Liverpool are overwhelming favourites to beat their rivals at Anfield today and they can regain top spot from Manchester City by doing so.
Salah scored an incredible 44 goals in his debut season at Liverpool and, although hes failed to match the same rate this term, he still has an impressive 13 goals in 26 appearances.
And Mourinho – who managed Salah at Chelsea – has warned his squad that the Egyptian poses Liverpools biggest threat.
The Salah I knew at Chelsea was a project player. Now he is one of the best in the world, says Mourinho.
He has developed incredibly well since then on every level. He was a fast fragile boy and how he is a fast strong man. Physically amazing.
He was not pyschologically adapted to the Premier League when he came from a small club in Switzerland (Basel) to a big club in England.
I played him at White Hart Lane and The Eithad and it was too much for him. Now he plays anywhere, Barcelona, Madrid, and hes like “I am Mo Salah and I am afraid of nobody.”
Every match we try to analyse opponents, the strengths and the weaknesses, and when you go to Liverpool they have many strengths, but of course he is nuclear in the strength.
So do we have to speak and think about him? I think we have to think about him. Of course we have to think about him and think of the best way to cope with a fantastic player like he is.
