Michael Owen has stated that he can watch Mo Salah ‘all night’, after he struck a hat-trick during Liverpool’s 5-0 thrashing of Manchester United on Sunday, as he told Premier League Productions (24/10/21 at 7:00 pm)

The former striker, who has been on both sides of this bitter rivalry, shared that Salah is just a ‘phenomenal’ player, who is playing with ‘so much self-belief’.

There’s no doubting that Salah is the best player in the Premier League right now, and even if someone else hits some serious form, they won’t probably touch him, that’s how lethal he has been.

It seems as though every time Salah takes to the pitch, he is going to find the back of the net, but it’s not going to be something ordinary, there is going to be some serious red spice in what he delivers.

That was proven at Old Trafford when Manchester United just couldn’t handle Liverpool’s red arrows, who toyed with their so-called title rivals and ended their hopes of even challenging this season.

One man that played a huge part in that was Salah and Owen was seemingly running out of superlatives to say about the Egyptian.

“What more can we say?” said Owen. “He’s a phenomenal player. He can score lots of different types of goals. He does it in the big games.

“You want to be standing by players in that tunnel, just knowing and thinking ‘yeh, he’s in our team. He doesn’t bottle it, in fact, he rises to the occasion in these big games’.

“He’s on a crest of a wave. He’s confident. He’s got so much self-belief. The little flicks, in front of 70 odd thousand people. It takes something. It takes bravery and courage – and he’s got it in abundance.

“He’s just a player and you can watch him all night.”

Sign that contract – those three words will be shouted from the rooftops by Liverpool supporters, who will be keen for Salah to possibly finish his career in their colours.

He has stated that he wants to do that, and in truth, if he does sign a new deal, then it will probably be his last big deal and signal that he will finish his career at Anfield.

Salah still has years and years left in his tank and it could be argued that he would already get into Liverpool’s all-time XI.

For him to be in that situation, when he’s not even past his peak, just goes to show how special he has been for the football club.
