Mohamed Salah was a revelation for Liverpool last season as he scored 44 goals in all competitions.
The Egyptian international was a major component in the club’s run to the Champions League and his goals helped them secure a top-four position in the Premier League.
Many would have hoped that the attacker would carry on where he left off this season, but it has been a slow start.
In fairness to Salah, he has two goals and two assists already to his name after four league outings.
However, such is the standard expected of him, the former Chelsea star is slightly below par.
For example, manager Jurgen Klopp opted to haul the attacker off after an unsuccessful 71 minutes against Leicester City on Saturday.
Liverpool won the match 2-1, but they were very fortunate to come away with all three points at the King Power Stadium.
During his stint on the pitch, Salah mustered just three shots and only one was on target.
The ex-Roma star had fewer touches on the ball than the entire starting XI, although it needs to be reiterated that he did not complete a full match.

There is certainly nothing for Liverpool to worry about at this stage, but from Salah’s point of view he will be frustrated that he is yet to find his stride.
At this moment in time, the 26-year-old’s clinical final touch is missing, but once he finds it, the Reds’ attack will be devastating once more.
