Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter in annoyance after Mohamed Salah spurned a number of glorious opportunities against Fulham, chances that would’ve eased the nerves in the away end at Craven Cottage after a slender win.
The victory against the Cottagers puts Liverpool back to being just a single point behind Manchester City, with the Citizens yet to play their league fixture having been in FA Cup action against Swansea.
Jurgen Klopp has gotten quite inventive with his excuses this season. FFC’s James Jones think he has no one but himself to blame for Liverpol’s poor form in the video below…
The Reds are keeping the pressure on, but a noticeable aspect of their play in recent weeks has been Mohamed Salah’s lack of goals.
Amazingly, the Egyptian hasn’t scored for seven games, and against the Cottagers, the 26-year-old was visibly desperate to get his name on the score-sheet.
However, his personal pursuit failed, and in doing so, he appeared greedy and selfish at times where his teammates were better placed, much to the annoyance of Liverpool fans – his next goal will be his 50th Premier League strike for Liverpool, and he appears desperate for it.
Let’s see what the Reds supporters on Twitter were saying about their talisman’s barren spell and consequential selfishness…
He is being too selfish recently! Focus on winning the game, not the 50th PL goal!

Too many times lately he’s refused to pass the ball. Losing out on goals because of his greed.

Love Salah but he’s more interested in getting his 50th rather than the team winning , 3 players free on the left.

Getting sick of the 50th goal thing, lets win matches first and then sort out who has scored what afterwards.

He has been playing dreadful and being so selfish. What will it take to give the shaq a game

He has been way to greedy for about 10 games now, needs to look up

He needs to be taken aside and told to stop being greedy, yes he’s having a goal drought and wants to get on the score sheet but the guy has sacrificed chances for his team mates way too many times now and has very nearly cost us today due to it.
