Salah scores three goals and makes two assists in five games
Mohamed Salah has been named Liverpool’s September Player of the Month.
“Salah has been named Liverpool’s Standard Chartered Player of the Month for September,” the club announced on its website today. Salah topped the fan vote on the Liverpool website, ahead of Dominik Sobosler and Alisson Becker,” the club announced.
Salah said: “It feels good to help the team win games. Overall, everything is fine. I’m happy with the results we achieved in September. Every time I receive an award from the fans, I feel their love and support. It makes me very happy,” he said.
“It’s a good start. All the players are off to a good start. As a team, we are performing well and trying to win the most important matches. We had some good results in September. It’s really important to start the season well. When you start the season well, you have a good vision and everything becomes easier during the season,” he said, assessing Liverpool’s start to the season.
Liverpool is off to a great start this season. They currently sit in fourth place in the league with six wins, two draws, and one loss. The game against Tottenham went badly. Luis Diaz scored the first goal, but it was ruled offside due to a miscommunication between the video assistant referee (VOR) and the referee. Two men were then sent off, leaving them outnumbered, but they held firm. However, Joel Matip’s own goal just before the end of the game cost them the game. Liverpool hasn’t lost a game since the opening day, except for the defeat to Tottenham.
Liverpool has been a dominant force in the European Football Association (UEFA) Europa League (UEL). The Reds are in Group E alongside Toulouse, Saint-Gilles, and LASK Linz. The Reds have won both their first and second round matches to top the group. The Reds will play their UEL Group E third leg at home against Toulouse on Saturday at 4pm.
Much of Liverpool’s early-season cruise is thanks to Salah. Salah was strongly linked with a move to Saudi Arabia this summer, but opted to stay. This season, Salah is still the centerpiece of Liverpool’s attack. He’s still a formidable goalscorer, but he’s also creating chances for his teammates. Salah has seven goals and four assists in nine games and is second on the team in scoring.
Salah had a perfect September. He had three goals and two assists in five games. When narrowed down to league play, he had two goals and two assists in four games. Salah created 11 chances in four league games in September. Salah was nominated for the Premier League (PL) September Player of the Month award for his performances. As the only Liverpool player to be nominated for the PL September Player of the Month award, it was a no-brainer that he was Liverpool’s September Player of the Month.
