Salah and Mane battle for African Player of the Year award

Salah and Mane battle for African Player of the Year award Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are both on the three-man shortlist for the 2018 CAF African Player of the Year award. Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang completes the nominees. It is Salah who is the current holder of the award, having beaten off competition from the same pair 12 months ago. The winner will be announced at a ceremony in Dakar on January 8th, a day after Liverpool travel to Wolves in the FA Cup third round. Both Salah and Mane are unlikely to feature at Molineux, however, with some rest badly needed after a relentless run of fixtures. It has been a memorable year for Salah, in particular, who is the overriding favourite to take home the award. He was the inspiration behind Liverpool’s thrilling run to the Champions League final and his injury in Kiev proved key. Mane has continued to go from strength to strength, too, scoring in the final and remaining an influential presence as the Reds top the Premier League.

One of Mohamed Salah's efforts against Bournemouth has won Liverpool Goal of the Month for December.

Having scored twice against Eddie Howe's men, the 26-year-old completed his hat-trick in a scintillating manner, dribbling past his markers including goalkeeper Asmir Begovic before he calmly slotted in the ball to help the Reds to a 4-0 emphatic victory.

The effort has been massively voted for as the best ahead of the Egypt international’s winning goal against Napoli in a decisive Champions League tie at Anfield.

Roberto Firmino’s goal against Arsenal came third; Divock Origi’s stoppage-time winner against Everton was voted fourth while Salah’s second strike against the Cherries was fifth.

The former Roma player who recently won the 2018 African Player of the Year prize will add the individual accolade to his numerous collections.

This season, the versatile forward has scored 16 goals in all competitions, including 13 in the Premier League and provided seven assists.

Liverpool travel to the Amex Stadium on Saturday to take on Brighton and Hove Albion and the fleet-footed forward will hope to continue his sparkling form in the tie.
