Mohamed Salah has been shortlisted for the Uefa Champions League Player of the Week award after his impressive display in Liverpool’s 3-0 victory over Manchester City in the first leg of their quarter-final tie

The Egypt international got the curtain raiser and assisted Sadio Mane with the third goal to help Jurgen Klopp’s men to a comfortable win against Premier League rivals City.

 

The victory has put the Anfield outfit in the driving seat ahead of the second leg at the Etihad Stadium.

And as a result of his performance, the former Roma player – who was forced off in the second half of the encounter – has been nominated alongside Gerard Pique [Barcelona], James Rodriguez [Bayern Munich] and Cristiano Ronaldo [Real Madrid] for the individual prize.

Salah has now registered 38 goals across all competitions this season since he joined Liverpool in the summer last year.
