Since Mo Salah’s return to the Premier League, he has been an incredible weapon to Jurgen’s Klopp side.
His consistent form and goal scoring records has helped Liverpool to win the Champions league and the Premier league in the last four years.
Liverpool are also now on course to win either one or both of the aforementioned trophies this campaign.
And just like has been the case, the Egyptian has been dominating the headlines, scoring and putting in incredible records for The Kop.
The stats show that Salah who currently leads the Premier League Golden boot race has been influential in his last 15 games for Liverpool in the Premier League.

Such numbers will certainly give Liverpool an incredible amount of confidence, put fear in opposition players but on the other hand put Klopp’s men in danger.
Salah: Liverpool’s blessing and curse
With the availability of the left footed magician at Klopp’s disposal it is easier to see Liverpool winning so many football games this season.
While they have had a leaky defence despite the return of Van Dijk this season, Liverpool have had to rely on the Egyptian to bail them out of trouble on several occasions.
And the former Roma player’s ability to turn up always means his side can outscore teams when they are conceding.
Salah is exactly the type of player that title contenders such as Chelsea are lacking, thus their inability to win games now that their defence is struggling.
On the other hand, Salah’s ridiculous contribution shows how over reliant the team can be on the player. Mane and Firmino have not really hit the ground running for Liverpool this season, leaving only Jota to contribute alongside Salah.
With AFCON fast approaching, Liverpool would have to find a way to deal without Salah for a couple of weeks and if care is not taken, Klopp’s men might struggle to put up high level performances and results in his absence.
