Everton boss Allardyce hails this Liverpool star

Speaking after his sides draw against Liverpool, Everton manager Sam Allardyce heaped praise on Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah and labelled him the biggest threat in the Premier League.

The Egypt international has been a revelation this season having so far scored 13 goals in the League.

He was again on target during the weekend for Liverpool against the Toffees and the Reds looked on course for victory until Wayne Rooney equalized from the spot after Dejan Lovren was adjudged to have brought down Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the box.

Big Sam whose team have been struggling this season was happy to take a point away from the game.

“Don’t put your hands on the forward in the box. No need to do it. Shepherd him away from goal, he didn’t, he (Dejan Lovren) put his hands on him,” said Allardyce.

“You can’t say Liverpool drew because Coutinho or Firmino wasn’t on the pitch; they had Mane and Salah on the pitch. We kept Coutinho and Firmino quiet once they came on.

“Great goal. He’s (Salah) Liverpool’s biggest threat, probably in the Premier League at the moment.”
