Mo Salah has been sublime this season.
Largely from the right-wing, the Egyptian has notched 21 Premier League goals, which makes him the competition’s top scorer, and four in the Champions League, with a semi-final on the horizon this week.
But for some reason, our no.11 was not included in the Premier League Team of the Year or even nominated as one of the Player of the Year nominees.
Bernardo Silva, with seven goals and seven assists, was – while Paul Pobga bizarrely made the TOTY – with Manchester United fans even agreeing that his inclusion was absurd.
Independent journalist Miguel Delaney has pointed out on Twitter that Salah’s goals have been by far the most important in terms of actual points earned out of ourselves and City, too.
The 26-year-old’s efforts have directly got us 24 points, over double those of Sergio Aguero, the Argentine forward who did make the TOTY and has one less than Mo in the PL so far.
Of course, none of this matter will to the player or his fans if Liverpool collect either the Premier League or the Champions League.
In a few weeks; time, we’ll know.
On account of Aguero's goal, went looking for who in this title race has scored the most decisive goals – ie, final equalisers, or goals to finally put your team ahead.
