Former Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah maintained his prolific goalscoring form with a brace from the substitutes’ bench in Liverpool’s 3-0 win against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Wednesday night, and Blues fans were quick to have their say on the Egyptian.
Jose Mourinho sold the attacker to Roma in 2016 during his time in charge at Stamford Bridge, with the Egypt international netting just two goals in 19 appearances for the west London outfit.
However, he has started the current campaign with Liverpool in sensational form in front of goal after returning to England from Serie A, scoring 17 in 21 appearances in all competitions.
12 of those have come in the Premier League and he now leads the goalscoring charts – two ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane.
Chelsea supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the forward’s progress, and while one said he is “better than Hazard”, another said “wish we never sold Salah”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
