Mohamed Salah is going to the African Cup of Nations.
“Liverpool may be without Mohamed Salah for eight games because of the African Cup of Nations.”
Salah is currently the best winger in the Premier League and a very fast player. He was also called Egyptian Messi because his dribbling skills were quite good. His biggest advantage is that he has all three of these beats with his connective play, pass, and goal determination, making him the best winger.
After moving to Chelsea due to his performance in Basel, he could not find a place and went on loan with Fiorentina to Rome. His performance there made him move to Liverpool in 2017.
He has displayed crazy performances since his debut season. With 44 goals and 14 assists in 52 matches, he became the best record breaker ever, sweeping the PFA Player of the Year, the FWA Player of the Year, the Premier Secretariat Player of the Year, and the Premier League’s top scorer.
His performance continued in the 2018/19 season. He also contributed to Liverpool’s victory by scoring 27 goals and 10 assists in this season, and scored the first goal in the Champions League final.
This season, he has lost his form but is showing a living finishing touch. He already has 12 goals and seven assists in 18 games, breaking Africa’s record for most assists this season. All of Salah’s assists, except for one, were made in Liverpool, with the other while he was at Chelsea.
Salah, who is currently showing the best of his offense, is scheduled to leave the team in January. Salah is scheduled to go to the Africa Cup of Nations and will leave earlier than expected to train with his Egyptian teammates before the tournament. Egypt reached the final in 2021, but lost to Sadio Mane’s Senegal in Cameroon.
Since the Cup of Nations will be played until the final on February 11, Salah could miss four Premier League matches: away to Bournemouth (January 21), away to Chelsea (January 31), away to Arsenal (February 4) and home to Burnley (February 10).
He will also miss the FA Cup, and if Liverpool advances to the top of the FA Cup, it will miss its fourth-round match at the tournament on the weekend of Jan. 27. As well as the five confirmed matches, Salah will miss both of them in the Carabao Cup semi-final against Fulham.
The earliest he can play for Liverpool again will be against Chelsea. But to do so would require Egypt to be eliminated from the group stage, which seems unlikely. And Liverpool also lost another, with Endo Wataru joining Japan for the Asian Cup around the same time ahead of January and February. Endo, Japan’s captain, will be among the squad to face Newcastle in the new year before departing for Qatar. The Asian Cup similarly begins on January 12 and ends on February 10.
