Mohamed Salah’s scoring exploits have surpassed Jamie Carragher’s expectations – and the Liverpool legend believes the forward could reach 25 goals this season.
In breaking the deadlock against Maribor on Wednesday night with a deft, angled flick at the Kop end, the summer signing achieved double figures in just his 16th appearance.
The goals have flowed from the very start of the campaign for the Egypt international and Carragher sees no reason why Salah cannot continue to add heavily to that haul:
“Of all the transfers last summer, none has had more impact than Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah”
“When I saw Salah score his first for the club at Watford on the opening day, I felt this was a player who would score 15 this season. I underestimated. He is on schedule to get 25.
“The Egyptian is more than a traditional winger. He is a wide striker with the ability to get into goalscoring positions every time he plays.
“Just as with the signing of Sadio Mane in 2016, [Liverpool] have spent very well in bringing Salah back to England after his disappointing spell at Chelsea.”
