Liverpool’s Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah has been rewarded for his brilliant run in February with the EA Sports Player of the Month award, the Premier League announced on Friday, his second time receiving the accolade.

"The players make it easier and the coach also makes it easier for me," Salah was quoted as saying on the English Premier League official website.

"It's nice to win it again especially because it's the Player of the Month of the Premier League so that's something good."

"I say always try to help reach the three points and to be in a better position."

The 25-year-old forward helped Liverpool score six goals in a month, scoring four himself and dishing out two assists.

Salah was the first Egyptian to win the Player of the Month award in Premier League history when he won last November.

English Premier League pundits, captains and fans gave Salah their votes to claim the award ahead of six other nominees: Sergio Aguero, Mousa Dembele, Pascal Gross, Eden Hazard, Glenn Murray and Xherdan Shaqiri.

Salah, who joined Liverpool last summer from Serie A side Roma, has taken the Premier League by storm this season, scoring 24 goals to take his overall tally to 32 goals in 39 appearances on all fronts.

He shares the Premier League's top scorer position with Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

Salah was instrumental in Egypt's successful campaign in the World Cup qualifiers, which saw the Pharaohs reach football's most prestigious tournament for the first time since 1990.
