Despite recording a mammoth 9-0 victory in the Premier League this past weekend, Liverpool star Mohamed Salah ended the game having no goal contributions. After the game, Salah declined a post match interview as he reflected on his performance.

In search of a reaction following their 2-1 loss to bitter rivals Manchester United last week, Liverpool made light work of Bournemouth and got back to their goal scoring best.

Luis Diaz and Roberto Firmino ended the game with a brace each, while Harvey Elliot, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk and Fabio Carvalho all for their names on the scoresheet.

Perhaps on a different occasion, Salah could well have contributed to a number of goals given their zest for finding the back of the net but the Egyptian star uncharacteristically fired blanks.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Salah was approached for a post match interview of which he declined, which could have suggested his frustration at not getting on the scoresheet.

However, it was reported that Salah ‘chuckled’ after responding with a ’No’ to doing a post match interview for the Mixed Zone.

“I didn’t score any!” Salah said according to the Liverpool Echo, as he walked off while having a light moment with the journalists after the game.

In the current campaign, Salah featured on five occasions for Liverpool, scoring three goals while recording one assist along the way.
