Liverpool fans should not be worried about the form of Mohamed Salah as he is “getting back to his best”, according to club legend Jan Molby.

The Egypt international netted 44 goals across all competitions last season, racking up a number of individual accolades in the process.

However, 2018-19 has been a bit more of a struggle for him so far as the former Roma man attempts to match last term’s ridiculous scoring pace.

Molby though told the Liverpool Echo that Salah is finding his best form again: “Just as some people have seemingly decreed that the team is not as dynamic as last season, similar remarks have been said about Mohamed Salah although his goal in the 2-0 win over Fulham suggested he’s getting back to his best.

“A lot of observations on Salah are based on his stats and it is very difficult for him to match his numbers from last season.

“But I think if you look at the highlights from Liverpool’s games so far this season he will feature in most of them and they’ll be him creating chancing or scoring goals.

“In that respect he’s almost as effective as he was last season but the problem is that he obviously finished the campaign with such a flourish, scoring some very magnificent goals, so that’s maybe why some people are saying he’s not quite at the same levels.

“I still think that he’s involved in an awful lot of things that matter so I believe he’s actually very close to being where he wants to be.”
