Robbie Fowler backed Mohamed Salah to get back to top form, but does doubt he will match his feats from last season

The 26-year-old forward capped off an impressive debut campaign for Liverpool with 44 goals in all competitions and numerous individual awards.

After just three goals in 11 games this season though, fans and pundits alike are beginning to question whether or not Salah was just a one-season wonder.

“I’m not saying he’s having a bad year so far. He’s still a good player, he’s still an excellent player but to replicate what he did last year will be unbelievable,” Fowler told Sky Sports.

“I think he’ll still score goals, I think he’ll still score a lot of goals.

“What I like about Mo Salah is that his work ethic is brilliant, he doesn’t shy away from anything. What I would be more worried about is if he wasn’t getting chances.

“He will bang the goals in. I’m not sure he’ll hit the heights he did last year but he is still a magnificent player. He will still be a danger throughout the Premier League [season].”

Salah’s Liverpool teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold also defended the star earlier this week and insists he remains as vital as ever for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
