EPL: Klopp must consider dropping ‘poor’ Salah, says Liverpool hero Aldridge

Liverpool hero John Aldridge believes Jurgen Klopp needs to consider dropping Mohamed Salah.

Aldridge wrote for the Sunday World: “The alarm bells will be ringing for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp after the 0-0 draw at Everton and Mohamed Salah will be at the heart of his concern.

“Liverpool had more than enough chances to win at Goodison Park, with Toffees keeper Jordan Pickford the man of the match by some distance.

“When I look at this Liverpool team and compare it to what we have been watching over the last couple of years, things just don’t look right.

“They are lacking fluidity in the final third of the pitch and a lot of the chances they created would have ended in goals if the strikers had aimed for the corners of the net.

“All too often, Liverpool’s forwards are giving keepers a chance to make saves, with the 9-0 thrashing of Bournemouth the one exception to that this season. It’s worrying.

“And when it comes to analysing Salah’s contributions, Klopp needs to decide whether he is justifying his place in the line-up.

“Salah hasn’t had the same focus we saw from him at this stage last season, when he was clearly the best player in the world.

“He was really poor at Goodison Park, even though he so nearly snatched the game for Liverpool in the final seconds with a shot that Pickford (inset) tipped onto the post.”
