Mohamed Salah

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah reveals his Chelsea flop was due to lack of playing time:

“I didn’t do well because I didn’t play many games,” the Egypt international claimed.

“I was there for one year, but I only played during the first six months. After that, I hardly participated.

“I went to Fiorentina, scored goals, then in Rome I played very well and returned to England. But it’s not a matter of succeeding or not…”

“This year I’m scoring more goals. In any case, I want to help the team to win titles or be in a good position in the league.”

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson spoke after his side’s home draw against Premier League champions Chelsea. Former Blues’ winger Mohamed Salah was the first scorer of the game as he was quick in exploiting a clever pass from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain into the penalty area.

The Egyptian star has now scored his 15th goal for the Reds: “He just keeps going, which is good for us –  Henderson told BT Sport – It was a fantastic finish and I thought he got another late on.”

When asked about the game, he added: “We’re disappointed, I thought we would hang on for all three points so they will probably be very, very happy with the point,” Henderson added.

“It was a game between two good teams, tactically, we both had chances but I think Chelsea will be happier with the point.”

The Premier League big match of this fixture 13 at Anfield ends 1-1: if Simon Mignolet was the the hero of the first half Willian and Thibaut Courtois were the ones of the second part, with the first one equalising with only five minutes to go and the second one making a miracle on Mo Salah at 91′, it would have been probably the winner for the Reds.

Chelsea were less brilliant in the second half respect to the first one and Liverpool were more in control of the game, the Blues weren’t dangerous until 80′, with Alonso missing a clear chance in front of Mignolet: until then Liverpool had deserved to be 1-0 up, with Salah scoring after a super play by Coutinho and Oxlade-Chamberlain. The Egyptian didn’t celebrate in sign of respect for his former team.

As we reported before the Blues were better in the first part of the game when they created three dangerous chances and Mignolet saved all of them being superb on Hazard and Drinkwater and deflecting in corner on Zappacosta.

Mo Salah trashed the only clear chance Liverpool had in the the first part when he shot wide alone in front of Courtois right before half-time.

Fabregas was surprisingly left on the bench by Conte in this important clash but it was when the Spaniard entered after Salah’s goal that the Blues started to improve their playing in the second half.

David Luiz was benched again by the Italian boss and now the situation is every day worse for the Brazilian defender, set to left Stamford Bridge after falling out with Conte.

With this important draw, and thanks to Spurs’ 1-1 at home with WBA, Chelsea maintain the third place in the Premier League table with 26 points behind Manchester ( 29) and Manchester City ( 34): Citizens still have to play against Huddersfield Town away, tomorrow afternoon, and can increase their gap oh the chasers.

Simon Mignolet was the hero of these 45′ at Anfield saving three clear chances for Chelsea in five minutes in the middle of the first half: first on Eden Hazard, then on Danny Drinkwater and finally on Davide Zappacosta.

The Reds were dangerous only in the end of the first part with their star-man Mo Salah, whose shot was slightly wide.

Other 45 minutes to try to win this game for the Blues!

Ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League game between Chelsea and Liverpool many are focusing their attention on Salah who has already netted 14 goals this season and is also a former Blues player.

However, during his press conference Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has insisted the Egypt international won’t be the only threat his team has to face tomorrow at Anfield: “I know him very well; he played in Italy for many years,” – Conte said – “Salah is a good player, he is very dangerous. He is a technical player, but at the same time is very fast, very strong, very good in one-v-ones and very good at finishing. I will pay great attention to him, but also to Mane, Coutinho, Firmino, Sturridge. Liverpool have great potential as a team.”

Eden Hazard will meet former Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah tomorrow as the Blues face Liverpool at Anfield, and the Belgian star has revealed he’s in touch with the Egyptian.

 “It’s always good to play against a friend. – he told Chelsea’s official website this morning – It is good to have friends in this world, because in football you can’t have a lot of friends”.

“When you are not playing in one club you need to go. All the players want to play. In this period, we had me, Willian, Oscar, Juan Mata also, so for him it was not easy, but he is a top player. We know the quality he has”.

Salah was sold to Serie A side Fiorentina as a part of the deal which led Juan Cuadrado to Stamford Bridge in February 2015: “You need a chance, I remember he took his chance at Fiorentina, – Hazard noted – And I am just happy for him”.

Chelsea signed Salah on a £12m move from Basel in January 2014, under the management of Jose Mourinho.

Mohamed Salah has been, for sure, Liverpool top player in these first months of the season.


Chelsea will visit Anfield next Saturday and Reds manager Jurgen Klopp praised the Egyptian star, claiming he is in a top form moment:

“This is the Mo Salah period, no problem with that, well deserved. But he’s also very important even when he’s not scoring because he stretches the formation.

“The speed of the boys means the last line drops – there can be no other reaction. And then we have the space to play. The speed players aren’t only for counter-attacking. Sometimes that’s not possible. It’s about stretching formation and creating space for the rest.”

Salah immediately impressed at Liverpool while he couldn’t make an impact when he signed for Chelsea – 19 appearances – three years ago: Klopp insists that his in-form forward did not return to the Premier League with revenge in mind.

“I don’t think it’s like this.

“Maybe it was one reason he came back, but he’s not like ‘now I will show you the real Mo Salah’.

“He’s completely relaxed. For sure he wanted to show a little bit he’s better than that, but everyone knew it already.

Mohamed Salah joined Liverpool from AS Roma on a £35m move on Thursday, which means that Chelsea will receive £2.3m.

The Blues inserted a sell-on clause when the Egyptian winger left Stamford Bridge heading to Serie A in 2015.

Salah made 11 appearances during his first season with Chelsea, before being loaned to Fiorentina and then sold to AS Roma on a permanent move in June 2015.

Mohamed Salah joins Liverpool from AS Roma on a £39 move, the Premier League outfit have announced the deal.

“I’m very excited to be here. I’m very happy, – Salah told the club’s official website. – I will give 100 per cent and give everything for the club. I really want to win something for this club”.

Chelsea are set to receive a £2.7m bonus from the sale of the Egypt international, who left Stamford Bridge on loan in 2015 before the Blues decided to sell him permanently last August for £12m.

Salah becomes Liverpool’s most expensive signing in their history as Andy Carroll was paid £35m in 2011.

Former Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah is closing in on a £35m move to Premier League rivals Liverpool, according to Sky Sport in Italy.

It is understood Roma have turned down the Reds’ initial £28m offer for the Egypt international, who would be reportedly eager to move back to England following the unsuccessfull spell at Stamford Bridge under José Mourinho.

Salah’s signing for that fee would equal Liverpool’s transfer record paid for Andy Carroll in 2011.


Chelsea will face Burnley at Turf Moor on on Thursday 19 April, as the club's official website confirmed earlier this evening. "Kick-off will be 7.45pm and it...
