- Mohamed Salah is putting up an exceptional show in the Premier League so far this season
- The Egyptian international has scored a staggering 17 goals in the English topflight this campaign
- Ex-team-mate Dejan Lovren has claimed that Liverpool would have been 15th on the table without Salah
Former Liverpool star Dejan Lovren has stated that the reigning Premier League champions would have been languishing in 15th position if they were without Mohamed Salah.
He further disclosed that the Egyptian who has so far scored 17 league goals this season has nothing else to prove again as he is the best.
Despite Liverpool’s poor form in the English top-flight this season, Salah has continued to perform at the highest level with incredible statistics.
He scored in their Champions League win over RB Leipzig ahead of the clash against Everton on Saturday, February 20.
Friend and former teammate Dejan Lovren believes we are seeing the very best of Salah right now.
Lovren told talkSPORT:
“Individually, when you look at the amount of goals he’s scored, he’s doing amazingly at the moment.
“Mo is in the best age of his football career at 28. Maybe he looks a bit older but he’s in the peak of his form so why not stay another four, five, six years?”
The stats certainly back that up, with Salah now on 24 goals in all competitions for the season.
His strike on Tuesday was his 118th, putting him level with club legend Ian St John, who needed 239 more matches to reach the same total
Meanwhile, Salah has stated that the reigning Premier League kings will fight like champions until the end of the season.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are now 13 points behind Premier League table toppers Manchester City following their 3-1 loss to Leicester City last weekend.
It was their third consecutive loss and fans have criticised Klopp’s tactics since the start of the second-half of the campaign.
The Reds - who have lost key players to injury this season - have lost six league games this season, causing boss Jurgen Klopp to concede their title hopes.
However, Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand is the latest to shower praises on Paris Saint Germain forward Kylian Mbappe after his impressive display against Barcelona at Camp Nou.
The Frenchman scored a hat-trick against the Catalans in the first leg of their Champions League rounds of 16 meeting earlier this week - giving his side an advantage ahead of the second leg.
