Stoke City star and Premier League veteran Peter Crouch has revealed who he will choose for the Player of the Year award.
The former Liverpool star knows a thing or two about expectations having been at Liverpool and also knows how hard it is to succeed at Anfield.
One player who certainly hasn’t struggled to make an impact is Mohamed Salah.
The Egyptian has scored 28 goals in the Premier League alone and only has one realistic competitor.
That comes in the form of Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne who has been the heart and soul of England’s best side.
‘For me, it’s Mo. That’s the only way to say it,’ Crouch explained in his Mail column.
‘This week footballers up and down the country have been casting their votes for the PFA awards and my star of the Premier League season is Mohamed Salah.
‘The night we faced Liverpool at home was the night he really made an impression on me.
‘He came off the bench and scored two goals, the first being a volley that couldn’t have been hit any sweeter.
‘I was standing directly by him and it was going in from the moment it left his foot.
‘What Salah has done over the last three months will be fresh in everyone’s mind.
‘I also think the impact he has had on Liverpool, with the amount of goals he has scored, is bigger than the influence De Bruyne, who is surrounded by world-class talents, has had on City.
Mohamed Salah is 1 of only 2 players in Europe’s big 5 leagues to score 40+ goals for club & country this season
