Paul Merson believes that Mohamed Salah would be a worthy winner of the PFA player of the year award after his amazing Liverpool FC form.

The Egypt international has been in brilliant form since move to the Anfield club from Serie A side AS Roma in the summer transfer window last year.

Salah has scored an incredible 28 Premier League goals for the Reds so far this season to help them up into third place in the table.

The 25-year-old netted four times and set up the other goal in Liverpool FC’s 5-0 thrashing of Watford in the Premier League at Anfield last weekend.

Salah is clearly going to be one of the main contenders for the PFA player of the year award this season following his brilliant displays for the Merseyside outfit.

And Arsenal legend Merson feels that the Egypt international will continue to produce top form for Liverpool FC, even beyond this season.

Writing in his column for the Daily Star, Merson said: “Mo Salah is no Lionel Messi but he is my Player of the Year – and I don’t think what he’s doing at Liverpool is a one-off.

“Normally I would go for the best player in the best team – and that would be Kevin De Bruyne at Manchester City.

“But I just think De Bruyne has dropped off a bit recently and what Salah is doing is phenomenal. He’s going to win the Golden Boot playing on the wing. How many players ever do that?

“I think Salah is the best runner off the ball in the world. When he goes, he GOES. He bursts away from people.

“And to score 28 league goals already this season, playing where he does, is absolutely sensational. A lot of them he’s made on his own as well.”

Salah will be expecting to feature for Liverpool FC as the Reds prepare for their return to Premier League action next weekend and a trip to Crystal Palace.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are currently in third place in the table as they look to secure a top-four finish for the second season running under the German manager.
