Carra reveals why Salah deserves Player of the Year award more than anyone
Jamie says De Bruyne has been brilliant this season and certainly deserves award, but...
"With respect to the Belgian, the more I assess Salah’s contribution, the more I feel he deserves to push De Bruyne far closer than I imagined. He has the potential to go ahead in the next few weeks, particularly if he produces a match-winning performance at Old Trafford next weekend.
"Salah is only the sixth player to score 30 goals in all competitions, inclusive of the Premier League, in their first season at their club. However, he has achieved this by the end of February so is not finished yet. Look deeper at these figures and his contribution is unprecedented.
"With regards to league goals, Salah has the highest goals-per-minute ratio (he scores every 92 minutes), and the highest goals/assists goals per minutes (he either scores or creates a goal every 68 minutes) of any new signing in Premier League history.
"He is not just top of this list - he is well ahead with 22 goals and nine assists. There are ten games remaining so this will improve before May.
"To put it into perspective, he scores more regularly than Diego Costa, Fernando Torres, Alan Shearer, Sergio Aguero, Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Robin Van Persie during their debut campaigns at Chelsea, Newcastle, Manchester City and Manchester United.
These are among the greatest goalscorers of all time, yet Salah is currently more lethal. This makes the argument for making him Player of the Year more compelling."
