Salah, 25, scored four goals and assisted two more in February to win claim the honour for the second time in four months.

Brighton were excellent on the day and made Arsenal look like they were the team experiencing their first term in the Premier League, not the other way around. In the latter's absence, Everton were light on defensive midfielders, with Wayne Rooney the rearmost of a forward-minded trio.

"In the first half we played well but didn't score". Brighton were prepared to let them have most of the possession and concentrate on keeping their defensive shape, and the home side struggled to find any real openings. Once the first goal goes in it lifts the crowd here and it becomes very hard. Glenn Murray's shot was probably never going to beat Jordan Pickford.

Everton striker Cenk Tosun was delighted to be on the mark for victory over Brighton.

"There was an opportunity for us to come out better and improve in the second half and unfortunately we didn't". He put the pressure on Bong who fired into the back of his own net.
