Oh 23 goals 13 assists and football was banned from march to june only 3 months and in three months thats alot of games mo salah can score in so just imagine now if there was not a 3 month ban salah wouldve scored atleast 30 goals with atleast 15 assists why would they sell him its like selling messi from ur own team and people say he is overated how is he overated messi scored 34 goals this season and its 11 more goals from mo salah and comparing it to the best player in the world its insane

As a Liverpool fan I think mo salah should be sold to bring in a big name right winger. Mo makes terrible decisions in the box and he only has his goals due to being a poacher. If this was his first season at Liverpool he would’ve been dropped

Salah had a phenomenal season, if you take into consideration that hr is not getting as many assists this season from his mates, you also take into account the world cup and Egypt national team disappointments, and his ankle injury thats still lingering, and how defenders now mark him all game every game ....yes, he frausterates in a few touches but thats completely understandable considering all the mentioned factors and more...

Salah is great, but he's had his moments of selfishness. Other than that he's still amazing, his goals and assists back him up but I feel like he could have more assists if he let go of the ball at times, if Hendo didn't pass to Firmino for the winner against Wolves Salah would've probably taken the ball back from Hendo.

I think people set rediculous standards for Salah because of what he did in the last couple of seasons, which is, to say the least, quite unfair if you compare him to practically any other player in the world other than Messi. I mean in the last match alone all three forwards and a couple of midfield players missed some ridiculous chances, some of which Salah set up, but no one seems to mention anything except the one Salah missed. All of our players are having an amazing season and the thing that people dont seem to realize is how exceptionally hard they are working to achieve this, everyone in Liverpool today is a true hero of the match and set the standard for everyone who will come after.

Do not compare him with the goat.He miss such easy chances.A 12 year old could be a much better finisher than him

1: his first season is to crazy to copy a task that is hard. 2. Most teams learnt his technique and play style adapting, this can be seen many times with 2 or 3 players marking salah now. 3: salah plays a different role then befor opting to be more of a space maker and supporter rather then finishing and last runs, this new role is klopp and salah answer to denie every team that marks salah. 4: he still has a crazy good season stfu and enjoy

It's the egotism that comes when success and competition is in the same building. Between the trio more than anything. Not sure if I'm reading into it too much but it happen before. Ronald n Ronaldinho. Messi n Naymar. The fifa rating. Especially Mane getting upset with Mo's goal hungry decisions at times etc. Just my opinion

You can't expect more from Salah, as long as Mane is in great shape and sharing goals with him + every single player on the pitch is able to score.

Was thinking the exact same thing. His ball control and mainly his confidence is off a bit which I believe he drives off or gets lumbered by if it's low; which I believe it is when he isn't replicating the showing in previous seasons

J. Klopp knows the capabilities of his players in the squad. That's why he pulled off Mane & Firmino to enhance the midfield, and left Salah in his own to do the wonder. Salah lived up to the challenge & DID THE WONDER.

Odd analysis - no footballer is infallible, C7 and Messi included. The problem is that Salah has created such a high benchmark that he gets measured by the same, all the time.

SALAH's the top scorer ...... 15 goals ( premier league & champions league) ... VS 13 only for Mané (who played 2 games more than SALAH)........ Mané wasted 15 big chances ..... VS. 10 by Fermino .... & 8 by Salah
Ahlawy Masry
Ahlawy Masry 8 months ago
The most wasteful players (strikers) in Liverpool this season are Mané & Fermino .... 15 & 10 BIG CHANCES wasted respectively .... Whereas Salah has wasted 8 chances only ..... And scored his goals from Zero-chances that were very basic passes outside the penalty area or awkward passes in general ..... And he possesses the highest accuracy % STATS amongst Liverpool players 😊👍✔️

People want him to be like Messi, Ronaldo or Maradona, and he is not and probably will never be. It's not fair comparing him to those guys and expect him to score a ridiculous number of goals year after year. He is an excellent player who should be respected for the player that he is.

