Liverpool fans are split on Mohamed Salah after Hoffenheim victory

Although it is early days, Mohamed Salah has had a mixed couple of games to start off his Liverpool career.

The Egyptian forward has looked plenty dangerous during his outings against Watford and Hoffenheim, but the end product has been somewhat lacking.

Salah showed in pre-season that he can indeed find the back of the net and has the desirable knack of getting into the right positions, but that hasn't quite translated to the competitive fixtures just yet.

The Reds defeated German side Hoffenheim 2-1 away from home in a Champions League qualifier on Tuesday evening after a sublime Trent Alexander-Arnold free-kick and an own-goal from former West Ham man Harvard Nordtveit.

While the two away goals are obviously precious to Jurgen Klopp and his troops, they could have been in a more comfortable position if Salah had made the most of his openings.

Although it is clearly too early to say Salah will be a flop, given his previous spell in England with Chelsea it seems as though some fans are beginning to wonder.

Plenty of Liverpool fans took to Twitter to talk about the 25-year-old
and it seems they are split on the forward already.

Check out the best tweets below:

Earlier this summer, Klopp was not someone who was buying into the theory that Salah could flop in England because of his stint with Chelsea.

“A lot of players have shown it is quite easy to struggle at Chelsea. (Kevin) De Bruyne is one,” said Klopp.

“The only thing that we really ignored was what he did at Chelsea. When he was at Basel we (Dortmund) played them and we didn’t know him. It was ‘what the f**k?’. It was unbelievable. The moment I said ‘let’s go for him’ he was already at Chelsea.

“Then he struggled at Chelsea because it was too early. Then he went to Fiorentina and then Roma. “The question is ‘what did you not see in him?’ because he played all inclusive football. He was quick, he played a lot of games, he created goals and chances and he scored by himself.”
