KXIP vs KKR Live Score

The Egyptian forward has scored an incredible 43 goals in all competitions so far this season, 31 one of those in the Premier League - equalling the record for a 38 game season.

Mohamed Salah has claimed a personal double by adding the Football Writers' Footballer of the Year award to the PFA gong he won two weeks ago.

In the end, less than 20 votes separated the two as Salah became the first African victor in the history of the award which has been running since 1948.

But, even with a 5-2 lead, even though they know that all they have to do is stop the hosts scoring three times, some of the odds for the Champions League semi-final second leg are reflective of two things: how deadly Liverpool are, and how mad they are too.

The Egypt global beat Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne to the football writers' award, with the winning margin fewer than 20 votes.

Salah will head to the World Cup in Russian Federation in June to play for Egypt who have been drawn with the hosts, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay in Group A.




Tottenham striker Harry Kane was in third place. "He is also the first African to receive the award and we congratulate him on a magnificent season", FWA Chairman Patrick Barclay said.

"Salahis the worthiest of winners".

"He is a great guy, very humble, very calm", Moreno said of Salah to Onda Cero radio.

Salah will now look to fire Liverpool to Champions League glory after the Reds beat Roma to reach the final.

Alberto Moreno says team mate Mohamed Salah continues to surprise him on the pitch because he puts in minimal effort in training.

Eyebrows were raised when Liverpool made a decision to fork out £36million on Salah in June as he failed to make the grade at Chelsea during his previous spell in England.
