Mohamed Salah has not been included in this year’s Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA)’s Player List, a surprising decision given that he is one of the premier league’s top scorers with 19 goals so far. Snatching the title of the PFA Player for 2017/2018 after breaking the record with his league of 32 goals among 44 in the whole season, Salah’s exclusion from this year’s nominees serves as a real head-scratcher. “No Salah for PFA Player of The Year loool,” one fan tweeted, as another said: “A certain Eden Hazard is on the list for the PFA player of the year, but there is no Salah, Hmmm, what does that say?”Another said that although his performance this season wasn’t as good as last year, Salah played better than Mane whose name was still included in the list. Competitors from Liverpool and Manchester City dominate the list including Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane, Eden Hazard, Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling. Thanks to Salah, who sent Liverpool back on the top of the league’s list, Liverpool now is likely to win the title for the first time in 29 years.
