A selection of Liverpool fans have slammed Mohamed Salah for his unconvincing shooting, after the Egyptian failed to score as the Reds beat KRC Genk 2-1 in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
Salah was handed a starting role in the UEFA affair at Anfield by head coach Jurgen Klopp, who called on the winger to play alongside Divock Origi and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in a front three.
Goals by Oxlade-Chamberlain and midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum ensured the Merseyside outfit triumphed over their Belgian opposition, and moved top of Group E after SSC Napoli were held to a draw at home to Red Bull Salzburg.

Liverpool fashioned a total of 28 shots against Genk as they recorded their third win of the Champions League campaign, with six of those coming from Salah.
No player for either side attempted more efforts on goal than Salah, per WhoScored data, but the 5 ft 8 star could only turn one of his shots on goal as three were blocked and two sailed wide of the mark.
Salah’s wayward efforts meant the 27-year-old failed to score in a UEFA tie for the second time this season, having also hit blanks six times in the Premier League.
He has attempted a shot on goal every 21.2 minutes in the Champions League and 23.2 minutes in the Premier League, though, but has only hit the target once every 72 and 50.5 minutes respectively.
Here are some of the messages shared from fans reacting to Salah’s shooting against Genk…
#Lfc what on earth is wrong with Salah? His passing, hold up play, shooting, all done with a lack of conviction and concentration and oh my god is he greedy!

Salah needs to actually shoot with more power. He lost his shooting boots 🙁

Just don’t concede! Salah left his shooting foot in 2018

Salah has really forgot his shooting boots since the Burnley game, trying to be too smart. Half hearted effort from most of the lfc players.
