Another game, another frustrating finish. But, on the bright side, we also got another Mohamed Salah goal. The Egypt international netted his 15th goal of the season (10th goal in the Premier League) against Chelsea on Saturday, and doesn’t look like he’ll be stopping anytime soon. Joe Gomez, in the middle of chatting about his disappointment at the result, took some time to gush over Salah and his contributions to the team since his arrival this summer.

"It's ridiculous,” Gomez told the club’s official website about Salah’s goalscoring record. "He's come in and he's been a massive addition to us, unbelievable. The goals he has scored but also his general play, his link-up.”

"Our whole attacking force is quality, everybody knows that, so hopefully [Salah] can keep doing it for us," Gomez added.

Beyond Salah’s goal, Gomez was positive about Liverpool’s performance during the game and keen to point out that a draw against the defending champions was a decent result.

"I think we battled well and were aggressive from the start," Gomez said. "We dominated generally, created some good chances and Mo got another goal for us, then we looked like we were going to hold on.

"We were wary of their threats and did our best to try and stop them. We had our fair bit of play as well — they had their chances but so did we. They're a top side, they're champions, so we've got to take the positives. It's disappointing, but we've got to move on from it and do what we can in the next game.”

Gomez is unlikely to say what we’re all thinking after games like this one: the team is underperforming and this season has been a source of frustration more often than not. But he’s absolutely correct on one thing: Salah’s record so far has been ridiculous and it’s an incredibly joy to watch him score goal after goal.
