Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler is confident that Mohamed Salah will continue scoring goals for the Reds, but is not convinced that he will be able to match the feat he achieved last season.

The Egypt international scored 44 goals across all competitions in the 2017-18 campaign on his way to claiming both the PFA Players' Player of the Year and Football Writers' Player of the Year awards.

It was a remarkable campaign for the 26-year-old in his first season at Anfield, but Salah has found it difficult to replicate that sort of form in the current campaign.

The former Chelsea winger has so far managed just three goals in 11 games this term, and although Fowler believes he will continue scoring goals for the Merseyside club, he is unconvinced Salah will find the back of the net as frequently as he did last season.

"I'm not saying he's having a bad year so far. He's still a good player, he's still an excellent player but to replicate what he did last year will be unbelievable," Fowler told Sky Sports News.

"I think he'll still score goals, I think he'll still score a lot of goals.

"What I like about Mo Salah is that his work ethic is brilliant, he doesn't shy away from anything. What I would be more worried about is if he wasn't getting chances.

"He will bang the goals in. I'm not sure he'll hit the heights he did last year but he is still a magnificent player. He will still be a danger throughout the Premier League [season]."
