Liverpool: Fans bemoan Mohamed Salah’s ineffective display against Genk

Despite his team collecting a third Champions League win in a row, Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah endured a frustrating night at Anfield as the Reds defeated Genk 2-1.

Is this the worst Salah has played since joining Liverpool?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Egyptian was the only one of the regular front three to start, with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino among the substitutes, but instead it was Georginio Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who plundered the goals that gave Jurgen Klopp’s team the victory.

Even that one was anticlimactic, a tame effort hit straight at opposition goalkeeper Gaetan Coucke after being played through by Trent Alexander-Arnold. [via Sky Sports]

The 27-year-old’s lack of potency last night was highlighted by some reporters, with Sky Sports‘ Charlotte Marsh saying that he was “a victim of bad finishing” and Jack Lusby of This Is Anfield lamenting “another off day in front of goal, squandering chances that he would typically put away”.

These Liverpool fans on Twitter were also critical of Salah’s ineffectiveness in the final third against Genk:
