Steven Gerrard sends honest message to Liverpool FC fans about Mohamed Salah
Liverpool and England legend Steven Gerrard states that Mohamed Salah has been Reds best player this season.
Steven Gerrard believes that Mohamed Salah has been Liverpool’s standout performer so far.
Salah once again proved to be the difference for his side, as his goal earned Liverpool a point in the 1-1 draw against Chelsea.
The Reds hero believes that the winger has been behind all the positives this season from the team, and told BT Sport that his finishing and his directness has been instrumental.
“He’s been Liverpool’s best player so far this season,” Gerrard said.
“He’s been the catalyst for everything that Liverpool have done well.”
“Playing from that right side as a left-footer – he’s very quick and very direct. When he gets a sight at goal, more often than not, he’s a fantastic finisher.”
“He scores all kinds of different goals and has great variety in his finishing.”
The Egyptian has been in supreme form this season, and currently sits atop the scoring charts in the league with ten goals.
His glittering start to the season is far removed from his time at Chelsea. Two years were spent languishing on the substitute’s bench and going out on loan to Fiorentina and Roma in Serie A.
It was his time in Rome that bagged a big money move to Anfield, and he showed his former employees what he can do with an effervescent display.
His goal nearly bagged all the points, before Chelsea substitute Willian deceived Liverpool goalkeeper with a shot that could well have been a cross.
Whether Willian’s goal was intentional mattered little, as it rescued Chelsea a point and kept up the Blues great recent record at Anfield, where they haven’t lost since 2012.
