Liverpool have bounced back from a hugely underwhelming 2020/21 campaign in impressive fashion so far, picking up seven points from a possible nine in the opening weeks of the new Premier League season.
Victories over newly-promoted Norwich City and Burnley were followed up by a draw against European Champions Chelsea last time out, securing a solid start for Jurgen Klopp’s charges.
One of the most impressive aspects of the Anfield outfit’s game has undoubtedly been their defence, with Kai Havertz’s well-taken header the only goal to have breached Alisson Becker’s net in 270 minutes of top-flight action.
However, it’s an attacker who has been the standout performer for Liverpool so far after Mohamed Salah enjoyed a stellar August for the 19-time English champions.
The 29-year-old created three big chances for his teammates, produced a whopping nine key passes, had six shots on target and pulled off six successful dribbles.
Salah has also recorded a passing accuracy of 84% and won an average of 2.7 duels per game, all of which highlights his incredible influence over this Liverpool side.
With talks over a new contract for the former AS Roma ace ongoing, Klopp will certainly be hoping his talismanic attacker can keep up his current form before putting pen to paper on fresh terms.
The Reds face a tricky task away at Leeds United following the conclusion of the international break, and Salah will be hoping to pick up where he left off on his visit to Elland Road.
