Jurgen Klopp warned about Mohamed Salah’s worst game at Liverpool FC
Jermaine Jenas reflects on Mohamed Salah's worst game in a Liverpool FC shirt
Jermaine Jenas believes Mohamed Salah had his worst game in a Liverpool FC shirt on Sunday after the Reds lost 1-0 to Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge.
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 35 games in the Premier League this term after the African forward won the PFA player of the year.
The Liverpool FC forward has scored 43 times in all competitions this season to complete an incredible campaign.
The 25-year-old failed to get on the score sheet in Liverpool FC’s 1-0 loss to Chelsea FC to give his former club hope of pipping the Reds to a top-four finish.
Salah will be hoping to rekindle his prolific form ahead of their final game of the season against Brighton at Anfield before the Champions League final later this month.
Former Tottenham star Jenas saw some worrying signs in Salah’s performance at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
“Liverpool were laboured,” Jenas told BBC Sport.
“They were trying to get on the ball and make things happen but from one-twos around the box to their movement, it was not quite there.
“When they did get into good positions around the box, Salah had one of the worst games I think he has had in a Liverpool shirt.
“He is entitled to have a bad game given the season he has had, but Liverpool need to fix this quickly because they have got two of the most important games of their whole season coming up.”
Liverpool FC need to beat Brighton and Hove Albion in their final Premier League game of the season to be assured of a top four finish this season.
The Reds haven’t won the Champions League title since 2005 and Liverpool FC will have to beat Real Madrid to get their hands on the trophy.
