5 Liverpool players who have impressed this season
The recent transfer of Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona created a lot of hype in the media circles, as the Brazilian was one of the hottest prospects in the January transfer market.
Liverpool fans were in a shock when Coutinho was snapped up by the Catalans for 142 million pounds. Some ex-Liverpool players have expressed disappointment, as Liverpool might find it difficult to replace a player of his caliber in the near future.
After their 4-3 victory over Manchester City last month Jurgen Klopp had stated that the gap left by Coutinho would not affect the balance of the team as the Reds have enough quality in their side. Amidst this, there have been some lively performances from some brightest talents that Liverpool have in their lineup.
Let us analyze the performances of 5 such players who have impressed the most this Premier League season.
#1 Mohamed Salah
The 26 year-old has delivered some commanding performances in the Premier League this season and has been in prime form. Mohamed Salah has registered 19 goals in 24 games so far, with 7 assists to his name.
He has been a driving force for Liverpool in the forward line. Salah has been quite incisive inside the box with his speed and dribbling. His deceptive runs have often outclassed the best defenses.
The Egyptian has looked quite authoritative with his ability to hold the ball. He has got this unique ability to operate from both sides of the flanks due to which the opponents have found it difficult to track his clever movements.
Mohamed Salah can also be played as an attacking midfielder or as a second striker. His finishing too has looked absolutely superlative. Salah will surely be a key figure in their campaign in the remaining part of the season.
