Salah v Brighton

Salah hits back at his critics after Spurs win

Mohamed Salah has hit back at his critics after helping Liverpool to a crucial 2-1 win over Tottenham on Sunday.

Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League with a late win over Spurs at Anfield, Toby Alderweireld scoring a 90th-minute own goal after Hugo Lloris parried Salah’s header against him.

Salah has come under criticism in recent weeks having scored just once in his past nine league appearances, but the Egyptian hit back suggesting his contribution is viewed differently to those of other players.

“I think the fans gave it to me! A goal is a goal,’’ Salah told Sky Sports.

“The important thing was to get three points. I haven’t scored for couple of games but there are some players who have the same number of goals as me but are having the season of their lives. I’m supposed to be having a bad season!

“You do not always have to play good but the important thing is to get the points. The big teams always find a way to get the points and that’s what we did today.

“Each game now is tough. You just have to keep yourself in the race. Our next game is against Southampton and they are fighting for their lives.

“You have to take each game as a challenge. Tottenham played good and they came very close to getting a point. Now we take it game by game.”
