Mohamed Salah is widely considered to be one of the best players in the world.
In summer 2017, the Egyptian returned to England for a second spell the Premier League with Liverpool, adapting his game to suit Jurgen Klopp’s high-intensity management style. After his underwhelming stint at Chelsea in 2014/15, the winger had a number of doubters on his case ahead of the new campaign.
To say he proved them wrong would be an understatement.
