Owen: Mo key win over Man City
Former Liverpool and England star Michael Owen praised Egyptian international Mohamed Salah for the Reds during the 2022-2023 season.
Mohamed Salah led Liverpool to victory over Manchester City, with a clean goal at the top of the 11th round of the Premier League competition on Sunday, at Anfield.
“Well, I think if you ask any club fan to expect who is Liverpool’s top scorer by the end of the season,” the Liverpool and England striker said in remarks to the British Mirror.
In his remarks, the Liverpool star added: “I would be very surprised if many would say anyone other than Mohamed Salah.”
He continued: “Mohamed Salah is a constant source of scoring goals, he has been for a few years as well, I may have been surprised when he first came and scored all these goals, but I think questioning his abilities by the masses is long gone.”
Owen continued: “So for me, he is the most consistent goalscorer in the Premier League, against Manchester City when you need a player capable of scoring and taking whatever chance he will be, Mohamed Salah, to give you the win.”
Michael Owen ended his remarks, saying: “He showed his character in that game, the wonderful mentality he has, Mohamed Salah is certainly still the only person, if you think you need a goal, I’m still looking for Mo to score him.”
