You’d think after scoring two on the night to help win Liverpool the game – including one ludicrous, curled effort out of nowhere in the Hammers box – Mo Salah might get a bit of praise from those pundits watching the proceedings.
In fairness, Jamie Redknapp was more than happy to wax lyrical over the 28-year-old, whose latest goals took the forward past 20 goals for the season – for the fourth consecutive season in a row!
Rather inexplicably, Reds legend Graeme Souness wasn’t in a complimentary mood after his former side’s latest win, asking his fellow pundit whether he’d seen a greedier player than the Egyptian.
Fair enough if the winger cost us some great chances, but it’s next to impossible to criticise a performance like that.