Jürgen Klopp and his "family" are changing the vocabulary of football right now, they are doing this by refining the meaning of what a TEAM is through by giving priority to human values ​​rather than favoring one above the other or relying on the talent of spoiled stars as some managers do. In his team EVERY BODY is great and communication is so vital there. Now if this is not what sport is all about then I don't know what is. It's a shame to see some media "experts" getting caught up in trivialities and microscopic nonsense (maybe it's a byproduct of extended air time that has to be filled with commercials anyway) , but switching sides like that when a player scores or doesn't score is pathetic and make some people really look like idiots ! Salah is a great player already, so are all the team members, their style of playing is maturing more and more and the result is the monstrous machine we see right now. As for Salah, he scores, makes killer assists and most importantly creates space for his other teammates to shine and he's happy playing a vital role in a historical team and he knows that! Many don't know that yet ! Well done Sir Jürgen Klopp, you have my respect !

The man has the golden boat for two years in a row, is the record holder for most goals in a 38 game English top league, and is probably the most heavily marked Liverpool player in any given game he is in. I agree that there is scope for him to improve his game, but it is really scary that he is that good already with these flaws.. where would he be without them?!? Doubt English football would be even able to keep him then.

I totally agree with what they are saying, the basic stuff Mo can’t execute but he executes the impossible which is a bit frustrating. The one thing I have been noticing, he puts the pressure on himself and that not healthy for any player, he doesn’t seem relaxed on the ball in certain situations and his decision making is a bit awful sometimes, that being said, I don’t think he missed that many chances this season, in fact Mane has missed some crazy sitters in Pl and CL

What a moment's when salah scores goal so much drama emotions what a atmosphere. Great player salah I just love him

I think Mo needs to relax a bit. He’s too tense sometimes so in those moments where he’s got an easy pass or shot on goal it effects his accuracy judgment and timing. When he’s got a difficult chance where he’s not expected to score he doesn’t feel that level of expectation and stress and so is more able play to his potential and score from stupidly difficult chances. If he can learn to calm down a bit he’ll become more consistent again, like he was in his first season. Back then he was more relaxed as he had less of a weight of expectation on his shoulders. He could learn a lot from Firmino. Now he’s got a cool head!

Terrible commentary from ESPN Fc and stevie nicol in particular. Guy just doesnt like Salah at this point. He is currently joint top scorer and chance creator for the leauge leaders that dropped 2 POINTS SO FAR in the leauge. Yes he can improve some parts of his game, but in the most important aspects of his role as a forward which is to create chances and score goals he is very ELITE. Yet all I hear hear from Stevie etc is moaning all the time! Ingratitude at its best!

Klopp sees things no manger ever sees in a player , and that's what he finds in Mo , He likes to give him the space - by letting Mane runs all over the place all the time and tearing the defense apart - , the time and the chance to find his touch that will produce that magic . Liverpool is not what it was 2 years ago when Mo was on fire , they changed so much , and his role as well . They play to win now , in fact , Mo has become crucial to that win recently by the way he assists . I think , he is , as Bobby , under the judgment as long as he doesn't score - despite the fact that he does all the time - , those guys need to look at how the team plays as one piece , and then judge the individual performance . In fact , let me break it here , Mo is the new Bobby . And seems to play that role perfectly .

As good and important as his goals are, Salah needs mentoring of some sort, the guy seems like he can't even receive a ball properly, I remember last season against Munich in the UCL liverpool possessed the ball for 3 minutes after the kick off, we lost the ball when it passed to Salah in the 3rd minute, and against United he was the worst player until the last minute when he scored.

Steve has always problem with Salah like he has with Ronaldo. He said the same stuff about Salah last season while praising Mane though they end up with same goals but Salah had far more assists. And even though Salah is missing chances he still misses less than Mane yet for some reason his misses are the only ones he remembers.
