Mohamed Salah named the PFA Player of the Month for the fourth time this season.

Salah won the accolade on Monday in recognition of his six goals in four Premier League performances in March, including four during the 5-0 rout over Watford at Anfield on March 17. The Egypt international won 80 percent of an online poll to beat Tottenham's Dele Alli, Son Heung-Min and Jan Vertonghen and Manchester City's Leroy Sane and David Silva to the prize. Salah's 29 goals in the league this season make him one of the favourites to win the PFA Player of the Year along with City's Kevin De Bruyne. The Premier League Player of the Season award has become a two-horse race between Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne. With only a few games remaining, a strong argument can be made for either player, as De Bruyne has keyed City's dominance in the league while Salah is chasing the Premier League single-season goalscoring record. Even if a groin injury for Salah means the two do not meet at the Etihad in the Champions League second leg on Tuesday, they will still go head to head for the biggest individual accolade in English football. Our club correspondents Jonathan Smith (Man City) and Glenn Price (Liverpool) make their case for each as the Premier League Player of the Season.
