2017-18 Premier League Player of the Year
There’s still nine weeks of the Premier League season to go.
But after Liverpool beat Newcastle Unitd 2-0 at Anfield on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp was drawn into a discussion over the POTY.
Mohamed Salah opened the scoring for Liverpool against the Magpies with his 24th EPL goal of the season.
He’s now level in the scoring charts with Harry Kane. Tottenham beat Huddersfield 2-0 this weekend but Kane didn’t score.
Sadio Mane scored Liverpool’s second to wrap up the win.

Man City & Tottenham stars vs Mohamed Salah
Will Mohamed Salah win the 2017-18 Premier League Player of the Year award?
Klopp answered that question head on, naming players from Man City and Tottenham would could stop the Egyptian.
From City, Klopp thinks that Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva are up for the top prize.
Tottenham’s Kane is also in the running, as is Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino.
Klopp on Player of the Year – no doubt Salah is a competitor for Kevin de Bruyne. There are a few others as well – Harry Kane not too bad, Roberto Firmino, David Silva…

Klopp asked if Salah could win Player of Year: “Yes of course. There is no doubt KDB plays a nice season and Mo Salah does as well.”

Considering that Man City are a shoo-in for the title, having already scooped the Carabao Cup, the smart money is on one of their stars winning the prize.
KBD must surely be the frontrunner after the Belgian’s incredible season for City.
