Worse than all of them’: Chairman claims Liverpool have a player who’s been far worse than Trent this season

Mohamed Salah has been far worse than Trent Alexander-Arnold for Liverpool so far this season.

 

That’s the view of Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony. Speaking on his The Hard Truth podcast, MacAnthony insisted that Salah has been the most disappointing Liverpool player this year.

 

Virgil Van Dijk out of form, Trent Alexander-Arnold, God bless him, out of form and getting hammered. [But] Mo Salah is worse than all of them in my opinion, he looks worse than all of them,” said the chairman, who’s a Liverpool fan.

“Do you remember Mo Salah playing against Arsenal? Because I don’t really remember him. He can’t seem to beat any full-back at the moment, it’s like he’s carrying a lorry on his back. I don’t know whether that’s his new half a million quid contract or if he’s gone that side of thirty. We’ve [Liverpool] got issues, there’s a rebuild needed.”far worse than Trent

 

Salah loses his spark

Salah’s form is a real worry for Liverpool, there’s no escaping that right now. On the face of it, his numbers don’t look all that bad. Five goals in 12 games would be an okay tally for a lot of players. But for Mo, it’s small fry.

 

It isn’t even his lack of hitting the back of the net that’s the most worrying thing, though. Rather, the 30-year-old simply no longer even looks like a threat.

 

Takehiro Tomiyasu did a good job of shackling Salah this weekend, that must be said. As MacAnthony points out though, he hardly had to work overtime to do so, despite Jurgen Klopp’s claims.

Like the rest of the team, Mo looks shattered and bereft of confidence. For a man with his self-esteem, that really takes some doing.far worse than Trent

 

The hope will be that this is merely a dip in form for Liverpool’s No.11. Unfortunately, though, this lean patch has been going on for just shy of a year now.

 

This time last year Salah was arguably the best player on the planet. What a difference 12 months can make. The Egyptian now has just nine goals in his last 31 Premier League games.

 

On that kind of form, the decision to hand him a new, bumper contract last summer is looking like a mistake.

 

It’s still early days of the season though and Salah has turned things around in the past. Hopefully as Liverpool collectively find their form, individuals like Mo, as well as Trent and Virgil, will rediscover theirs too.
