Mohamed Salah is a man in form, as the Egypt international has taken the Premier League by storm this season.

He currently tops the scoring chart in the Premier League with nine goals so far and has scored 14 goals in 16 appearances in all competitions. His scintillating football and breathtaking pace has left many wondering if it was the same person that struggled for form for Chelsea just a few years ago.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp thinks Salah struggled at Chelsea because he was still young and it was difficult to break through a very experienced side at that age.

He said: “He was a kid when he came to Chelsea, and we have heard a few times that’s quite difficult, and in that time they were really successful. It was quite difficult to come through.

“A little bit less muscle, a little bit less physical, and you fly through the Premier League — not like he’s flying now — but one bodycheck, you understand. With his body shape that’s now different. He’s a man now, he was a kid at Chelsea, now he’s a man. That’s good.”
