London’s Chelsea striker Chris Sutton believes that the Egyptian star Mohamed Salah, the Liverpool player, “lives in the shadow” of the English young man Bukayo Saka, whose team Arsenal leads the Premier League standings this season, after the impressive levels he presents with the rest of the London team.
England international Saka is having his best moment with the north London club, scoring 12 Premier League goals and providing 10 assists as Arsenal’s search for their first league championship since 2004.
Sutton wrote in his press column on Monday, published on the “Daily Mail” website: Saka wins the battle as the best right winger without competition from Salah, who I see living in the shadow of the English youth this season. Mohamed is no longer a source of strength for Liverpool.
And I follow: Riyad Mahrez is incredibly talented and offers good levels with Manchester City, but I will choose Saka better than him. As for whoever puts the name of the Brazilian Anthony, the Manchester United player among the best, I will not take his opinion seriously.
Mohamed Salah scored 11 goals with Liverpool this season, compared to 7 assists, which is a much lower number than the numbers he achieved in the past years, especially after his move to Liverpool.
Arsenal leads the English Premier League standings with 69 points, 8 points ahead of Manchester City (with one less game for the last), while Liverpool is suffering this season, as it ranks sixth with 42 points, and 7 points behind the qualifying seats for the Champions League.
