Mohamed Salah has been a talking point this season, but not for positive reasons.
The Liverpool star has scored twice in six appearances in all competitions, but he is yet to reach his scintillating best.
In fact, the Egypt international has lacked sharpness and looks a little off the pace as he tries to find his feet this season.
On Tuesday night, the 26-year-old cut a frustrated figure as he missed a handful of chances and lost the ball numerous times during the Reds’ 3-2 victory over Paris Saint-Germain.
Jurgen Klopp’s side dominated large spells of the game and in the 91st minute, substitute Roberto Firmino stepped up to claim the winner.
Salah was benched with five minutes of normal time remaining, and during the celebrations of Liverpool’s third goal, TV cameras picked up footage of the attacker throwing his water bottle to the ground.
Whether his actions were in frustration or celebration remains to be seen, but Chelsea fans were quick to criticise the Liverpool star.
Many warned others from drawing comparisons to Eden Hazard, who they believe is a cut above Salah.
Salah with a total disaster class tonight and an arrogant body language after Liverpool’s winner. Don’t compare this one season wonder to the BEST player in the league ever again.

Liverpool Vs PSG really shows who are the main players in Liverpool’s attack and guess what.
One isn’t Salah.

Hazard does anything BUT playing for himself.
If anything HE NEEDS TO BE MORE SELFISH.
Salah plays for himself, he got angry because his teammate scored the winner in the 90th minute while he gifted psg the equalizer.

Kindly stop Comparing Neymar/Salah with Hazard, It’s an insult. Calling Hazard the PL’s best player isn’t still debatable. Better if you start to compare him with the likes of Messi the only player above him currently.
