The winner of the PFA Vertu Motors Premier League Fans’ Player of the Month – September

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been crowned the PFA Vertu Motors Premier League Fans’ Player of the Month for September.

The Egyptian was one of six nominees for the vote, with fans choosing between him, Antonio Rudiger, Michail Antonio, Ismaila Sarr, Cristiano Ronaldo and Ivan Toney, all of whom enjoyed excellent starts to the Premier League season.

In the end, however, it wasn’t even close.

With a whopping 69% of the 25,399 votes, you have voted Salah as the first recipient of the PFA Vertu Motors Fans’ Player of the Month for the 2021/22 season.

Ronaldo came in second with 15% of the votes, with Toney securing third place with 6%.

Salah’s Liverpool scored three goals in each of their three outings in September, with the 29-year-old finding the back of the net in all three – extending the run of goals which began with two strikes back in August.

The month began as Salah made history, firing home his 100th Premier League goal in a 3-0 win over Leeds United.

In what was just his 162nd appearance in the competition, he tapped home from a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross to become the fifth-fastest player in league history to reach the century mark, behind only Alan Shearer (124), Harry Kane (141), Sergio Aguero (147) and Thierry Henry (160).

Next to fall were Crystal Palace, who were powerless to slow down Salah’s wave of momentum. He played a huge role in Sadio Mane’s opener and had a couple of chances of his own before volleying home from a corner to give Liverpool an insurmountable lead.

To end the month, Salah and Liverpool played out an enthralling 3-3 draw with Brentford, in which the winger extended his run of scoring to four consecutive games.

Salah beat the offside trap and slotted home past David Raya, needing a little help from VAR to highlight the perfect timing of his run.
