Mohamed Salah has scored 31 goals for Liverpool in all competitions this season. It’s February.
Every week the Egyptian continues to defy logic and on Saturday, during the 4-1 win over West Ham, he notched his 23rd goal in the Premier League for 2017/18.
When the ball fell to Salah with Adrian and a defender to beat, he made no mistake in slotting the ball into the back of the net.
Jurgen Klopp’s decision to splash £36.9 million on Salah last summer now looks like a masterstroke and according to the German, it’s all about his desire.
“In football it’s all about doing the right thing in the right moment,” said Klopp in his post-match press conference. “And I like Mo’s desire for goals, you could see that.
“Flexibilty, being fluent, depends on all the players around. You cannot just have one player flexible. That’s how it is.
“If you see how we change positions, how Roberto [Firmino] immediately defends each moment for Mo. Sadio does the same.
“It’s really important. If you didn’t do that – because you cannot score from every situation – you can cause yourself problems.
“Yes he is doing well, he scored from not the biggest chance we had in the game. It was a nice goal and Mo is obviously a boy who is full of greed to score goals, that’s what you need.”
Salah is a hot favourite to win this season’s PFA Player of the Year, but one person who got a bit carried away in praising the 25-year-old on Saturday evening was Piers Morgan.
According to the renowned Arsenal fan, Salah is the best player to play in the Premier League since Thierry Henry – no seriously.

In response to the tweet, a bemused Neville simple put a string of laughing-crying emojis to sum up the general feeling towards Morgan’s ridiculous opinion.
