EXTRA TIME: Mohamed Salah reacts to Philippe Coutinho's move to Barcelona

The Egypt worldwide has scored 17 goals and made five assists in 21 Premier League games for the Reds this season since his transfer to Anfield from Roma in the summer window.

Los Blancos are of course now 16 points behind Barça in the Spanish title race following Sunday's 2-2 draw against Celta Vigo to kick off the new calendar year and have scored far fewer goals at this stage of the season than they have done for many years.

Salah came ahead of some prominent stars including former Liverpool teammate Philippe Coutinho, who sealed a €160 million move to Barcelona on Saturday, Chelsea's Belgian wizard Eden Hazard, Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski and Manchester City frontman Sergio Aguero.

Man City beat Liverpool 5-0 at the Etihad earlier in the season.

Trump said in September that he was ending Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, but gave Congress until March to act. The protection from deportation was granted to Salvadorans by President George W Bush in 2001 after an quake struck El Salvador.

With Salah likely restored alongside Mane and Firmino on Sunday, the Reds could stand a chance of becoming the first side to defeat City in the English top flight this campaign.

The Professional Footballers' Association of England has named Liverpool (England) forward and Egypt global Mohamed Salah as its Premier League Player of the Month for December 2017.

Salah missed Liverpool's last two games against Everton and Burnley with a groin problem and the Egyptian feared he'd missed the clash against Pep Guardiola's league leaders at Anfield.

Salah who played in all of the Reds' league games last month notched five goals with three assists to his name.
