Can Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah continue fine form?

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has tallied three goals in his last four Premier League games. The Egyptian winger has recorded six goals while adding four assists for the Reds this season. Salah is continuing his fine form from last term, and despite critics claiming he isn’t playing up to the standard previously set, the Liverpool No. 11 has played well.

Salah is fifth in Fantasy Premier League scoring with 75 points. Only Marcos Alonso, Eden Hazard, Sergio Aguero, and Raheem Sterling are ahead of Salah in FPL points.

Liverpool are playing well having not tasted defeat this term. Jurgen Klopp’s side will meet Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday before playing Everton in the Merseyside Derby. Games against Burnley and Bournemouth will follow before Liverpool clash with Manchester United on December 16th.

The Reds’ attack isn’t hitting the heights it did last term as Roberto Firmino has scored just twice. Although Liverpool are not scoring as freely as in 2017-18, Liverpool’s defence is greatly improved. Giving the team a more balanced playing style.

Liverpool have scored 57 percent of their goals in the first half of games. Klopp’s men have scored 2.33 goals a match away from Anfield.

Saturday’s trip to Vicarage Road will be a test for Liverpool. A year ago, Liverpool gave up a late lead and drew 3-3 with Watford. The Reds’ defence is much improved, but Watford have taken points off of Tottenham already at home and gave Manchester United a run for their money.

Salah recently reached 50 goals quicker than any other Liverpool player. Although the feat was astonishing, Salah has his eyes on scoring another 50 for the Reds.

“I’m glad about that. I’m always very happy and proud to break records, especially records at a club like Liverpool,” Salah explained to BBC Sport. 

“Being the fastest player to score 50 goals for the club is something great. But I need to carry on and score more goals – I’m looking forward to 100!”

Salah may very well continue his FPL form in gameweek 13, and managers won’t want to miss out on having him in their team.
