Mo Salah had a quiet game today.
He didn’t receive much of the ball and his team-mates often left him isolated, but when it matters, the Egyptian King does the job.
In the final ten minutes, we were drawing 1-1 with the Eagles and in truth, the hosts looked more likely to find the back of the net.
But after good work from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain down the right, Andrew Robertson picked out our no.11, who sat down Mamadou Sakho, before calmly finishing with his wrong foot to make it 2-1.
The strike was his 37th of the campaign, and his 29th in the Premier League.
He’s equalled the record of 21 different games scored in already, with six matches to play.
Player. Of. The. Year.
In all the chaos that has transpired during this early kick, Mo Salah showed all the composure to sit Mamadou Sakho down, take a touch and finish.
37 goals this season. THIRTY SEVEN

Mental how time slows for Salah when he's in the box. The Egyptian God, nevermind King. Lad has special powers.

Sakho's falling as though his laces have been tied together. Salah has that impact on players. pic.twitter.com/lMKKvaHtyQ

Salah’s 84 minute goal drought comes to an end. Was getting worried for a second.

Salah has now scored the same or more goals than seven other Premier League teams. What a man.
