EPL: Only Messi can score Salah's goal against Tottenham - Carragher

06 February 2018

Because of Salah's goal, Carragher compared the Egyptian's technique to Lionel Messi, he told Sky Sports after the game "The only man who can score that goal is Lionel Messi, If you think of Messi and the types of goals he scores, that's what he does in tight areas, dinking the keeper".

"I've run out of things to say", he added.

"We're seeing something extraordinary 40 miles up the East Lancs Road, otherwise he'd win it".

Mohamed Salah continues to send records tumbling at Liverpool and has now been backed by Mido to reach 100 Premier League goals.

Salah's first strike of the match was the player's 20 Premier League goal for Liverpool, a landmark he has reached quicker than any other Reds star before him.

"They're a good side and move the ball quickly so it's impossible [to press] for 95 minutes, there are times when you have to get back into shape".

The Egyptian worldwide has been lauded all season, but comparison to five time Ballon d'Or victor Messi by a Liverpool legend is the pinnacle of praise.

Salah now has 21 goals in 25 Premier League games, with four in as many games, which sees him second to only Kane who has 22.

Carragher doesn't expect the 25-year-old to be leaving the club in the summer and has backed the player to be at the club for the next few years.

Salah is expected to get many more in the years to come, as that bar gets raised considerably, with it possible that he could become another centurion if he can maintain his standards and Liverpool fend off admiring glances from afar.

Liverpool are third in the Premier League table, 18 points behind leaders Manchester City.
