Some Liverpool fans have been left fuming as Paul Joyce has predicted that Mo Salah will be omitted from the starting XI of Liverpool versus Wolves in the Premier League.
The Times journalist has predicted that Caoimhin Kelleher will start in goal for Jurgen Klopp’s team, with Neco Williams, Joel Matip, Fabinho and Andy Robertson making up the back four.
Should Salah start for Liverpool?
Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum and Curtis Jones will start in the centre of midfield according to Joyce, with Diogo Jota, Bobby Firmino and Sadio Mane making up the front free.
That means no place in the starting line-up for the Egypt international, who has scored no fewer than 10 goals and made a further two assists in 16 games in all competitions so far in the 2020/21 term (Transfermarkt).
Liverpool fan reaction to possible omission
These Reds fumed upon learning that the 28 year-old could be omitted from the starting XI on Twitter, given that he has an eye for both a goal and an assist:
Why would you rest salah when he can be rested midweek in the CL game that means nothing? Salah should play in my opinion. Cant imagine he'll be very happy if he doesn't play!!

Where is Salah

Why does Salah need a rest. Only Played 60 mins vs Brighton, 4 days rest since CL match, not needed midweek. So stupid if he doesn’t start.

What abut Mo salah?? Why people ignore him now just remember he still one of the best player in Premier League

Salah should play a part. Our midfield doesn’t have the most flair. Plus with young Kelleher and Nico, we may need to out score the opposition.
