MOHAMED SALAH will be pleased to hear the Premier League will welcome back the yellow match ball this weekend.
The Liverpool striker averages more goals with the winter ball than any other player in the history of the top-flight.
Since it was introduced in the 2004/05 season, Salah has averaged one goal per game with the bright yellow ball.
Harry Kane is second with 0.84 per match, Thierry Henry is third with 0.71 and Cristiano Ronaldo averaged 0.63.
Salah has scored just four times in the league this season, but has 24 goals in his last 24 games with the winter ball.
And he showed signs of his form improving on Wednesday night when he scored twice against Red Star Belgrade.
The change also brings good news for Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United side.
United average 2.22 points per game with the yellow ball, compared to just 1.96 with the white one.
Chelsea are second with an average of 2.04 and Arsenal have snatched the last podium spot with 1.85.
Premier League officials bring back the yellow ball every year when the clocks go back to ensure there are no visibility issues.
