Cancelo is a top player but Salah destroyed him. Salah created loads for us and loads in the first half and that doesnt really scream a full back keeping the attacker quiet.

Its a real strength of ours against them. Cancelo gets twisted inside out when against Salah and that can be seen with how effective Salah has been against them these past few fixtures.

Yeah Salah trashed Cancelo, if he had a quiet patch it was because they had three players surrounding him as soon as the ball got near him.

All I'm saying is that Cancelo performed better against Salah than in the three games we played last season (I don't recall if they both played all three). And yes, he emerged with the ball annoyingly a number of times when Salah tried one-on-one. If you argued that Salah destroyed him last season, I'd have no argument.

That's a biased view though. Cancelo got the better of Salah much more than usual and kept him quiet for long periods of the game. But Salah just kept pushing and pushing.

He got wrecked … he either loses the 1 on 1 with him or ends up giving him so much space he can pick his pass as he did for the first and third goals
In both league games last season we were somewhat out played but Salahs mismatch allowed us to compete and always be dangerous - Cancelo can’t deal with him

He showed exactly why it would be unnerving to lose him, he is one of the best in the world and the best attacker in this league.

He has said every season he looks to add a new tactic to confuse defenders. He attempted quite a few right foot crosses against City, wonder if that's his new 'move'.

Sorry sorry... I'm in preseason shape - way off it ....
He produced 0.83 xg and 0.25xa in one 90?!!! ...while completing 94% of his passes - basically destroyed them while never risking possession.

Salah was sensational - rarely gave the ball away, while he was a constant threat, and involved in all 3 goals.  He will be a monster again this season.

Him and Elliot have a great link up. He needs an RCM close to him who can play it short, give and go etc.

I think starting Elliot and Nunez gets best out of him going forward.

+ thisisanfield.com: "Salah sets new Premier League record – and equals Shearer, Rooney & Lampard"

The No. 11 weathered a quiet start to tee up the first equaliser for Darwin Nunez and then convert his own, after two efforts from Aleksandar Mitrovic.

In doing so, Salah scored in his six consecutive opening-day fixture in the Premier League, following previous efforts against Watford (2017), West Ham (2018), Norwich (2019), Leeds (2020) and Norwich again (2021).

No other player in the history of the current English top flight has scored in five opening games in a row, let alone six.

Over those six openers, Salah has found the back of the net an impressive eight times – including a hat-trick in the 4-3 victory over Leeds in 2020.

Alan Shearer, Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard are the only other players to score eight opening-day goals, and Salah has done so in less than half the amount of appearances than any of those.

An eighth such strike has seen Salah move clear of Jamie Vardy, though the Leicester striker could draw level again or even overtake if he nets against Brentford on Sunday.

It is another ridiculous feat from the Egyptian, which comes on the back of the off-season boost of a new three-year contract at Anfield.

Yep it's a continuous salbutamol patch, it supplies the equivalent of 2 blasts of an inhaler every 10 minutes. Salah must have particularly bad asthma.

Wonder if we'll see him more central for the next three games give Nunez is out, along with Jota and Firmino is possibly a doubt fitness wise?

Three game two goals and one assist.
One thing does need to be said: in the post-Benitez era, there was media-led clamour (but also some politicking going on at the club) to make the club more English; the idea being that the club had lost the very essence of what it means to be ‘Liverpool’. Guillem Ballague 18/11/10
