Liverpool FC sold Brazilian play maker, Coutinho to Barcelona in January for £142m but summer signing, Mo Salah have proven to be more incredible.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have not missed the Brazilian playmaker in anyway since he joined the Catalan giants.
If anything, Egyptian winger, Salah seems to have gone from strength to strength in his absence posing a timely threat to all defenders in the EPL.
The Egypt international scored four goals yesterday as Liverpool demolished Watford 5-0 in a rescheduled League match.
And the winger’s performance had former Arsenal defender Keown wheeling out the superlatives.
Salah’s 28 goals has now made him the leading goalscorer in Europe’s top Leagues followed by Lionel Messi.
