Alan Shearer has praised Mohamed Salah for dragging Liverpool FC to the Champions League semi-finals.

The Reds booked their place in the last four of Europe’s premier club competition on Tuesday night courtesy of 5-1 aggregate win against Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Salah scored the opening goal in Liverpool FC’s 3-0 win against Manchester City at Anfield in the first leg at Anfield earlier this month before Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Roberto Firmino polished off an outstanding performance.

The Egypt international netted Liverpool FC’s vital equaliser to cancel out Gabriel Jesus’ second-minute opener at The Etihad before Firmino scored in successive games to seal a 2-1 win.

Salah has netted nine times in the Champions League this season, including a goal in a 4-2 win against Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim back in August to help Liverpool FC reach the knockout stage.

The African forward has also scored 29 times in 31 games in the Premier League to sit at the top of the goal-scoring charts ahead of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

Former Newcastle striker Shearer explained why Salah deserves to win the PFA player of the year award following his incredible debut season at Liverpool FC.

“His goals-to-games ratio is incredible in every competition, not just the Premier League,” Shearer told BBC Sport.

“Everything he touches seems to go in the back of the net and he is having one of those seasons where you go out on the pitch not hoping you are going to score, but knowing you will. As a striker, I know that it is a great feeling to have.

“The statistics show how important he is to the Liverpool team and he has dragged them to the semi-finals of the Champions League, which is a big factor for me as well.”
