Mohamed Salah was able to speak from experience when giving advice to the young Scouser who has come into some scrutiny as of late.

"I tell him focus on your own game, don't listen to anyone else. People will always talk."

Mohamed Salah, who at times has not been at his best, continues to show why he is so important for Liverpool. His comments reflected something Liverpool have not done in some time and that is claw back wins any way they can. 

This mirrored many of their wins last season which led them to the league title and fans can only hope it will light a fire in the team that drives them to hold that top four spot by this seasons end.
