Liverpool continued to boast their silverware credentials last night with a dramatic 3-2 victory over PSG at Anfield thanks to Roberto Firmino’s injury-time winner.
Anfield has proven to be a fortress in European competitions over the years and it continued to live up to its reputation on Tuesday night as Liverpool claimed a deserved victory in their first Champions League fixture of the season.
The midfield trio of James Milner, Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum were in imperious form in the centre of the park and their dominance played a pivotal role in enabling Liverpool to clinch victory.
Although the aforementioned trio deserve a special mention for their contribution, it’s fair to say that every Liverpool played had a crucial role to play, but the supporters were not full of praise for everyone on the pitch.
Indeed, in the aftermath of proceedings our very own Jonny Gorrie took to Twitter to assess the reaction from the Liverpool supporters and, as bizarre as it may seem, he found a handful of supporters calling for Mo Salah’s departure.
In truth Salah was far from his best and he never quite managed to establish the devastating rhythm which encapsulated his performances across multiple competitions last season, but any discussion of offloading the Egypt international is ludicrous to say the least.
Salah has been a revelation since he signed from Roma for a fee of just £38 million in July 2017 with 46 goals and 18 assists already to his name in all-competitions.
And talk of a slow start this season has been blown out of proportion as he’s scored 2 and made 2 from his opening 5 Premier League appearances.
The form Salah has demonstrated since arriving at Anfield is almost unrivalled in world football and without him Liverpool’s chances of claiming silverware would be dealt a decisive blow.
It’s only a matter of time before Salah gets back to his scintillating best, so the fickle calls for him to be sold in the aftermath of one below-par performance should be disregarded as foolish, ill-advised and quite frankly embarrassing.
