Mo Salah won his fifth Premier League Player of the Month award for October 2023. Here's how that ranks all-time.
The Premier League announced his week that Mo Salah is their Player of the Month for October. It's no great surprise - the Liverpool forward had five goals in his three games.
And, of course, this is far from the first time that Salah has won the award. The last time was in October 2021 during a ridiculous period of form that made the Egyptian an early Ballon d'Or contender.
The other three came in his first season with Liverpool. That was a record-breaking campaign for Salah and he picked up the award in November 2017 as well as back-to-back wins in February and March 2018.
So October 2023 makes five. That is, unsurprisingly, one of the best totals in Premier League history and Salah is one of only seven players to ever win it that often.
The winger is actually joint-fifth all-time as he shares the no.5 with Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie. Both have no retired and it's worth noting that Salah boasts the most wins of any active Premier League player.
Four players do have more than him, however. Cristiano Ronaldo and Steven Gerrard both won it six times, meaning Gerrard still holds the record for the most by a Liverpool player.
The top two, both on seven, are Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane. The latter is still active, though left the Premier League for the Bundesliga this summer.
And so Salah could potentially climb the list before long. As for being caught, there are three active Premier League players on four wins - Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Son Heung-min.
The closest active Liverpool player? Trent Alexander-Arnold. He's picked up the award twice, so there's still a ways to go before he reaches Salah's mark of five.
