Mo Salah shows he is human with absolutely awful miss against Leicester

You would put your mortgage on Salah scoring this in his current form.

It had to happen eventually.

Mohamed Salah has been one of the best players in the Premier League this season.

He has scored goals for fun at the front of Jurgen Klopp’s razor sharp attacking line up.

It seemed like every time he got the ball he found the back of the net.

Not this time. 

The Egyptian, with 15 league goals to his name already, produced an awful miss to put Liverpool level with Leicester after Jamie Vardy’s opener.

Philippe Coutinho put Salah in with a sublime pass into the box.

And after flying past the defender and committing Kasper Schmeichel all he had to do was apply the finishing touch.

You would have put your mortgage on Salah scoring from there.

As the Kop held its breath, the ball flew past the far past, leaving Liverpool fans in stunned amazement.

It had to happen eventually.

Liverpool Twitter came out firing with explanations that Salah has to rack up a few misses before he scores.

Hmm, we’re not sure that theory is completely watertight.

But on current form, you should never rule him out bagging a hat trick out of nothing.

Klopp has a truly wonderful player on his hands despite the odd glaring miss.

He’ll be back.
