The Whoscored website has selected Liverpool striker Mohammed Salah as best player in the Premier League’s Best Formation XI after Salah rattled in his 13th and 14th league goals of the campaign in the victory against Southampton (4-0) at Anfield on Saturday.
Whoscored named Salah as a man of the match with a 9.50 rating, the best in the 25th round of the Premier League.
The best formation was H.LLoris (Tottenham), J.Tanganga (Tottenham), A.Rudiger (Cheslsea), Y.Mina (Everton), A.Wan-Bissaka (Manchester United), J.Grealish (Aston Villa), J.Henderson (Liverpool), P.Billing (Bournemouth), M.Salah (Liverpool), R.Firmino (Liverpool), G.Murray (Brighton).
Salah made history by becoming the first Egyptian player to win the Confederation of African Football’s player of the year award in January 2018 for the second year in a row.
He was also the first Egyptian to get his portrait displayed at the world cup exhibition in June 2018, and the world-famous Madame Tussauds museum in London also announced that the Egyptian footballer will be getting his own wax sculpture.
In 2019, Time Magazine listed Salah as one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World,” and that same year, he won Liverpool’s Goal of the Decade title with his goal against Tottenham Hotspur in February 2018.
Earlier in December, Salah was also named the fifth-best player in the world by the magazine France Football as part of the prestigious Ballon d’Or awards, football’s greatest individual prize.
