Frank Lampard, who played alongside the Egyptian winger for six months at Chelsea, has warned the Italian side from Salah “the most dangerous player in world football”, saying his former club will be nervous to play against him.

“If they play with a high line like they did last week, they’ll be in big trouble. Roma will have issues in how they set up tactically, Mo Salah will have scared them,” Frank Lampard wrote in his Evening Standard column.
