Neville: Salah edges De Bruyne for player award

16 Apr 2018

Liverpool star's 'phenomenal' numbers have him ahead of Man City's Belgian for player of the season, says Phil Neville

With every match and with every goal he scores Mohamed Salah is edging ahead of Kevin De Bruyne to being named the best Premier League player of 2017/18.

So believes Phil Neville after Salah reached 30 goals in the Premier League this season during the 3-0 win over AFC Bournemouth.

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."
