Frank Lampard has credited Mohamed Salah with giving Liverpool FC a “new-found confidence” after Tuesday night’s 5-2 win against AS Roma on Tuesday night.

The Reds signed the Egypt international in a £39m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma in the 2017 summer transfer window.

Salah has scored 31 times in 33 games in the Premier League this season to help the African forward win the PFA player of the year award.

The 25-year-old netted twice and made two assists in Liverpool FC’s 5-2 win against Italian giants AS Roma at Anfield mid-week.

Salah struggle during an eight-month stint at Chelsea FC in 2014 before a move to Fiorentina on loan.

Former Chelsea FC star Lampard admits he has been stunned at Salah’s incredible performances throughout the current campaign.

“What he’s done is so extreme. He was at Chelsea but he didn’t play much,” Lampard told BT Sport.

“To come to this league, the most competitive league in the world and to achieve those numbers… That’s why he won the PFA player of the year, because of the uplift he personally has given this club. He’s given them a new-found confidence.”

Liverpool FC were 5-1 winners against Premier League leaders Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-final earlier this month.

The Reds are in third place in the Premier League table but three points adrift of bitter rivals Manchester United.

Liverpool FC will welcome 19th placed Stoke City to Anfield in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Merseyside outfit will make the return trip to the Italian capital to take on AS Roma in the second leg of their last four.
