Liverpool was off to a shaky start to the latest edition of the Premier League until today when they thrashed Bournemouth and announced an arrival as loud as ever, equalling their own record of bagging the highest number of goals in a single contest in the Premier League. However, Juergen Klopp will still have one major kink to iron out and that is Mohammed Salah. Despite Liverpool’s goal abundance, Mo Salah still couldn’t get himself involved in the numbers and that is very uncharacteristic of the Egyptian stalwart.
The Liverpool winger managed to find himself on the scoresheet but it wasn’t a particularly sweet finish with somewhat of a rebound falling his way. The world has seen better goals from the striker and somehow, this season has failed to produce the much-needed numbers from the big man despite his incessant drive-ins at the opposition defence.
Here is what Twitter had to say about Mohammed Salah
Liverpool rode roughshod over Bournemouth in an imperious showdown where they slammed home a staggering 9 goals that to date remains the highest number of goals in an individual contest. Roberto Firmino strung together a hat-trick of assists while the Brazilian also found the back of the net twice.
It was Luis Diaz who opened the scoring for the Reds while it was the same man who close the scoring at Anfield after a remarkable afternoon. However, there was a lot of anger and displeasure for Mohammed Salah’s lack of figures that was fuelled by Liverpool’s false start to the season while some additional vitriol was poured after the fantasy owners who were expecting the Egyptian king to go big were left to rue their choices.
Twitter was absolutely not taking this misfiring form of Salah lightly and came forth with a meme-storm like none other. Here are the ten most hilarious tweets about Mohammed Salah after another barren night at Anfield.
