Former star hailed for his technical and goal scoring abilities saying no one could have predicted him to be that good.

Liverpool’s all-time top goal scorer in the English Premier League era analysed Salah’s abilities especially his performances against Everton and Tottenham Hotspurs. Fowler described the Egyptian winger as brilliant and continued by stating that Salah’s goal against the Toffees is his favorite of the 25-year-old.

“The pace he has means that he will always get chances and he has managed to put a lot away. He has missed some but I’d be more worried if he wasn’t getting them. You can’t argue with it. He is getting in positions where maybe you think he shouldn’t be getting there but the pace he has means he can get away from defenders,” Fowler told the Times.

“He is good over a few yards and in tight spaces where he can move away from defenders, and a lot of the time he gets his shot away early. When a forward does that and the goalkeeper is not ready you will probably score a lot more than you will miss.

“I liked the Everton goal actually, not because it was Everton, but because it had a little bit of everything: strength, guile and the finish from where he was at that angle was fantastic. You look at his second goal against Tottenham the other day and he had no divine right to score that one from where he was.”

Salah’s top form so far this season came as a surprise to Fowler, pundits and previous players and the fans as no one knew he would reach this height/

“To manoeuvre his body to get into positions where he can get shots away I think is brilliant. That is why the Everton goal was my pick of his goals so far. We knew he was a good player but I don’t think anyone could have predicted what would happen and I hope it continues for a long time,” concluded Fowler.
