Fulham 1-2 Liverpool - What the media and statistics say

Share

Things seemed to be going their way after Sadio Mane opened the scoring in the second half, but a shock equaliser from Ryan Babel with 15-minutes left had the Reds heading for a draw.

They now sit in first place in the Premier League over the March worldwide break, two points above Manchester City who have a game in hand.

Once again though Mohamed Salah, who's been the star man at Anfield since joining in 2017, went missing on Sunday.

Since January 19th, Sadio Mane has scored nine goals in nine games with goals against Leicester City and West Ham United crucial with Liverpool managing to escape potential banana skins with a point, while he won that all-important penalty at the weekend against Fulham, which helped Liverpool pick up a much-needed three points.

He failed to make a real impact on the game and has not scored since early February.

The Egypt global, who occupies joint-top spot on the list of highest-scoring African across Europe's top five leagues, extended his barren scoring streak to five successive games in the top flight, and seven consecutive encounters across all competitions.

"He's still got 17 goals, so he's not having that bad a season but he's probably just trying a little bit too hard", Heskey told Sky Sports.

Sadio Mane has given himself a great opportunity to clinch the Premier League Golden Boot this season, according to one of Liverpool's finest ever goalscorers.

Considering his importance to the Reds, it's nearly inconceivable that Liverpool would ever sell Mohamed Salah in the summer, especially with qualification to the Champions League next season already a near guarantee.

"He's been a constant threat".

Do you think Salah is a selfish player?
