Paul Merson on Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah v Chelsea
Merson wrote in The Daily Star: “Ahead of a cup final, it’s impossible not to talk about Mohamed Salah, who recently proclaimed himself as the best player in the world in his position.
“I’d have to agree with him, as he’s a bit of a freak each time he plays and he turns up in all the big games.
“Salah is an absolutely unbelievable player and every young kid who aspires to make it as a footballer should look at what he’s prepared to do to keep himself at the very top.
“I don’t think Salah has got a point to prove despite his barren run in recent weeks, but everyone dreams of scoring at Wembley in a cup final, so it’ll be no different for him!”
In our opinion, Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is a world-class player and is one of the best in the world.
The Egyptian has been superb for the Reds this season, and we should not be surprised if he scores a goal or two against Chelsea in the FA Cup final.
Salah works hard for the team and is available for his teammates when they need someone to pass the ball to in attack.
The former Chelsea attacker has scored 22 goals in the Premier League this season, and there is a very good chance that he could end up as the top scorer in the division.
