Memories abound when you think about Mohamed Salah’s performance against Manchester City since he joined Liverpool in the summer of 2017.
Al-Masry scored from close range from 40 meters as the Reds beat Manchester City in 2017/18, scored the goal that dropped the team’s shoulders against the same opponent in the Champions League quarter-finals, and scored a wild solo goal as Klopp’s men chased a quadruple in 2021/ 22.
On Saturday, he will have the opportunity to make more of those memories when Liverpool visit Manchester City.
It will beautify the statistics
-I like to play in big matches, where you show your character and character. It’s just a game and I’m just trying to play and score goals and make sure the team wins the match, Al-Masry says in an interview with LFC TV Before the match.
Before the match against Manchester City, Al-Masry had scored 11 goals in 18 matches against his neighbors in the table. He only needs two goals before he scores 200 goals for Liverpool – something only four players have scored before him – and is just one goal away from 150 Premier League goals. Even though he is aware of the records he has at his fingertips, he manages to stay focused in the matches.
– I hope for more records. I know the numbers, but I try not to focus on them in matches. Then I just try to do what I do in training and do what I imagined before the game.
Al-Masry states that the competition against Pep Guardiola’s men in recent seasons has ensured Liverpool’s improvement.
-It makes us a better team, it makes us better players and I’m sure it makes a better manager as well. When you know that another team is always winning games and waiting for you to lose, you work harder than usual. It makes us better.
He adapts to his fellow players
As he got older, Salah became more interested in helping those around him, and he is now also part of the team’s management team.
– Now I am more experienced and better able to handle many aspects of the game – the pressure and expectations. When you’re young, you only focus on yourself, but when you get older, you feel like you have to improve your teammates as well.
Liverpool’s top scorer has developed a particularly good relationship with Darwin Nunez. The Phantoms of Speed completed five assists for each other, more than any other duo in the league, and they also created more chances for each other than any other duo.
– I always try to find him on the field, and he tries to find me too. We’re both fast players, which makes it easy to understand each other’s thinking on the field.
Salah is keen to analyze the performance of his teammates in order to adapt.
-If you understand how other players act, it will be easier for you too. I always try to understand other players, so I know what position I should be in with different players.
– Kostas (Tsimikas) and Robbo (Andy Robertson) are very different, and the same goes for Darwin (Nunez) and Cody (Jacopo). I have to adapt based on who is playing.
We hope for more memorable moments when Liverpool visit the Etihad Stadium on Saturday. The match starts at 1:30 pm and will be broadcast on V Sport 1
