Egyptian winger claims the honour prior to final Premier League match of a dream debut season for Liverpool

Mohamed Salah has capped an outstanding campaign by winning the EA SPORTS Player of the Season award.

The Liverpool winger’s performances in 2017/18 wrote him into the record books.

His 31 goals make him the joint-highest scorer in a 38-match season, a record he can hold outright if he scores against Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday.

The Egyptian also became the first African to breach the 30-goal mark in a single campaign, and the only man to win three EA SPORTS Player of the Month awards in the same season.

Salah, who joined Liverpool last summer for his first Premier League spell since the 2013/14 campaign with Chelsea, said: "I am very happy, I am very proud to win it.

"They say I didn't have success here the first time, so it was always in my mind to have success here in the Premier League."

He won the award by receiving the most combined votes from a panel of experts, Premier League captains and fans via a public vote.

He topped a shortlist including Kevin De Bruyne, David De Gea, Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and James Tarkowski.

His EA SPORTS award adds to the individual honours Salah won from the PFA and the Football Writers Association this season.
