English international Joe Gomez has described Salah's goalscoring record since his move to Liverpool as 'ridiculous'.

This is after the Egyptian international hit the back of the net for the Reds in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea at the Anfield Stadium in an English Premier League game.

Salah, who broke the deadlock in the 65th minute against his former side, netted his 15th goal of the season out of 20 competitive appearances for the Reds.
As a result, the 25-year-old is the league’s top goalscorer with 10 goals having joined Liverpool from Italian side AS Roma prior to the current season.
"He's come in and he's been a massive addition to us, unbelievable. The goals he has scored but also his general play, his link-up,” Gomez told Liverpool’s official website.

"Our whole attacking force is quality, everybody knows that, so hopefully he can keep doing it for us."

Salah's goal was ultimately cancelled out by a late goal from Chelsea substitute Willian, but Gomez remained keen to take the positives from an industrious performance.
“I think we battled well and were aggressive from the start. We dominated generally, created some good chances and Mo got another goal for us, then we looked like we were going to hold on,” the 20-year-old said about his club teammate.
"But it was a decent bit of a skill [from Willian], I don't know whether he meant it or not but it's unlucky for us and disappointing not to get all three points.

"We knew they'd have the wing-backs wide and Hazard and Morata would come and pick up the ball and do what they do,” he continued.

"We were wary of their threats and did our best to try and stop them. We had our fair bit of play as well - they had their chances but so did we.

"They're a top side, they're champions, so we've got to take the positives."

Salah will be keen to continue his scoring form for Liverpool when they face Stock City away in a league game on Wednesday.
