Why criticism of Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah is extremely harsh

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is coming in for a fair bit of stick at the moment.

The Egyptian was accused of being ‘selfish’ against Fulham at the weekend by Jamie Carragher (The Metro), while fans have taken to social media to criticise Salah for his lack of goals recently.

The £34 million signing from AS Roma (BBC Sport) has managed to score just one goal in his last eight Premier League games.

It seems as though Salah is getting pelters from everywhere, but criticism of the attacker really is embarrasingly wide of the mark.

TBR’s view

Unfortunately it seems that Salah has become a victim of his own success.

His debut season for Liverpool resulted in an astonishing 44 goals across all competitions, with a record-breaking 32 coming in the Premier League alone.

It was a staggering feat, with Salah seemingly riding a wave of momentum all the way from August to May.

 

Salah was never going to replicate his achievements in 2017/18 this time around – only a fool would have expected him to.

Although he wasn’t brilliant against Fulham, Salah, generally, isn’t even playing as badly as people are making out.

His ‘poor season’ has still seen him chalk up 20 goals in all competitions. He’s also got nine assists.

His goalscoring ‘drought’ seems to have been exacerbated by his teammate Sadio Mane embarking on a red-hot streak at a crucial stage of the season.

Salah is still seeing a lot of the ball and looking dangerous with it, and that will be the main thing for the Liverpool supporters.
