Another game, another Liverpool victory.
The Reds were made to work for their three points against Wolves at Molineux – they only scored the winner in the last 10 minutes after their opponents had equalised at the start of the second half. However, Roberto Firmino’s strike means that their lead at the top of the Premier League goes back to 16 points with 15 matches left.
Although they may have triumphed, one player was still on the end of plenty of criticism from the supporters: Mohamed Salah.
A few fans were particularly disappointed with his display, with one urging the club to sign Kylian Mbappe. Only this week it was claimed that the Frenchman would find Liverpool an “attractive proposition.”
Not sure what game you were watching there Ian mate. A 7 for Salah? He was absolutely dreadful.

Every player has an off day. It happens. Mane was injured for the first time ever. Salah was ultra-wasteful. Bobby, besides the winning goal, was absent

Mbappe needed ASAP to replace Salah.

The Egypt international had some good moments, but the fact that he failed to scored from six shots indicates that he was far from his best.
Most fans, though, took aversion to his greediness on the night – Twitter was ablaze with supporters questioning this facet of his performance.
It’s embarrassing how greedy he is

Another awry dislay from Salah. Sometimes his decision making becomes annoyingly frustrating.

Fantastic match.Wolves really deserve top 4 more than those currently in it. Salah is gonna cost us games if he continues to be selfish #WOLLIV

There were two incidents in particular where the fans felt that he could have passed the ball to a teammate – one with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and another with Takumi Minamino.
However, he does have eight assists in all competitions so far this term, so perhaps they are being a little harsh with him.
At the end of the day, his display doesn’t matter – the Liverpool juggernaut keeps rolling on.
