The Liverpool FC legend believes 25 goals would be a respectable tally for Mohamed Salah this season
Steve Nicol believes Liverpool FC star Mohamed Salah should look to score between 20 and 25 goals this season.
The Egypt international netted 32 times in the Premier League last season to finish ahead of Harry Kane in the goal-scoring charts.
Salah won the PFA player of the year award ahead of Manchester City’s title winner Kevin De Bruyne last term.
The African star moved to Liverpool FC in a £39m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma following a previous stint at Chelsea FC.
Salah netted 10 times in the Champions League to help the Reds reach the European Cup showpiece before a 3-1 loss to Real Madrid.
He finished the season with 44 goals in all competitions to finish as one of Europe’s leading goal-scorers.
Salah opened his account in the 2018-19 season with a goal in a 4-0 win over West Ham on Sunday.
Former Liverpool FC star Nicol believes Salah should target a tally between 20 and 25 goals in the 2018-19 season.
“I don’t think he will score 44 goals again this season,” Nicol told ESPN FC. “He is expected to score 20-25 goals a season.”
Liverpool FC have signed Fabinho, Naby Keita, Alisson Becker and Xherdan Shaqiri in the summer transfer window.
The Reds will start the new Premier League campaign with a home clash against West Ham United at Anfield on Sunday.
