Van Dijk

Egyptian international forward and Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has not been in a good goalscoring form so far this season and that has raised a lot of concerns from his fans but there is nothing to worry about, according to defender Virgil Van Dijk.

Last season was a blast for the former AS Roma player as he emerged as the Premier League’s highest goalscorer and scored an average of a goal per game but that is yet to repeat itself.

What is most disturbing is that Mohamed Salah has not scored a goal in his last 7 games, the longest barren run for the star player in a very long time.

However, Virgil Van Dijk has stated that there is nothing to worry about expressing confidence that Mohamed Salah will soon start scoring again. He is of the opinion that the international break is a big advantage for the star player to rest, noting that he will return fresh to begin scoring goals.

Senegal international Sadio Mane has been the man providing the cover for the Egyptian international as he has been hitting the back of the net in almost all games. The Fulham game makes it his 11th goal in 11 games.
