Pundit reveals why Liverpool should be worried about Salah’s form

Liverpool star Mo Salah does not look like the same player as last season and may still be feeling the effects of his shoulder injury, according to Martin Keown.

The Egypt international was in red hot form for Jurgen Klopp’s side in 2017-18, netting 32 goals in 36 Premier League upon his arrival from Roma.

In total, Salah bagged 44 times in all competitions, but this season he has scored just seven in 15. That form should give Liverpool cause for concern, Keown believes.

“I look at Salah, and he doesn’t look the real deal for me,” the former Arsenal defender said to BT Sport.

“When you really look at him, he was really quiet today. Something is wrong.

“Maybe the injury he has is affecting him and he doesn’t want to get hurt. He’s not really the same player.”
