Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has won the PFA Fans' Premier League Player of the Month for April award.

The 26-year-old scored four goals and provided one assist last month to help the Reds maintain pace with rivals Manchester City.

Salah opened the month with his strike against Southampton and went on to score a stunner against Chelsea in their 2-0 win at Anfield.

The Egyptian also scored a pair of goals and assisted with another goal in their 5-0 thumping of Huddersfield Town.

The impressive performances saw him beat off competition from Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, Manchester City’s Bernado Silva, Everton’s Lucas Digne, Newcastle United’s Ayoze Perez and Fulham goalkeeper Sergio Rico.

Salah has now won the award for the third time this season after securing the individual accolade in December and January.

He leads the Premier League goalscoring chart with 22 strikes and has 26 goals in all competitions this season.
