#5. Mohamed Salah
The Egyptian sensation had a season to remember last year. Ever since his move to Liverpool from AS Roma last summer, Mo Salah has been phenomenal for his current side.
The 26 year old has not started the season in the same fashion when compared to last season but his performances this season still have been top class.
Salah picked himself up after a slow start to the season but now has scored 7 goals in the Premier League and 2 in the UEFA Champions League. He has also provided 3 assists in the Premier League for Liverpool this season. Liverpool are still unbeaten in the league and a major part of it may be due to Mo Salah.
The Egyptian has some pace to burn and has a knack for beating defenders one after another and scoring goals for fun. Mo Salah is a technically gifted footballer, with a great first touch and brilliant ball control. Salah, along with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, make up one of the best attack lines in the world.
