Robbie Fowler has enormous praise for one Liverpool player after Sunday victory
Robbie Fowler has told the Premier League’s coverage of Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Leeds that Mo Salah is both “phenomenal” and “unorthodox”.
Salah, 29, netted his 100th Premier League goal in what was his 162nd match in England’s top tier – as Liverpool eased past Leeds to win 3-0.
It was not one of his best, but the Egypt skipper scored on 20 minutes – the first of Liverpool’s three goals. Sadio Mane and Fabinho also scored.
A brilliant moment for Salah, who joins the 100 club – the 30th player to do so. He sits level with Matt Le Tissier in 30th, four behind Didier Drogba.
Speaking about Salah following the win, ex-Leeds and Liverpool striker Fowler gave his verdict on Liverpool’s number 11.
“He’s been phenomenal,” Fowler said. “He scores different types of goals. What he will be pleased about – he doesn’t consider himself the architectural-type striker, he beat me as a winger with 100 PL goals.
“He’s such a handful, he’s that player that will be quiet for 50 mins but then spring into life. He’s very unorthodox, but unique,” https://sport.optus.com.au/epl/videos/os30465/os30465-highlights-leeds-v-liverpoolFowler continued.
Fowler on Salah: Just how many can he score for Liverpool?
98 have come in the red of Liverpool, two in the blue of Chelsea. But how many can Salah go on to score? Well, it depends on his future.
Salah is currently in the final two years of his contract – hardly a promising sign if he is going to go on and break the 120 barrier, Steven Gerrard’s tally.
Michael Owen and Robbie Fowler sit slightly higher, on 150 and 163 in tenth and eighth. If he is going to reach that, he needs to sign a new deal.
