Issa Diop: No special plans to stop Mohamed Salah
The Hammers will host Liverpool on Monday night at the London Stadium, with the Reds looking to get back to winning ways after their 1-1 draw with Leicester City.
22-year-old centre-back Issa Diop, who has been West Ham’s most consistent performer since his arrival last summer, has played every Premier League game since making his debut in August.
Speaking to whufc.com, he said: “Liverpool are the biggest test in English football, along with Manchester City, as they have a very good team and one of the best strikers in the world in Mo Salah.
“I don’t think they are unstoppable. I’ll just play the game like any other one. We know Salah is a big player but, for me, I will prepare the same and play the game the same way.
“Before every game I watch clips of all the strikers I am going to face so we know what they like and don’t like, but a big player like him can do anything, so he is difficult to stop, but it is not impossible!” he added.
