A statistical look at Mohamed Salah's season

A statistical look at Mohamed Salah's season

Salah was in sensational form once again as he scored four of Liverpool FC's goals to help the Reds bounce back from the disappointment of their 2-1 loss to Manchester United last weekend.

In some ways it was reminiscent of Luis Suarez, a former Anfield favourite, who achieved the feat against Norwich in 2013; in others - specifically his first and third goals - it was Lionel Messi-like. Players like Messi and Salah, they make decisions, and they decide games.

The Egypt worldwide forward has been a phenomenon since arriving from Roma at the start of the season, scoring 34 goals in all competitions - 27 of those in the Premier League.

"We're in the quarter-finals and have the same chances of winning as each of the other seven teams".

Salah's sensational 2017-18 continued with a four-goal haul as Jurgen Klopp's side romped to a 5-0 success at Anfield on Saturday, the Egypt worldwide taking his tally to 36 goals across all competitions this season. He's a great lad in the dressing room and to have around the place.

The Egypt worldwide has now scored an incredible 28 goals in the Premier League this season and has also notched up nine assists for his team-mates in the top flight.

"It is very hard to play against them, because they can both score in any moment".

"Luis moved on to Barcelona and is doing fantastically well".

Straight after the break, Liverpool went for Watford's jugular and made it 3-0 as Salah worked hard to stop the ball from running out of play before crossing for Firmino who wonderfully backheeled past Karnezis. "Absolutely unbelievable. He is doing it every week, without fail". But Liverpool skipper Henderson - who has shared a dressing-room with both men - says both players are different.

The effect Salah has on the team is, however, similar to the one Suarez had when he nearly dragged Liverpool over the line in their failed title challenge in 2013-14.

"It's the confidence", Henderson added.

"We had that with Luis. You have to bring him more often in the positions where he can score or be involved in games". "Sometimes you just can't do anything", Gracia explained.
