Rush: the goals will flow again for Salah at LFC

While the general consensus at the start of the season from the press was that Mo Salah was a flop and a one season wonder, most LFC fans knew that we were seeing the performances from Mo, just not the goals.

Fast forward a few months and he's back joint top scorer in the Premier League again and we'd been proven right.

But once again, Salah is struggling for goals and while he's having good games, peppered with frustrating ones, the press have again set about laying in to him.

At home though, we all know that Mo is one of the best around. In the world, in fact, not just the Premier League and former Liverpool striker Ian Rush thinks the goals will come from Mo again soon.

Talking ahead of the huge game today via the Liverpool Echo, he said: "You have times like that but the key thing is keeping your confidence.

"Never get scared to get into the positions to miss. Once you get scared about that, then it becomes a problem.

"If you are getting the chances and missing, that is not a problem. We have seen what he can do last season and earlier this season. Keep getting the chances and his confidence will come back."

Despite having a bit of a struggle lately, Salah still has still manage to contribute 29 goals and assists this season, which is only bettered by a handful of players.

And Rushie thinks that, while the goals aren't coming, he's still putting in the performances to warrant the goals.

He continued: "Mo scored 40 goals last year but Liverpool didn’t win anything. He’s not scored as many goals this time but hopefully they will be winning something and that’s what happened when I wasn’t scoring.

"We had Kenny (Dalglish) and the midfielders scoring and we were winning things, so it balanced itself out.

"Mo's had a quiet period but he is playing well. He is not scoring what he would like but he is playing well and his time will come.

"The big thing is that Sadio Mane is on fire at the moment. Mo has been getting one or two chances but they have just not been going in.

"If one goes in off his backside, you will see him back among the goals. I am not disappointed because although he has not scored, his all-round play has been very, very good."
