What Arsene Wenger said about Salah

"He’s top, top class and he’s certainly the best striker at the moment in the world because he scores goals that nobody else can score.
"You have to play street football to dribble past people like that in a short space. He’s full of confidence and he’s creative.
"Overall, I believe as well that he is very intelligent because the sign of players that always improve is the intelligence."

Salah has found the back of the net in his last six Premier League games including their 2-2 draw against defending champions Manchester City and he could end up winning the golden boot this season.
