Liverpool's defensive problems £75 million heavier — English Premier League

Frankly, that's utter nonsense. He's a winger, really, who cuts in.

"Both were a penalty and nothing to say, it is not controversial - it is nothing", he said.

Former Tottenham striker Ahmed (Mido) Hossam says he is proud fellow Egyptian Mohamed Salah has overtaken his record of goals in the English top flight to become the highest scoring Egyptian player in Premier League history. But that's how it is when victory is snatched from you - the snatcher "victorious" even with a draw while the victim feels as if he's been mugged. If they do, then they are usually in 'the world-class' bracket.

"He's a player completely focused on football, dedicated totally to the game".

The Senegal international endured a night of contrasting emotions as Monaco came from two goals down to beat Lyon 3-2. Despite once again managing to concede a couple of goals, the defence was for the most part very good.


And Wenger admitted that he enjoyed watching his new-look team in action:"When you have new players it gives always a little positive swing", he said. It must be incredibly frustrating for Klopp.

So far, the Egyptian has registered 21 league goals for the Reds, second only to Tottenham's Harry Kane on 22.

"I don't know what they [match officials] discussed, but it's not to change".

"The softest touch in the whole game decides the game".

Salah has now hit 28 goals in 33 appearances in all competitions in his maiden Liverpool season, and Graeme Souness - another former Reds great - also saluted him.


At that point, on this roller-coaster Anfield evening, the prevailing emotion was monumental relief, and when Salah wriggled his way through a posse of Spurs defenders on the line to plant firmly past Hugo Lloris all was forgotten.

"Salah is on top form, he is strong and fast", Mido added.

The Magpies are only one point above the relegation zone in 16th place after failing to win for a fourth consecutive league match.

Perhaps playing on the left isn't helping.

"Sometimes people complain about the referee, but when they are right it is good to tell everyone".
