Neville has been taken aback by the Liverpool star and says the Egyptian's ability to score on a regular basis puts him ahead of Manchester City's Belgian in the battle for the EA SPORTS Player of the Season award.
"It's phenomenal," Neville said. "I couldn't see 15 goals in Salah at the start of the season, never mind 40.
"We're in a period of time where you're talking about the best players in the Premier League: De Bruyne or Salah.
"Salah every game he keeps scoring he's edging closer to that title."
