Mohamed Salah once again finished the season as the Premier League’s top scorer, rubbishing claims he was a one-season wonder.

The name has been slung in Salah’s direction after his astonishing debut season for Liverpool last year, netting 44 goals.

He broke Alan Shearer’s Premier League scoring record for a single season and turned out some truly remarkable performances.

Many doubted that he could do the same this season, Salah has proved them wrong in triumphant fashion.

True, he may not quite have hit the astonishing heights of last season, but that would’ve been something quite extraordinary.

He has had more peaks and troughs in performance levels this season but has still made a monumental contribution.

Yet Salah has once more been the talisman of a wonderful Liverpool season and has been so incredibly important to Klopp.

He’s proved himself as a big game player, with match-winning  goals domestically against Chelsea, Huddersfield and twice against Brighton.

Then in Europe, there’s been pivotal goals coming against Napoli and Porto and assists against the likes of Bayern Munich.

All of this equates to another stunning season of goal contributions, with Salah being directly involved in 39 goals.


Then there’s another side to his game that’s grown in stature this season, and that’s his work-rate and defensive contributions.

Salah has made 40 tackles and 17 interceptions this season, more than doubling his contributions on last season.

He also made more clearances, headed clearances and blocked more shots this season compared to last.

All of this, combined with Salah’s obvious drive and hunger to play for the team, proves his defensive worth too.

He also poses a huge threat with his movement, pace, trickery and intelligence to be able to split defences.

That’s not to mention that he’s capable of world class moments of brilliance, like his long-range screamer against Chelsea.

It doesn’t take a genius to see that Mohamed Salah has more than proved his worth again this season.

And after costing Liverpool just £37.8 million from AS Roma, he looks to be one of the all-time great bargains.
