Alan Shearer highlighted Mohamed Salah’s brace for Liverpool in the Merseyside derby over the weekend and how he ‘didn’t play that well’.

Liverpool’s flying forward has been outstanding for Jurgen Klopp this season – like he has been ever since he stepped foot into the club – Even Jordan Pickford was praising him following Everton’s defeat.

Mohamed Salah’s all-round performances have stepped up this time around because, aside from that controversial Tottenham game, he is scoring and assisting in every match.

That was the case on Saturday against Everton, as he netted a brace.

And whilst it ‘seems stupid’ for Alan Shearer to say, he noted that despite those goals, one from the penalty spot and the other on the counter-attack in stoppage-time, he felt that many parts of his game were off, as he told The Rest is Football Podcast.

The Premier League’s all-time leading goalscorer noted how the 31-year-old’s touch was ‘off’ and he just couldn’t make the ball talk whilst running with it.

Despite that, Shearer made it clear that if he was in Mohamed Salah’s shoes, he would take playing ‘rubbish’ every day of the week, as long as he is putting the ball into the back of the net.

Salah scores again…

“He didn’t play that well though, did he?!” said Shearer. “I mean it seems stupid, but his touch was off. It wasn’t working for him running with the ball.

“But that doesn’t matter, does it? You get two goals. Thank You very much and away you go.

On if he would prefer playing rubbish and score, or the opposite: “Give me playing rubbish every week and let me score goals. I wouldn’t have cared how I played. I would loved to have played well every game. But I would play rubbish every week, as long as I scored.”

20+ Premier League goals are coming from Salah…

The manner in which Salah is performing, you just know he is going to hit the really, really big numbers this season.

After nine Premier League games, he already has seven goals and four assists to his name (transfermarkt).

It wouldn’t be a surprise if he hits double figures in both departments, and if that’s the case, then those who have previously labelled him ‘selfish’ can shut up.

Plus, with his goals and all-round performances, not only will Liverpool return to the Champions League next season, but also mount a Premier League title challenge.

The defence is the only worry because the attack is more than primed to perform right at the top.
