier League history, the Egyptian scored wondergoals against Watford and Man City last month.
The Liverpool man netted a goal or an assist in every single Premier League match in October as Jurgen Klopp’s side continued their title bid.
It is the fourth time Salah has won the Premier League Player of the Month award during his time at Liverpool, with the Egyptian collecting his first prize early on in his Anfield career in November 2017.
Salah then picked up back-to-back editions of the award in February and March 2018.
