Mo Salah Smashes The Record For The Most FPL Points Accrued In A Season

Mohamed Salah finished a stunning season by adding more records and individual accolades to his collection.

'The Egyptian King' became the first player to 32 Premier League goals in a 38-game season when he opened the scoring in the 4-0 win over Brighton at Anfield, before he conjured up a glorious assist for Dominic Solanke's first Premier League goal.

Having finished two ahead of Harry Kane, Salah received the Golden Boot after the game - but his final day heroics have also seen him break a Fantasy Football record.

Reaching 303 for the campaign, the 25-year old set a new record for the most amount of points accrued in a single season, besting the previous tally of former Reds' favourite Luis Suarez, who achieved 295 in 2013/14.

Of all the records, you'd suspect that this is one that 'The Egyptian King' isn't too fussed about.

However, it turns out that the 25-year old loves a bit of Fantasy Football and his tasty team includes himself, his front three colleagues Mane and Firmino, Egyptian teammates Hegazi and Elneny, before he sold the latter - as well as the likes of Courtois, Hazard, Matic and De Bruyne, who he worked with at Chelsea.

"I have Courtois and Hegazi, had Elneny but sold him," he is quoted as saying on Egyptian TV, via Reddit/r/FPL.

"I've also got Firmino, Mane, Vardy, Matic, Hazard, and De Bruyne. I also own myself."

For his first season on Merseyside Salah has won: PFA Players' Player of the Year, FWA Footballer of the Year, African Footballer of the Year, BBC African Footballer of the Year, PFA Team of the Year, Liverpool F.C. Fans Player of the Year, Liverpool F.C. Players' Player of the Year: 2017-18 and the Premier League Player of the Season.

What a season. What a bloke. What a player.

Congratulations and thanks for all the points, Mo.
