Pretty selfish tbh Richter (@richtermatt3) September 18, 2018Salah, who was Liverpool’s standout player last season across competitions, has struggled to impact matches the way this season.In the six matches he has played so far in the Premier League and the Champions League, Salah has found the back of the net only twice and has two assists to his name.During Tuesday’s game against PSG, Salah looked tentative and vulnerable and he even failed to exude confidence when he had the ball.Read – Roberto Firmino’s winner helps Liverpool edge past PSGIn the 58th minute of the match, Salah scored a disallowed goal, where PSG got a free kick as Sturridge caught goalkeeper Alphonse Areola in an unpleasant area.The referee halted the celebrations of the goal with a whistle for the foul, which many felt was wrong and Salah was left wanting.advertisementIn fact, the second goal that PSG scored through Kylian Mbappe in the 83rd minute came after Salah had lost the ball by trying to make a cross pass.Eventually Salah was substituted by Xherdan Shaqiri in the 86th minute of the match and he was on the bench when Firmino scored the winner.Firmino also made it to the field as a substitute in the 72nd minute since he suffered an eye injury during Liverpool’s Premier League win over Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend.Firmino even celebrated his goal covering his injured eye perhaps giving a homage to the eye.Just after the match, people took to Twitter to question Salah’s reaction and people surprisingly asked whether Salah was truly not happy as seen in the video.What’s @MoSalah doing here?!?!

That’s not a team player.”Even as opinions were divided over the two clips regarding Salah’s reaction to Liverpool’s winning goal, the “Egyptian King” surely became one of the biggest talking points of a match that put top-class football on display.last_img
