Souness raves about Salah after Liverpool FC’s 2-0 win at Southampton
Graeme Souness praises Mohamed Salah after Liverpool FC's 2-0 win over Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday
Graeme Souness lavished praise on Mohamed Salah after he helped to fire Liverpool FC to a 2-0 victory over Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
The Egypt international has been in sensational form for the Reds so far this season since his move to Anfield from Roma in the summer transfer window.
Roberto Firmino gave the Reds the lead in the sixth minute at St Mary’s with a cool finish, before Salah made it 2-0 when he combined with the Brazilian shortly before half-time.
Salah has been in brilliant form for Liverpool FC so far this season, scoring 22 goals and making six assists in the top flight for the Reds.
And former Liverpool FC star Souness was thrilled by Salah’s performance as he netted the Reds’ second goal with some neat play by the visitors.
Speaking during Sky Sports’ coverage of the game, Souness said: “It just doesn’t get any better than this.
“It’s cute and clever play and it looks so simple. Salah knows where everything is on the pitch when he’s receiving the ball.
“Salah just strikes it early and gives the goalkeeper new chance.
“Football at it’s very best can be so sweet to watch when it’s executed like that.”
Liverpool FC’s win lifted them up into third place in the Premier League table and left them just two points behind second-placed Manchester United.
The Reds return to Premier League action on Wednesday night when they travel to FC Porto for the first leg of their last 16 clash in Portugal.
Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season.
