A look at Mohamed Salah’s 100th Premier League goals milestone

It was a mixed feeling at the West Yorkshire Arena for the Merseyside Reds as Liverpool goal poacher Mohamed Salah reached a landmark achievement in the red shirt, The Egyptian forward netted his 100th Premier League goal at Elland Road on Sunday when they defeated Leeds United with three un-replied goals in their Premier League Matchday 4 encounter.

Salah demanding £500,000 a week wages from Liverpool

Liverpool goal poacher Mohamed Salah is requesting a whopping £500,000-a-week contract to extend his stay at Merseyside. Egypt's most valuable star has been at Liverpool for a solid four years with mouth-watering numbers to show for it, but his current deal with Liverpool is set to end in 2023. Now, the terrific 29-year-old is twisting the arms of his employer by demanding an eye-watering wage from the Anfield hierarchy.

Liverpool FC 2021-22 – What to expect from the Reds

For many Liverpool fans, the 2020/2021 season is one to never remember. They might have finished in the top 4 but it takes little away from the fact that they performed way below expectations. A title defense that is one of the worst in the premier league era, becoming the first defending champion to lose 8 home games by March, the Anfield unbeaten record of 4 years broken, and many more, Liverpool were truly a shadow of themselves. Of course, they can blame it on the myriad of injuries sustained during the season and they would be partly correct but one would expect a team as successful as Liverpool to have enough depth for cover in such situations. There is a lot of fixing to be done if Liverpool are going to compete with the elite in Europe and here’s a brief look at what to ex...
