The Egypt international was a revelation in his first full season in the Premier League after his move to Liverpool FC from AS Roma last summer.
Salah scored 43 times in all competitions to help Liverpool FC finish in the top four and reach the Champions League final in Kiev back in May.
The 26-year-old was forced off in the first half of their 3-1 loss to La Liga giants Real Madrid and Salah has struggle to get back to top form since the injury.
While Salah is perceived to be suffering from second season syndrome in the Premier League, the African footballer of the year has still scored three times in the top flight this term.
Indeed, the Liverpool FC number 11 found the net in victories over West Ham United, Leicester City and Southampton in the Premier League this term.
Salah was particularly wasteful in Liverpool FC’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge and the former Fiorentina forward was replaced in the second half.
Former Chelsea FC star Burley believes Salah can still have a productive season but has ruled out the Egyptian forward matching his goal-scoring feats last term.
“Clearly Salah is not going to have the year that he had last year,” Burley told ESPN.
“He was never going to have a repeat of that. But he can still have a consistent goal-scoring year but he is having a few hesitant moments.”
Salah moved to Liverpool FC in a £39m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma in the 2017 summer transfer window following two seasons in the Italian capital.
The Liverpool FC forward spent eight months at Chelsea FC in 2014 but Salah struggled to hold down a regular starting spot under Jose Mourinho.
Salah went away to Italy on loan with Fiorentina and AS Roma before the reigning PFA player of the year completed a permanent switch to the Rome outfit.
Liverpool FC have made an impressive start to the season following six successive victories over West Ham, Brighton, Crystal Palace, Leicester, Tottenham and Southampton.
The Reds were held to a 1-1 draw with title rivals Chelsea FC last weekend after Daniel Sturridge cancelled out Eden Hazard’s opener.
