The Liverpool winger appears to still require support for his injured shoulder, months after the incident in the Champions League final with Sergio Ramos.

Liverpool defeated Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday evening, making it six wins from six games at the start of the season.

That record is made even more impressive by Jurgen Klopp's side not quite looking at their best so far, with Mohamed Salah the most notable of any.

The Egyptian has scored twice and assisted another in those six games. It is a decent record but Liverpool would have hoped for more, considering their general domination in games and Salah's chances.

 

He simply has not looked as sharp as he did last year and the game against PSG may have brought an answer as to why.

Salah removed his undershirt as he prepared to take a corner in the first half and there was clearly some serious strapping on the shoulder he injured in a clash with Sergio Ramos during last year's Champions League final.

Still requiring bandages after four months would suggest that it was indeed a serious problem for Salah, which begs the question: did Egypt rush him back for the World Cup?

Salah was featuring in World Cup games just a couple of weeks after suffering the injury; surely not enough time considering how serious it was.

He has played regularly since, featuring in the World Cup and then starting every one of Liverpool's games this season.

If Salah is still being bothered by his shoulder, and it requires more healing, Liverpool fans have an answer to why their star man is not shining quite as brightly so far this season.
