Mohamed Salah is in the Best Form of his Career
Mohamed Salah is in the best form of his life, which is saying a lot. Liverpool is currently one point behind Chelsea for first place honors in the Premier League, primarily because of the magic on display from the Egyptian Sensation.
In eight Premier League matches this season, Salah has already racked up seven goals and four assists. The goals, as mentioned earlier total currently have Salah tied for first place in goals this season with Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy, a mainstay in the category for the past five years.
The number of goals that Salah scores each year always keeps him in contention for the league’s golden boot award. However, this year, it’s not just the number of goals but creativity and flair coming along with it.

Last Saturday against Watford, Liverpool netted a monstrous five goals against the Hornets, keeping a clean sheet in the process. And while Roberto Firmino was the star of the match with a hat trick, Salah’s goal set the internet ablaze, as fans marveled at his footwork.
Salah took nearly ten touches, dribbling through and around Watford’s defense until he took a heavy touch, faked a shot, and perfectly slid the ball into the far corner. Check out the world-class goal below:
Even more fascinating is that hi-definition showed Salah’s magnificent class display in the previous week against Manchester City in nearly the same fashion. Simply put, Salah is emerging into not only one of the best forwards in the world but one of the best overall players on Earth.

Of course, the likes of Messi, Ronaldo, Mbappe, and Lewandowski will always come to mind when thinking of the best player in the world. However, if Salah continues this level of play throughout the season, he has a chance of being the first Egyptian player to capture the coveted ballon d’Or.
