The doppelganger is Ahmed Bahaam, a 30-year-old businessman who has become the talk of Egypt due to sharing 99.9999 percent of his genetic material with the nation's favourite footballing idol.

Where would Liverpool be in the Premier League if only Mohamed Salah's goals and assists counted? Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane was placed third.

"It has been the tightest call since 1968/69, when there was a dead heat between Tony Book of Manchester City and Derby´s Dave Mackay", said FWA chairman Patrick Barclay.

"What a race it has been between two players who, in a relatively short time, have reached genuine world class".

Salah was named the PFA Player of the Year in a ceremony in London 10 days ago and now boasts another major personal award.

No sportsman in Egypt has ever commanded the adulation and respect Salah has enjoyed since joining Liverpool past year from Italian club Roma.

According to several witness reports, the explosion was caused by some mobile phones being thrown into the fire, The Sun reported. Dramatic footage shows a fire about to be lit, as revellers sing in the background just metres away last night.

Mo Salah does what he wants.

.

Salah is the second Arab player to qualify to the UEFA Champions League Final after Algerian forward Rabah Madjer played the final with FC Porto against the German champions, Bayern Munich, in 1987.

Eyebrows were raised when Liverpool made a decision to fork out £36million on Salah in June as he failed to make the grade at Chelsea during his previous spell in England.

He also looks set to win the Golden Boot award to cap a stunning campaign on Merseyside.

Salah scored twice in the first leg against Roma on April 24 as Liverpool won 5-2 and he was in action again in the Italian capital on Wednesday as Jurgen Klopp's side booked their place in the final with a 7-6 aggregate victory.

He has matched the records of Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez - who all scored 31 goals in a season - with two games remaining.
