Mohamed Salah, Luis Suarez Or Fernando Torres. Who Wins?

Mohamed Salah, Luis Suarez and Fernando Torres have all individually been unplayable during their time at Liverpool. 

But who has been the best? 

LFCTR writers have put their opinions forward and have decided on a collective winner

Damon

We have been so lucky as fans to have seen these three play for Liverpool

I adored Torres and was in awe every time you step onto the pitch. Made the game look easy. He tore defences apart on a constant basis including a certain world-class duo. 

What Luis Suarez did at Liverpool was another level though. He put in one of the most amazing individual seasons anyone has ever seen in the Premier League.

Those two are certainly in the top 5 Liverpool players to have played in the Premier League but my choice for this debate goes to the 'Egyptian King.'

To be that good for one or two seasons is something but to do it for five at that level  in both the league and Champions League needs commending. 

He is just getting better and better for me. More records will be broken and he will go down in Liverpool history. 

Damon's choice: Mohamed Salah

I love all three players. I started watching Liverpool when El Nino was causing mayhem with Steven Gerrard.

Then when I was going home and away, travelling around England, Luis Suarez was the messiah for Liverpool. 

Now that I'm older and have much more knowledge about football, I have been lucky enough to witness Mo Salah performing miracles with Liverpool.

Personally, I think Luis Suarez was just something else compared to the other two.

He could do things that no one was doing at that time. 

The Uruguayan nearly dragged a very average Liverpool team to a Premier League title too.

Mo Salah will no doubt go down as the one who won everything and contributed the most at Liverpool but Suarez will always have a place in my heart.

For that reason, I'm going with El Pistolero.

This is a tough choice between three very different but equally brilliant players.

Torres was the perfect number nine in Rafa Benitez's 4-2-3-1 formation that was so successful and he struck up a terrific partnership with Steven Gerrard.

He was fast, strong and powerful, brilliant in the air and could score both from short and long range.

The one downside was the decline in his performances as he tried to force a move to Chelsea.

Suarez is arguably the most destructive of the three players on his day with his ability to score all types of goals. He led from the front of the pitch and caused havoc amongst opposition defences.

It will be very difficult to find a striker that has scored hattricks of such quality when comparing to the ones Suarez scored against Norwich home and away.

At the start of the season I would have leaned towards the Uruguayan based on his outstanding contribution in driving Liverpool so close to an unlikely Premier League triumph.

The last few weeks however have convinced me that Salah deserves to get the nod as he seems to have taken his game to another level.

With a phenomenal goal scoring record prior to this season, an increased determination and work rate is driving him on to new levels which will see him write more records in the history books.

The Egyptian therefore is my pick as

LFCTR Verdict

With two votes to one. The winner of this debate for LFCTR goes to Mohamed Salah. Although Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez especially pushes Mohamed Salah close. It's the Egyptian that nicks it. 

Do you agree? If not, who is your choice?
