5. The history is in his favor:
May it be any historic award or significant award, it is more than frequently seen that the player scoring most goals normally has had the chance to get the award more. N’golo Kante was probably the odd one out when he managed to win the PFA Player of the year award without having scored many goals. But the history is inclined to make Salah win the award this year.
- Salah is on a roll breaking the records:
It has been one hell of a season for the former Roma man playing for Liverpool in the Premier League this season. He has already become the first player to win the Premier League player of the month three times, become the top scoring Egyptian in the league, most left footed goals scored in the league and many such records have been broken by Salah in this single season. It speaks volumes of his work this season and gives him a better chance to win the award.
- Better player compared to the other contenders:
There are some very good players who stand as competitors to Salah for the PFA player of the year award. One of the best among them is Kevin De Bruyne, who has arguably been one of the best midfielders in the league this season. But what stands out Salah from the rest of the contenders is that he has always done well when the players have gone head to head against each other, which gives the Egyptian a big edge.
- A brilliant transformation:
Salah had a time to forget when he used to play for Chelsea in the Premier League but after joining Liverpool from Roma, the Egyptian has improved to great levels. His touch has been simply amazing, his presence of mind has been sharper than ever and most importantly his efficiency in front of the goal has gone to the highest level. His influence has had a huge impact on Liverpool’s performances and results this season, for which he deserves to win the PFA award.
- Became his own savior:
Not many gave him the chance to be successful in the Premier League when he went to Italy after an unsuccessful spell with Chelsea in England. But he fought his way out, improved himself and came back stronger than ever. It is his resilience and hard work that has done wonders for him and when that pays off, a player must be duly credited for the same which is why Salah should win the PFA Player of the Year award.
