Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has lavished praise on Mohamed Salah for his performance at Stamford Bridge at the weekend and for that superb goal he scored that put Liverpool 2-0 up.
Eventually, Chelsea would strike back in the game on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League, and the 2-2 probably helps neither in terms of their title hopes, but it was certainly an exciting match that the neutral could at least enjoy if no one else.
Ferdinand was one of those, probably despite his United links, and it's clear that he is a huge fan of Mohamed Salah with him once again waxing lyrical over the Egyptian's performance against Chelsea.
Telling Vibe With Five, he said:
“He’s in my Fantasy team so I was buzzing when he scored that, to be honest with you.
“The way he stood Alonso up shimmied a bit moved him up, pressed pause for a minute and slapped it in the goal.
“He’s the most devastating player around at the moment. He's so decisive, getting two or three chances a game.
“He’s too hot to handle now.”
Anfield Watch Verdict
It was a fabulous goal from a fabulous player, what more needs to be said?
Mohamed Salah is arguably in the form of his life, which is incredible considering he scored over 40 goals in a season for the Reds a few years ago, and the goals he is scoring are nothing short of outrageous.
When former Manchester United players are singing your praises, you're doing something right and right now Salah can't do any wrong.
