Salah "getting there" with Messi comparisons- Heskey

  • Joe Gomez cannot find the words to describe the season of his team-mate Mohamed Salah

"To get to 40 goals would be an astonishing achievement, simply because of where he plays".

Mohamed Salah's goal scoring exploits this season are having a similarly positive impact at Liverpool to that of Luis Suarez when the Uruguayan was at Anfield, according to club captain Jordan Henderson. "I don't think Mo or anybody wants to be compared with Messi".

But the reaction has been pretty negative, with Liverpool fans insisting Salah should keep No.11 and make it legendary.

The Egyptian was compared to Lionel Messi as he struck four in Liverpool's 5-0 thrashing of Watford on Saturday.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes comparisons between Mohamed Salah and Barcelona's Lionel Messi are premature, but that the Egyptian is on his way to becoming the best player in the world.

The Premier League season is careering towards its inevitable conclusion, but there is still so much time for heaps of drama.

If the 25-year-olds does achieve this landmark, he will join former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, who shared the award with Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo in 2013-14. "But not only Salah, the whole Liverpool team is one of the best teams in Europe right now". "His consistency is good for us".

Salah struck four against Watford on Saturday to help Liverpool ease to a comfortable Premier League victory.

The 26-year-old has formed a devastating frontline alongside Firmino and Sadio Mane.

The difference between the two players is Messi has been able to produce consistently for years while Salah will need to carry to maintain his level for the next five or six campaigns.

More importantly, they are now seven points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea in the tussle for the top four and Champions League qualification.

"The fact he has so many assists (nine in the Premier League) shows he is bringing more than just his goals". Kevin De Bruyne, along with a number of his Manchester City team-mates, has been outstanding while Kane has also delivered with remarkable consistency.
