Danny Murphy has heaped praise on new Liverpool signing Mohamed Salah for his sensational start to life at Anfield.

The Egypt international moved to Liverpool in a £39m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma back in July to provide Jurgen Klopp with more attacking options.

Salah has wasted no time having a positive impact on the Liverpool team after the African winger scored in the second leg of their 6-3 aggregate win against Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim in the Champions League playoff.

The 24-year-old scored on his Premier League debut with the third goal in Liverpool’s 3-3 draw with Watford at Vicarage Road before Salah scored a superb solo goal in their 4-0 win against Arsenal.

Questions were raised about Salah following his disappointing spell at Chelsea before moving to Serie A to play with first Fiorentina and then AS Roma.

Former Liverpool midfielder Murphy hailed Salah’s impressive start to life as a Reds player following his standout performance against Arsenal.

“He’s got goals and assists. He’s hit the ground running,” Murphy told BBC Sport.

Liverpool signed Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Chelsea teenager Dominic Solanke and Hull City defender Andy Robertson in the summer transfer window.

The Reds agreed a deal to sign RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita in a club-record £48m deal next summer.
