Most football clubs have a main star player, and it is safe to say that Mohamed Salah carries that description at Liverpool.
The 25-year-old was rejected at Chelsea, but he shone for Roma and has since gone up a level at Anfield.
Salah moved to the Merseyside outfit last summer, and in his first season, managed to score an impressive 44 goals in all competitions, as well as registered 14 assists.
On Saturday, the Egyptian international had an opportunity to become a global star by winning the Champions League, but it was not to be.
Half an hour after kickoff against Real Madrid, Salah was forced off the pitch with a dislocated shoulder.
The attacker left the field in tears, and Liverpool failed to recover following their talisman’s departure.
Up until Salah’s injury blow, Jurgen Klopp’s side were performing well, but two howlers from goalkeeper Loris Karius led to a 3-1 defeat in Kiev.
The front three – consisting of Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane – have terrorised defences throughout the season, but once the Egyptian left the field, the threat diminished.
Madrid began taking control of proceedings and the Reds struggled to find a way back.
So, with that in mind, are Liverpool too reliant on Salah?
