Former Arsenal defender, Martin Keown, has claimed that Mohamed Salah was “not the real deal” after Liverpool were held to a 1-1 draw by Arsenal.
Jurgen Klopp’s side took the lead with 30 minutes remaining, as James Milner took advantage of a Bernd Leno mistake to score his 50th Premier League goal.
However, Alexandre Lacazette fired Arsenal’s level with a brilliant finish after latching on to a through ball from second-half substitute, Alex Iwobi.
Salah had scored four goals in his last three appearances ahead of the trip to Arsenal, but was unable to make a significant impact for Klopp’s side.
Keown was critical of the Egyptian’s performance at the Emirates.
“Mohamed Salah doesn’t look the real deal to me.
“He was very quiet today. Something is wrong. He doesn’t seem to want to get hurt. He’s not the same player. Maybe it’s still the injury,” he said on BT Sport.
