Liverpool legend-turned-pundit Michael Owen believes Mohamed Salah does not get much credit for his ability to bounce off players in the lead up to his goals. The Egypt international had recently netted a sublime hat-trick at Bournemouth and he continued with the same vein of form versus Napoli where he bagged the sole goal in a close 1-0 triumph.
Salah made a slow start to the current campaign where he was guilty of squandering scoring opportunities and this led to suggestions that he may end up being a one-season wonder. However, he has managed to prove the critics wrong with an impressive run of form over the past couple of months and he is currently the joint-top Premier League scorer with 10 goals already on the board.
Meanwhile, Liverpool recently progressed to the Champions League knockouts by the slenderest of margins after grabbing a 1-0 win over Napoli on Tuesday night. Salah netted the winner in the 34th minute of the game which ensured that the Reds reached the last 16 stage of the competition with the better head-to-head record against Napoli in terms of the number of goals scored.
