The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern don’t think that Mohamed Salah could get any better at this point. The Egyptian has made a simply sensational start to life at Anfield, and at present, no superlatives can do him justice.
He scored yet another goal on Sunday against Bournemouth, taking his tally to a whopping 14 goals, leaving our resident Reds drooling into their pint glasses. Indeed, he’s already a cult favourite amongst the fans in the Transfer Tavern.
His performances since moving to the club have left Liverpool fans talking up just how good he could be, and it seems as though the Reds over on the Liverpool Reddit page are expecting big things from him. Indeed, in response to a Tweet by German journalist Raphael Honigstein drawing comparisons between Arjen Robben and Mohamed Salah, it’s fair to say that a few Liverpool fans are noticing the similarities.
Salah is turning into Arjen Robben. Everyone knows what's coming but they can't do anything about it.

Arjen Robben is, of course, one of Europe’s best wingers – having won big trophies like the Champions League and Bundesliga throughout his career.
In discussing the Tweet, fans have looked towards Salah’s remarkable goalscoring record and his impressive start to life at Anfield to suggest that he’s perhaps even already better than his German counterpart. Others appear to be hoping to put off the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona by saying that he’s nothing like the Dutchman!
It may be too soon to say that he’s on course to be better than Robben, but Salah is certainly on the right path, and the fans over on Reddit can’t seem to get enough of him.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
