Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler believes Mohamed Salah will get back among the goals but does not expect the Egyptian to hit the heights of last season.

Salah scored 44 goals in all competitions for Liverpool last season and claimed both the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and Football Writers’ Player of the Year awards.

But Salah has so far managed just three goals in 11 games this term, half as many as he had scored at the same stage last season.

“I’m not saying he’s having a bad year so far. He’s still a good player, he’s still an excellent player but to replicate what he did last year will be unbelievable,” Fowler told Sky Sports News.

“I think he’ll still score goals, I think he’ll still score a lot of goals.

“What I like about Mo Salah is that his work ethic is brilliant, he doesn’t shy away from anything. What I would be more worried about is if he wasn’t getting chances.

“He will bang the goals in. I’m not sure he’ll hit the heights he did last year but he is still a magnificent player. He will still be a danger throughout the Premier League [season].”

Liverpool are towards the summit of the Premier League and – like Chelsea and Manchester City – have taken 20 points from their first eight games.

Fowler believes most Liverpool fans are delighted by the team’s start to the season and credits boss Jurgen Klopp with getting the side into a position where they can challenge once they return from the international break.

“You can’t argue with the points on the board, [with Liverpool being] joint top. I think at the start of the season you’d have taken that all day long.” Fowler added.

“They’re unbeaten in the league but there is a long, long way to go and I don’t think anyone is getting too carried away but he [Klopp] has certainly got the players fired up and ready for the challenge.”
