Mo Salah’s second season syndrome continued on the weekend as the Egyptian could only score one goals and create two assists against Premier League whipping boys, Cardiff City. Neil Warnock was struggling to contain his laughter in the post match press conference:
He’s meant to be world class but couldn’t even score twice against us! At home, as well! If he was up there with the likes of Hazard and Kane, he’d be scoring a hat-trick against us in the first half. Have I told you how bad we are? It’s a different galaxy we’re living on, not just a different planet. A galaxy where I’m relying on Sol Bamba to rule. Where was I? Yes, Salah was terrible today all things considered.
Journalists sharpened their pencils at Anfield
Pencil sharpeners were in high demand yesterday as hacks took damning notes on Salah’s performance during the game. “The defences have him figured out now” said one journalist while there were moans of “he can’t even put away Cardiff”. There were also calls to put Sadio Mane on a slightly higher, yet more unstable pedestal by the media present.
