2. Goals from wider positions
Salah has an incredible record for his national side and has a goals return of 17 in 26 internationals to go with 20 goals in one and half seasons at Basel. Although he plays in a wider role than most attackers, he uses his intelligence to find space. He plays in an inverted style on to his favored left foot, and looks to come deep to get the ball, and has put in impressive performances in the Champions League this season.
According to European football expert Ross Dunbar, “sharp decision-making and movement is key to the Egyptian’s overall game and Salah has superb composure in-front of goal.” Liverpool have been crying out for such a player, with both Raheem Sterling and Jordan Henderson missing gilt-edged chances in recent games that have cost the Reds dearly against the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea. Having a composed head may help in burying more of the numerous chances the Reds create.
