The former Roma man netted the winning goal to help Jurgen Klopp’s men to a 1-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion before scoring twice in their 4-3 win against Crystal Palace at Anfield.

Salah will slug it out with Manchester United trio of David de Gea, Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford as well as Watford’s Troy Deeney, and Manchester City’s Leroy Sane to claim the prize.

The Egypt international won the individual accolade last month and will be looking to make it back-to-back victories.

Liverpool square up with West Ham United on Monday and will be hoping to return to winning ways after their 1-1 stalemate with Leicester City last time out.
