Mo Salah’s season gathered in numbers
The Egyptian wins the PFA Player of the Year
Liverpool star Mo Salah most probably reached the peak of the season yesterday despite the season is not ready yet. The Egyptian won the PFA Player of the Year after an incredible debut season for Liverpool. Such is the brilliance of this season that he managed to beat Premier League winners Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva for the award.
Today, we will show you a compilation of numbers that formed Salah’s mind-boggling season up until now.
Back in summer, Liverpool agreed the fee of €39million with Roma including variables. Initially, many thought that Liverpool overpaid for Salah. But fast-forward to this day, that amount is actually peanuts!
Mo Salah has been involved in 66 goals; either scoring or assisting. After calculations, the number 11 is involved in a goal every 66 minutes during the Premier League games.
From the 19 Premier League teams, Salah either scored or assisted against 18 of these teams. The only team he didn’t have any input in this aspect was Manchester United.
Before returning to the Premier League, Salah had another Premier League stint with Chelsea. Strangely enough, the Egyptian only registered 13 league appearances.
It took Salah only 57 minutes to score in the league. This goal game against Watford at Vicarage Road. On that day, Liverpool drew 3-3.
The winger’s longest goal streak. It occurred between the FA Cup tie against WBA on January the 27th and the league match against Newcastle on March the 3rd. He scored for seven consecutive games in all competitions.
The number of times Salah won the player of the month along this season. These awards came in November, February and March. The three awards made Salah the first player to win three in one season.

The same Bournemouth goal made Salah the first African to score 30 goals in one Premier League season.
