The speedy winger has taken no time adapting to his new club, quickly becoming a vital part of the Reds offense.

Former Liverpool and England defender Jamie Carragher has praised Mohamed Salah for his incredible start of his career at Anfield. The Egypt international arrived from AS Roma in a £39m deal, but has proven a great bargain, netting 24 goals and providing 7 assists in 31 appearances so far.

Even though Salah was out for a short period of time, he returned back to action against City and once again put his name on the scoresheet, taking his Premier League tally to 18 goals this season.

And the British pundit Carragher can hardly think of anyone, who has come close to making a better start at Anfield than the Egypt international.

“I think that the start Salah’s made, I can’t actually think of a Liverpool signing who’s ever in the history of the club made a better start as a signing,” Carragher said as quoted by Liverpool Echo.

“He (Suárez) was maybe a better signing all in all over three or four years, but in terms of the actual start, as soon as you come into the club.

“John Barnes when he came in the late 80s he was fantastic as soon as he came in. I can’t think of too many others who have made the impact.”
