Mo Salah's Scoring Burst Leaves Liverpool Fans Feeling Smug

One-season wonder?
One-season wonder?

A three-game, four-goal week for Mo Salah brought the Liverpool star’s scoring ration into line with last season’s sparkling efforts and must have gone some way to dispelling the laughably premature idea that his form last season was a flash in the metaphorical pan.

The Saturday-to-Saturday spree took him past the fifty goal mark in a Red shirt, making him the fasted to accomplish that feat by quite some distance, in an astonishing 65 games.

He’s now bagged seven goals in the opening fourteen games of his domestic campaign, compared to nine at the same stage last season.

And claims that the Egyptian is unhappy in his home of Anfield are surely looking a bit weak, based off a reading of his body language alone, if the warm smile that followed his goal in the dismantling of Cardiff City was anything to go by.

Last season’s Golden Boot winner will be hard to best for any of his challengers, and Reds fans have been delighting in his proving of his doubters wrong across social media this past weekend.

@Kloppholic got things started: “One season wonder, Mohamed Salah, now has 51 goals in 66 games. That goal was his 17th goal in his last 14 games at Anfield. Keep talking.”

@MIKLFC bats off the tired ‘one-season wonder’ tag: “Well, it looks like Mohamed Salah is well on course to be a three season wonder."

@K7al_L3afta looks to the future: “Liverpool haters in 2022: "Haha Salah is just a five seasons wonder lol"

@Cianaldinho: Probably getting a bit over-excited (while Lionel Messi is still breathing): “On a real one if salah keeps up this form he could actually win the Ballon d’Or”

If their much-loved number 11 continues in this vein of form then he can expect a stream of the same sort of chuffed nature to continue all season long.
