Salah now as short as 6/5 to beat Kevin de Bruyne and win PFA prize
Mohamed Salah has enjoyed a spectacular first season at Anfield, with the Egyptian tearing it up for Liverpool on practically a weekly basis and it’s clear that he will be on the PFA Player of the Year shortlist.
A few weeks ago, Salah was a double figure price to win this prestigious award although his four-goal salvo against Watford last Saturday has seen the bookies slash the player’s odds about claiming the prize.
Paddy Power now go 6/5 about Salah claiming the award in his first full season in England following a return from Roma after previously being on the books at Chelsea.
Kevin de Bruyne remains the favourite at 8/13 although the Belgian’s odds have drifted after a blank weekend, with the midfielder having previously traded at odds of 1/4.
KDB has had a monumental season and the fact that the voting slips were filled in a few weeks ago might see him edge out Salah for the prize, with no other player likely to come close to winning.
Harry Kane is likely to be on the shortlist although he’s now as big as 25/1, while David Silva and David de Gea could also be on the list although they are a 40/1 shot.
