Salah proving more than just goalscorer for top-of-the-table Liverpool

Mohamed Salah has proven he is one of the most dangerous scorers in the Premier League during his time at Liverpool, but he’s also not bad as a creator either.

Salah was at it again on Friday, as he turned home a Fabinho cross with a deft finish with the side of his boot to give Liverpool a 1-0 lead against Wolves in the 18th minute.

The goal proved the winner in a 2-0 victory for the Reds at the Molineux Stadium, as Liverpool remained undefeated in the Premier League and guaranteed they will sit top of the table on Christmas Day.

Salah, last year’s Premier League Golden Boot winner while setting a new record for Premier League goals in a 38-game season, moved to the top of the goal charts, one ahead of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

But Salah has proven more than just a goalscorer at Liverpool as he chipped in 10 assists last season in the English top-flight, as well as four more in the Champions League.

He would turn provider once more in the second half as he chipped in a cross that found the boot of Virgil Van Dijk, who redirected home for his first league goal for the Anfield outfit to double Liverpool’s advantage.

The assist was Salah’s fifth in the Premier League this season, and the second time this season he’s scored and assisted on a goal in the same match.

In fact, since arriving at Anfield last season, Salah has managed that accomplishment eight times in the Premier League – more than any other player in the English top flight over that same span.
