Liverpool have been struggling this season especially in the Premier League and in other domestic competitions. They are out of the league title contention due to a poor run of games that saw them drop out of the top four within two months.
The worst period for Liverpool this season came between January and March 2021, during which coach Jurgen Klopp and his team suffered 5 successive defeats at Anfield stadium which is a record fan of the club would want to forget in a hurry.
Due to how poor their season in the league has been, Liverpool are now sitting on the 7th spot on the league table with 46 points in 29 games after recording 13 wins, 7 draws, and 9 defeats.
The Merseyside club has only 9 Premier League games to play before this season ends. They need to win every game and hope the clubs above them drop at least 6 points so that they can get into the top four.
Despite the negative stats Liverpool have recorded in the 2020-2021 season, one of the club’s talismans, Mohamed Salah who has managed to score 17 league goals and provided 3 assists this season says he is happy with the latest results the club has recorded.
“I’m happy about our last results, so hopefully we can just keep winning,” Mohamed Salah told Liverpool’s official website.
“It’s tough for all of us because of the situation we have been through and our position in the Premier League, but I believe it’s going to be better.
“In the Champions League, we are doing good.”
Some of the latest results which are giving Mohamed Salah hope that Liverpool would have a better season include the club’s 0-1 win over Wolves on March 15, and the 2-0 win over RB Leipzig which qualified Liverpool for the quarter-final stage of the UEFA Champions League.
Even though Liverpool are way off their form when one compares their performance this season and that of the last three seasons, Mohamed Salah has continued to be relatively consistent with his performance.
So far this season, the 28-year-old Egyptian right-winger has played 40 games in all competitions in which he scored 25 goals and provided 4 assists. These stats are not too far from Salah’s performance last season in which he scored a total number of 23 goals and provided 13 assists in 48 games in all competitions.
“I don’t want to just talk about my season because we play as a team, so I’d say it’s a tough season for all of us and we just need to carry on and try to win games,” Mohamed Salah said.
“We’re going to give our 100 percent to win the next few games and hopefully we can do that and do good also in the Champions League.”
