Mo Salah has been hailed as one of the signings of the season as he continues to rip the Premier League apart.
The Egypt international scored two in Wednesday’s win over Stoke City, continuing his fine form in front of goal for Liverpool, taking his tally to 12 goals so far in the Premier League. As a winger, for him to be the league’s top scorer so far is immense.
Eyebrows were raised when the Reds splashed out £34m on the ‘Chelsea reject’, but he has well and truly shown his worth with his performances so far this season and has given fans much to look forward to during the remainder of the season.
Twitter is often a dark place when a player is out of form, but it is fair to say Salah will have a field day reading some of the tweets written about him in recent days.
Let’s take a look…

Still a long way to go in the season yet, but Salah has already outscored Liverpool’s last few top-goalscorers.

Not sure that’s how it works, but why not!
I'm applying for Egyptian citizenship. Salah makes me wanna be an Egyptian.

And finally, a sly dig at United!
Can I remind you that Salah has 5 more goals than Lukaku and he costed double the amount than Salah ?
