Mohamed Salah’s stunning form in November has earned the Liverpool star the Premier League’s Player of the Month award.
The 25-year-old, who is the first Egyptian to claim the honour, scored seven goals in four top-flight matches last month.
His tally for the season is 19 in 24 matches across all competitions, with Salah topping the Premier League goalscoring charts on 13.
Upon being presented with the award at Liverpool’s Melwood training ground, Salah said: ‘Each month I want to score many goals and help the team to win games.
‘That month, I scored seven goals and it’s a good feeling, but for me the most important thing is the result and we had good results that month.’
Salah’s seven goals came against doubles against West Ham, Southampton and Chelsea while also netting in Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against Chelsea.
He has scored 20 goals in all competitions for Liverpool this season, his first at Anfield following his £39million summer transfer from Roma.
Salah is in line to feature for Liverpool at Bournemouth on Sunday as Jurgen Klopp’s side look to hit back after drawing their last two games against West Brom and Everton.
The former Roma winger has helped Jurgen Klopp’s side to fifth in the table, with a last-16 Champions League showdown against Porto to come following a group phase in which the Reds scored 23 times.
Pep Guardiola took the Manager of the Month prize for the third time in a row, having stretched Manchester City’s winning streak to a record 15 matches.
Meanwhile, the resurgent Wayne Rooney landed the Goal of the Month award for his audacious long-range lob for Everton against West Ham.
The retired England legend has nine league goals this campaign.
