Merson has criticized Liverpool star Mohamed Salah despite impressive form

Player turned pundit, Paul Merson, has criticized in-form Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah for missing too many chances even though the Egyptian is leading the scoring charts for the Reds.

Mo Salah has been in inspirational form this season upon his return to the Premier League with Liverpool from Roma as the Egyptian has already scored a sensational 17 goals in 21 appearances for the Merseyside club.

This impressive goal-scoring form has led many fans and pundit to revel on Salah but former Arsenal attacker Paul Merson has surprisingly expressed an indifferent opinion regarding the 25-year-old.

Merson told reporters in a recent interview that despite impressive performances by Salah, the Egyptian has been very wasteful with his finishing and the winger will need to be more efficient if he wants to establish a legacy at Ainfield.

Merson told Sky Sports, “Liverpool are a bag of revels. Going forward they are phenomenal and Mohamed Salah has been outstanding. He’s settled quicker than snow.

“People say ‘why did Chelsea let him go’ but he’s a different player now. Certain players suit certain clubs – I think he’s improved immensely, although I don’t think he’s the greatest finisher in the world.

“He’s missed a lot of chances. He could have had even more goals to his name, but I love watching him. Brighton are tough to beat at home as Manchester City found out earlier this season, but Liverpool will find a way through.”
