Liverpool's Mohamed Salah follows Cristiano Ronaldo with unflattering statue

Steve Nicol believes Arsenal were just the better side in an entertaining 1-1 draw with Liverpool at The Emirates.
English Premier League: Alexandre Lacazette (82') Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool
English Premier League: James Milner (61') Arsenal 0-1 Liverpool

It has become something of a rite of passage for professional footballers, to have a strange, questionable and/or slightly insulting statue erected in your honour.

Some big names have been given with some even bigger eyesores in the past, and now Mohamed Salah can count himself as a member of the club.

The Liverpool forward has been immortalised by Egyptian sculptor Mai Abdel Allah, who unveiled her work at the World Youth Forum in Sharm El Sheikh on Sunday.

While the skill involved cannot be...

Virgil van Dijk shines, Fabinho flops as Liverpool settle for draw with Arsenal

Alexandre Lacazette denied Liverpool the win at The Emirates but Jurgen Klopp's side still remain unbeaten in the Premier League.
Steve Nicol believes Arsenal were just the better side in an entertaining 1-1 draw with Liverpool at The Emirates.

Liverpool and Arsenal affairs always seem to be pulsating -- and Saturday's 1-1 draw was no different. Jurgen Klopp's side return to the top of the Premier League, but for how long?

James Milner gave Liverpool the lead just after the hour mark before Alexandre Lacazette equalised eight minutes from time. Liverpool will feel slightly hard done by after seeing Sadio Mane have a goal incorrectly ruled out for offside in the 18th minute.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp reveals Mohamed Salah battling wrist injury

LIVERPOOL, England -- Jurgen Klopp has revealed Mohamed Salah has been battling a wrist injury, but is expected to be fit for Liverpool's trip to Arsenal on Saturday.

Salah was spotted in training this week wearing a splint on his right wrist and has had strapping on his forearm during Liverpool's last three matches.

Klopp also confirmed Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita remain sidelined with hamstring injuries, meaning they will miss the Arsenal game. They are also doubts for next week's trip to Red...

ESPN FC's Dan Thomas and Shaka Hislop break down Saturday's Premier League results.

Goal of the weekend

From a technical point of view, you could argue that Roberto Pereyra's goal against Huddersfield wasn't that impressive, because he just seemed to run in a straight line without beating many players, the defenders just melting away in front of him.

But there is something undeniably thrilling about watching someone slice through a defence like that, taking the most direct and impassable route and managing to pass it. Ignore the killjoys: what a goal.

Mohamed Salah back to his best as Liverpool cruise past troubled Cardiff

Mohamed Salah scored his 51st goal to open the scoring before Sadio Mane's brace and Xherdan Shaqiri's effort compiled further misery on Cardiff City's start to life in the Premier League.
English Premier League: Sadio Mane (87') Liverpool 4-1 Cardiff
English Premier League: Xherdan Shaqiri (84') Liverpool 3-1 Cardiff
English Premier League: Callum Paterson (77') Liverpool 2-1 Cardiff
English Premier League: Sadio Mane (66') Liverpool 2-0 Cardiff
English Premier League: Mohamed Salah (10') Liverpool 1-0 Cardiff

Liverpool were in control for nearly all of Saturday's 4-1 win over relegation-threatened Cardiff, with Sadio Mane scoring twice and joined on the scoresheet by Mohamed Salah and second-half substitute Xherdan Shaqiri.

The Reds went to the top of the table and relax while Manchester City visit Tottenham on Monday. Can they sustain this for the season? The signs certainly look that way.

Liverpool keep on getting better and better. There were numerous occasions where Cardiff simply couldn't...

Mohamed Salah couldn't resist the the gold 'mystery box' in exchange for his shirt.

For a player supposedly mired in a goal drought, Mohamed Salah added to his perfectly respectable season tally again on Wednesday night by finding the net in Liverpool's 4-0 drubbing of Red Star Belgrade.

Salah scored a goal either side of half-time at Anfield, his fifth and sixth goals of the campaign -- thus becoming the fastest player in Reds history to reach the 50-goal mark by bringing up his half-century for the club in just 65 games.
