Mohamed Salah wins Premier League Player of the Month award for March

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been named Premier League Player of the Month for March after continuing his excellent form for the Reds.

Salah, who also scooped the PFA Player of the Month award for March, was the top scorer in the league last month with six goals and took the award ahead of fellow nominees Son Heung-min, Romelu Lukaku, David Silva, Cenk Tosun and Chris Wood.

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 equalled 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 former Roma and Chelsea forward 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.
