Jamie Carragher: Liverpool can't afford to lose Mohamed Salah

With two goals against Tottenham, Mohamed Salah took his tally for the season to 28. Game over, surely. And the stakes were high. Frankly, that's utter nonsense.

The player of the year often goes to a player from the Premier League's winning side, but not always.

This, after failing to establish himself at Chelsea and moving to Rome, where he scored 29 times in 65 outings before coming to Merseyside, where he has already become a cult figure.

Salah's manager Jurgen Klopp was also full of praise for the Egyptian.

"Disappointed not to get all 3 points but pleased to have scored!"

"Any change that he makes is either 'keep it the same or make it negative', he added".

Moreover, he struck in both games against Arsenal as well as finding the net against former club Chelsea in the 1-1 draw back in November. Despite once again managing to concede a couple of goals, the defence was for the most part very good.

"We wanted to press these situations, which is what we did especially in the first half in a fantastic way".

"You realise it the day after the game when you look at the figures and see 'wow, what a number of high sprints and high distance runs'".

Klopp's side have been unfortunate with referee decisions.

Liverpool have recently shown how vulnerable they are to losing their star players when the Reds lost Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.

Do you think Salah has been the EPL signing of the season?

Perhaps playing on the left isn't helping.

"The only man who can score that [second] goal is Lionel Messi", he said. "The unfortunate thing for him is that [Manchester] City are having such a good season with Kevin De Bruyne, otherwise he'd absolutely be walking Player of the Year", enthused Reds legend Jamie Carragher.

Mohamed Salah's valuation has gone past the £100m ($140m) mark following his excellent performances for Liverpool this season, former Reds defender Phil Babb says.
