Early Season Salah Form a Good Indicator for Liverpool
Mohamed Salah is in superb form and his early season performances are certainly a good indicator for success at Liverpool this season.
It is fair to say that when you think about English teams who can win silverware, Liverpool will be one of the first names that comes to mind. When you think of Liverpool players who can impact a game, Mo Salah will be one of the first that comes to mind. It shouldn’t be a surprise then to see how well he has started, and his early season form is certainly a good indicator for success at Liverpool this season.
There are two main trophies that Liverpool are aiming to win, they would love to get their Premier League title back and would also love another victory in the Champions League. This is where most of their focus will be, and this is where Salah is needed to shine.
The Egyptian forward has scored six goals from seven league games so far for The Redmen, a tally that puts him joint-top of the goal scorer standings early in the season. When Liverpool played Manchester City, their biggest game so far, Salah stepped up another gear, putting in a brilliant performance that was capped off by a wonderful goal.
Can Liverpool Win One of the Two Major Trophies?
It is great news for fans that Salah has started well, but in terms of winning things, right now that means nothing. His form needs to continue and he needs to drive the team forward to success, can he do that?
The bookmakers don’t make them favourites to win either the Premier League or the Champions League, but they are towards the head of the betting. They are behind Manchester City and Chelsea in the betting for the Premier League, and behind City, PSG and Bayern Munich in the betting for the Champions League. With football betting offers available to use with many bookmakers, those looking to back Liverpool for success over the course of this season are able to.
The Keys to Success
There are two elements that will help to give Liverpool the best chance of success this season. The first is injuries, they need to stay injury free, so make sure to keep an eye on the latest Liverpool news for injury stories that could harm their chances of winning anything.
We saw them struggle with this last season, a repeat would certainly make things tough again.
Secondly, the ability to rest and rotate their best players, especially the front three, which Salah is a part of. What Liverpool have now, thanks to the signing of Diego Jota, is four forwards for those front three positions. This means that someone can always be rested, if all four are fit and available.
This should help to keep Salah fresh in what is going to be a busy season. Yes, when the big games come around, everyone will want him in the starting eleven, and that will always be the case. However, if manager Jurgen Klopp can rest him at the right times, that could aid Salah to be even better as we get into the latter part of the season.
