Liverpool’s Mohammed Salah has won the EPL player of the month award for March 2017/2018. The Liverpool forward has been in exceptionally scintillating form for the Reds. To win the award, he defeated the likes of Tottenham’s Son Heung-min, Manchester United’s Romelu Lukaku, Manchester City’s David Silva, Everton’s Cenk Tosun and Burnley’s Chris Wood.
There was also awards for Sean Dyche (Burnley) for manager of the month. Dyche guided Burnley to three wins out of three in March, with victories over Everton, West Ham and West Brom.Also, Jamie Vardy won the award for goal of the month of March. He scored a first-time volley in a 4-1 win at West Brom from a long pass that dropped over his head.
EPL Player Of The Month Award For March
To win the award, Mohammed Salah has been very impressive. He was the top scorer in the league last month with six goals. The 25-year-old netted his first goal of the month in a 2-0 win over Newcastle on March 3, before adding four to his personal tally in a 5-0 win over Watford at Anfield on March 17.
The Egyptian then equaled Didier Drogba‘s record for the most goals scored in a Premier League season by an African player, 29, after netting a dramatic late winner against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on March 31.
Salah has now picked up three Player of the Month awards this season following his successes in November and February, the first person to ever do that. Also, becomes only the sixth player in Premier League history to have been awarded the honour in consecutive months – following in the footsteps of Robbie Fowler, Dennis Bergkamp, Cristiano Ronaldo and more recently Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy.
What Else Could Happen?
Mo Salah still has some records to break. And given his form and barring any injury, he is in a good spirit anc can achieve that. He hopes to surpass the record for most goals scored in a 38-match PL season, jointly-held by Alan Shearer (1995/96), Cristiano Ronaldo (2007/08) and Luis Suarez (2013/14), with 31.
He could also end the season with the EPL player of the year award. He is in a two-way battle with Kevin De Bruyne.
Congrats Mo Salah for the Player Of The Month Award For March.
