Garth Crooks has said that Mohamed Salah is playing some of his best football ever since joining Liverpool in 2017.

Writing for BBC Sport, the pundit claimed that the £34m attacker is playing some of the best team football he has seen from the winger since arriving six years ago.

Salah created two goals for the Reds as Liverpool came from behind to beat Wolves 3-1, with the winger’s performance one of the best of the season on an individual level.

And Crooks was astonished, with the pundit saying: “He might not be scoring goals in bucketfuls anymore but Salah is playing the best team football I’ve seen him play since his arrived at Anfield.

“He was outstanding again against Wolves and hasn’t put a foot wrong since the Saudis tried to lure him to their Pro League with mind-boggling amounts of cash.

“All credit to the Egypt superstar, who has conducted himself in a manner dignified and respectful to the club who have made him a world-class player. A model professional.”

Few would have predicted Salah to become Liverpool’s main creative heartbeat this season, yet that’s what the 31-year-old has done this campaign.

The forward is the joint-highest assist maker in the Premier League with four, and whilst a lack of goals might be a concern, Salah’s performances speak for themselves.

Indeed, the forward is thriving in this new creative role, and goals will shortly follow given the nature of Salah’s attacking style and how potent the winger can be when in top form.
