Mohamed Salah is starting to replicate the form that saw him score 44 times in all competitions last season.

The Egyptian winger has had a slow start to the campaign but has been back to his best in recent weeks.

After scoring twice in the Champions League against Red Star on Wednesday night, Salah was influential once again as Liverpool overcame Cardiff on Saturday afternoon.

Salah opened the scoring after 10 minutes before providing two assists in the second half as Liverpool won 4-1.

That takes Salah's goal tally for the Premier League season to five, while he's also added four assists.

That's not bad for someone who has been labelled a 'one season wonder' by many in recent months.

In contrast, one player who has been described as having the season of his life is Eden Hazard.

Hazard has been sensational this season for Chelsea, tallying seven goals and three assists in England's top tier.

After the win yesterday a Liverpool fan had to tweet about Hazard and Salah and you've got to say he raised a good point.

Twitter user @AnfieldAn wrote: "Salah now has 9 goal involvements this season, just 1 behind Hazard. But supposedly Salah is the one season wonder who's having a shit season, while Hazard is having his best season ever? Levels."

That's a tweet that is certainly worth thinking about.

Salah has played a game more than Hazard, but stats don't lie.

Hazard has been terrific for Chelsea this season and he's getting all the plaudits he deserves.

But why is Salah being criticised when the stats he's racked up are very similar to that of Hazard's?

Salah may have endured a slow start to the season based on last season's form, but he is still having a terrific season by anyone else's standards.

It's about time that the Egyptian winger got more credit for his early season form.

Who do you think has been better this season, Hazard or Salah? Have your say by leaving a comment below.
