Salah will come good

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler feels Mo Salah will soon be scoring goals regularly, though he suggests it will be tough to scale the heights of last season.

The Egyptian scored 44 goals in all competitions for Liverpool last season and claimed both the PFA Players' Player of the Year and Football Writers' Player of the Year awards in a remarkable campaign.

Salah has so far managed just three goals in 11 games this term, half the tally he had bagged by the same point last season.

Fowler says people shouldn't be too quick to criticise the former Roma forward.

What I would be more worried about is if he wasn't getting chances.

"I'm not saying he's having a bad year so far. He's still a good player, he's still an excellent player but to replicate what he did last year will be unbelievable," Fowler told Sky Sports.

"I think he'll still score goals, I think he'll still score a lot of goals."

Salah blazed a second half shot over the bar against Manchester City in Sunday's stalemate with the Premier League champions at Anfield.

For Fowler, it is very important to see the Reds talisman still getting himself on the end of chances, something he firmly believes will bring the goals back.

"What I like about Mo Salah is that his work ethic is brilliant, he doesn't shy away from anything. What I would be more worried about is if he wasn't getting chances," Fowler added.

"He will bang the goals in. I'm not sure he'll hit the heights he did last year but he is still a magnificent player."

Salah is 5/1 to finish as the Premier League's leading scorer this season again, while Liverpool are 5/2 to take the title off Manchester City.
