Cape Town - Iconic former Liverpool striker Robbie
Fowler has admitted that Mohamed Salah might not be able to repeat his
spectacular 2017/18 season.
is Brazil's number one, says Man City's Ederson
Salah netted 44 goals in all competitions
last season and claimed both the PFA Players' Player of the Year and the
Football Writers' Player of the Year awards.
However, this season, he has so far
struggled to repeat that form, scoring just three times in 11 appearances.
"I'm not saying he's having a bad year
so far. He's still a good player, he's still an excellent player but to
replicate what he did last year will be unbelievable," Fowler told Sky
"I think he'll still score goals, I
think he'll still score a lot of goals.
"What I like about Mo Salah is that
his work ethic is brilliant, he doesn't shy away from anything. What I would be
more worried about is if he wasn't getting chances.
"He will bang the goals in. I'm not
sure he'll hit the heights he did last year but he is still a magnificent
player. He will still be a danger throughout the Premier League [season]."
Liverpool have got the season off to a
flying start despite Salah's goalscoring struggles and currently sit joint top
of the league on points, trailing Manchester City and Chelsea on goal
