Liverpool started this season with high hopes of being in the title mix. Eleven matches into the season, the Reds find themselves 5th in the Premier League table on 19 points, 12 off the pace-setting Manchester City at the top.

However, we are still in the race for top-four, if not the title, and that’s due to our new signing Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian winger joined the club in the summer in a record deal from AS Roma and has transformed the fortunes of the club.

Salah was snapped up for around £34m from the Serie A outfit. That record has since been eclipsed by Naby Keita who would join Anfield next season but Salah’s influence at the club is unbelievable.

According to former Reds ace Gary Gillespie, the winger’s goals have been crucial in keeping Jurgen Klopp’s men around the top-four. Signed primarily as a conventional winger, Salah has surprised many, including his manager with his goals.

Talking to the Liverpool Echo, Gillespie indicated that Salah’s pace makes him an asset for Klopp’s side as it pace makes him a thorn in the flesh of many sides.

“He’s got the one thing people hate, and that is pace in abundance, and I’ve never actually seen him get knocked to the floor or fall over.”

Salah has already impressed with his pace, troubling sides with his runs and has also established a good partnership with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane. Once the Senegal star returns to full fitness, the duo would make Liverpool’s attack one of the most feared ones once again.

Gillespie also feels that Salah has silently surprised many, with his goals.

He added: “He’s got 12 goals, but he could easily have had 20 because he gets in goal scoring positions on numerous occasions and not quite finishes it.

“We’ve all been screaming for an out-and-out goal scorer. It comes in an unlikely figure in Mo Salah.”

Gillespie reckons that the Reds squad has found a natural goal scorer in Salah and the fans are enjoying every bit of it. He feels that the Kop faithful could end up idolising Salah before the end of this season making him one of the most revered players.

So, is Salah really the game changer for Klopp this season? For all his troubles at the back, the German tactician knows that it is vital for his forwards to keep scoring as many as they can. With doubts persisting over the availability of Mane, Salah’s goals could be crucial to the campaign.

Harry Wilson Liverpool

Harry Wilson

Wales defeated the Republic of Ireland in a UEFA Nations League game and they have Harry Wilson to thank.

The Liverpool youngster stepped up to score a brilliant free-kick for the away side in the 58th minute.

The 21-year-old was in the news earlier in the season when he smashed in a free-kick at Old Trafford. Manchester United were the opposition for Derby County on that evening and the Welshman’s goal helped the Championship side knock the Red Devils out of the Carabao Cup.

The 21-year-old is on loan at Derby and is one of the brightest youngsters at Anfield. The Welshman certainly got a lot of people talking with his effort against the Republic of Ireland and some fans believed the attacking midfielder has a great future ahead of him.

“Flick him to barca” – Some Liverpool fans believe new video will help the Reds offload flop star for better price



Alberto Moreno

Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno has just one start to his name this season and that came in the 2-1 loss against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup at Anfield.

The game will be remembered for an Eden Hazard wonder goal, where the Spaniard was taken to the cleaners by the Belgian.

Moreno has found it tough to reclaim his starting spot in the Liverpool team, with Andy Robertson putting in a number of great performances. The newly appointed Scottish captain is possibly the best left-back in the league and was with the national side during the international break.

The Spaniard was training with the other members of the squad at Melwood and a brilliant video of his was shared. Moreno can be seen doing a couple of quality flicks during training and that got a number of fans interested.

The left-back has been linked (h/t Mirror) with a move to Barcelona in the winter window, and some fans believed this video was a ploy to increase his value ahead of a possible sale.
