Mohamed Salah's impressive run of form has caught the eye of former Liverpool and Real Madrid forward Michael Owen.

Owen, who himself boasted extreme pace on his day, has described the Egyptian's talent as 'frightening' with defenders struggling to come to grips with the attacker's pace.

The 25-year-old continued his impressive start to the season, leading the club to a 3-0 win over Maribor in the UEFA Champions League this week as he now sets his sights on downing West Ham United.

Salah has scored 10 goals since arriving at Anfield - an impressive return after 16 matches with the former Chelsea winger's ratio matching that of Fernando Torres and bettering Luis Suarez tally at the start of their respective careers on Merseyside.

“Salah is frightening really, he gets so many chances,” Owen told BT Sport.

“His goal return is really impressive, he seems to be one of them players the chances always fall to. He’s got great movement.”
