One of the few positives to come out of Liverpool’s disappointing 4-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur this weekend was the continued excellence of their £38 million summer-signing Mohamed Salah.
The flying winger tormented Spurs’ Serge Aurier at Wembley and scored his side’s goal after what is fast becoming his trademark out-to-in run between the oppositions left-back and left centre-back.
In an age where each opponent is studied meticulously using video technology, it is easy to assume that most of Liverpool’s rivals will have prepared to stop the Egyptian’s favoured mode of attack, being able to stop it however, seems to be a different matter entirely.
In all of Liverpool’s games against top-six sides so far this season, Salah has looked like his team’s most potent attacking weapon.
In nine Premier League appearances the Egypt international has contributed five goals and one assist. His form in the Champions League has also been noteworthy, with a return of three goals and one assist in three appearances.
Salah is far from the finished article however, his finishing and composure when playing the final ball could definitely be improved upon.
Luckily for Jurgen Klopp, at 25-years-old, the winger has plenty of time to work the kinks out of his game and is about to enter the prime of his career.
In a season in which Liverpool’s German coach has come in for some heavy criticism, the form of Salah remains a real positive.
