Mohamed Salah has been named the EA SPORTS Player of the Month for October 2021.

Salah scored five goals and claimed four assists for Liverpool in October, starting with a magnificent individual effort against Manchester City at Anfield which has also earned him the Budweiser Goal of the Month award.

He produced another stunning solo goal in a 5-0 win at Watford, before claiming a hat-trick as Liverpool recorded their biggest away win against Manchester United by the same scoreline.

He registered one assist in each of his four October matches, concluding with his pass to set up Jordan Henderson's strike in the 2-2 home draw with Brighton & Hove Albion.

It is the fourth time Salah has earned the EA SPORTS Player of the Month award and his first since March 2018.

The Egyptian topped an eight-man shortlist that also included Ben Chilwell, Maxwel Cornet, Phil Foden, Tino Livramento, Aaron Ramsdale, Declan Rice and Youri Tielemans.
