'Salah has been signing of the season'

The Egypt international scored both goals as Liverpool beat Leicester City at the weekend, and he has been hailed by Don Hutchinson

Mohamed Salah has been the signing of the season, according to former Liverpool midfielder Don Hutchinson.

The Egypt international has been in fine form this term, scoring 17 goals, including two in Liverpool's 2-1 win over Leicester City at the weekend, and providing six assists in 21 Premier League appearances.

The Reds winger has seamlessly slotted into manager Jurgen Klopp's plans, and Hutchinson believes that he has instantly replicated his excellent form at Roma before his £34 million move.

"Mo Salah has probably been the signing of the summer, people might argue Alvaro Morata, who has been in good form," Hutchinson told Goals on Sunday.

"I watched a lot of him at Roma last year and apart from Radja Nainggolan, he was their best player. But to hit the ground running and have 23 (goals) in all competitions, is absolutely amazing.

"He could have actually had four at the weekend. He misses chances, that is how good he is, which sounds like a bit of a contradiction! But he gets in the positions to score goals and miss them and he got two great goals at the weekend."

Liverpool are 18 points behind current Premier League leaders Manchester City, and face Burnley on New Year's Day.
