It’s safe to say it wasn’t Mohamed Salah’s greatest performances in a Liverpool shirt.
One of the big talking points leading up to the Reds’ clash against Norwich on Saturday, was the Egypt international’s possible inclusion in his country’s Olympics squad for later this year.
Unfortunately for him, he couldn’t show what all the fuss was about. As per Sofascore, he lost possession a staggering 19 times, won just two of his 14 total duels, and failed to complete any of his three attempted dribbles.
After watching his performance, Liverpool fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on their winger.
Salah has been appalling this game.

A couple of fans slammed Salah’s selfishness in particular during the game.

Another couple of Liverpool fans felt Salah was still enjoying his winter break, such was his poor performance against the Canaries.
Bobby and Salah are still on holiday here. Rest of team have at least started training again…..#lfc

All great players are entitled to have an off day, and Salah more than most is deserving of one.
The forward had struck 18 times and provided a further nine assists in 33 games across all competitions before the clash against the Canaries, and thankfully for him, his poor performance didn’t result in giving up all three points.
The Reds found a way to win yet again, and the scary thought is that Salah was nowhere near his best.
