Jamie Carragher believes Mohamed Salah boasts a superior record against Liverpool FC’s biggest rivals than Reds legend Luis Suarez.

The Egypt international moved to Liverpool FC in a £39m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma in the 2017 summer transfer window.

Salah has scored 31 times in 34 games in the Premier League in the current campaign, including goals against Arsenal, Chelsea FC, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.

In doing so, the African forward equalled Suarez’s tally in 2013-14 when the Uruguay international scored 31 goals in 34 outings in the Premier League to finish as the season’s leading goal-scorer.

The 25-year-old netted in both legs of their 5-1 aggregate win against Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals before he netted twice in a 5-2 home victory over his former club AS Roma.

Former Liverpool FC defender Carragher explained why he rates Salah’s season ahead of Suarez.

“People are comparing him to Suarez when he was here, who would you rather have and all that,” Carragher told Goal.com. “But what Salah has over Suarez, for Liverpool, is the big games he’s scored in.

“Suarez is probably a better player all round, but for a one-off season there can’t be many who have had a season like this in the history of the club.”

Liverpool FC are in third place in the Premier League table and six points ahead of Antonio Conte’s Chelsea FC side.

The Reds will make the trip to Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The Merseyside outfit signed Netherlands international Virgil van Dijk in a £75m deal from Southampton in the January transfer window.
