For Mohamed Salah, a trip to Stamford Bridge serves as a reminder of how far he has come. The Egyptian has blossomed since he was cut loose by Chelsea as a youngster. As ever, he will be eager to show his former club what they are missing on Super Sunday.
He heads to west London having made an explosive start to the season, his match-winning hat-trick in Liverpool’s 4-3 victory over Leeds United on the opening day prompting Gary Neville to say he is performing at “an absolutely different level”. “He looks mean, he looks hungry, he looks strong,” added the Sky Sports pundit on Monday Night Football.
Salah’s brilliance can be taken for granted at times. Jamie Carragher said his achievements were “underappreciated” after a 3-2 win over West Ham in February. But his devastating performance at Anfield on Saturday was a reminder that he is on track to achieve Premier League greatness.
Raising expectations for himself …
