Garth Crooks says Liverpool forward Mo Salah has proven him wrong
Liverpool forward Mo Salah is the talk of the town this weekend and BBC Pundit, Garth Crooks, has suggested he has been proven wrong by the Reds superstar.
Salah was in sublime form yesterday as he first played in Sadio Mane for the opening goal, before scoring a sensational individual goal himself.
The Egyptian is on course once again to be in the mix for the Golden Boot in the Premier League. And Crooks, after including Salah in his BBC Team of the Week, has said he’s been made to eat his words somewhat.
“It’s official: Mohamed Salah is back to his best and being the player I saw arrive at Anfield four years ago. Regular readers will know that I have had my issues with Salah when I thought he was chasing the golden boot award the moment the first ball of the season was kicked. Not anymore,” Crooks wrote.
“Against Manchester City he was unselfish, showed blistering pace and sublime finishing. The ball for Sadio Mane to score was sensational while his own goal was just breathtakingly brilliant in such circumstances. Great to you have you back, Mo.”
Salah’s goal yesterday put him on nine goals in all competitions already this season in just nine appearances. In fact, there has only been one game all season where Salah hasn’t contributed a goal or assist.

What a performance here from Salah. As Crooks put it in his comments, it was ‘breathtaking’ at times.
The Liverpool star continually shows his worth to the club. Goals, assists, and a constant threat to any defence. It’s little wonder, then, that the club are desperate to tie him down to a new deal.
Why Crooks doubted Salah in the first place is a mystery. But as usual, Salah has proven himself once more.
