Mohamed Salah’s strike against West Ham on Monday took his total Premier League tally to 69 goals. The Liverpool star is now just one goal shy of overtaking Luis Suarez to become the club’s most-prolific overseas goalscorer.
Salah is also just one goal short of becoming the first Liverpool player since Michael Owen to net 20 times in three successive seasons in all competitions.
However, despite Salah’s continued excellence in front goal, former Reds star Jamie Carragher feels the Egyptian is not fully appreciated by the club’s fans.
“Certainly going from that first season to what he is doing now, there has been a bit of a dip,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
“But he was never going to score another 47 goals in a season.

“Speaking to Liverpool fans and looking at social media, I think Liverpool have got six world-class players. I think they have the goalkeeper, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Salah.
“I think if you asked Liverpool fans whether they would take big money for the other five, they would all say no, no matter what the money.
“There is no way they would sell Alisson or Van Dijk. But if you offered them £130m for Salah, they would think about it.
“That is why I say he is underappreciated.”

Will Mohamed Salah play against Watford?
Watford vs Liverpool kicks off at 5.30pm, with the line-ups due to be confirmed an hour before.
Salah, though, is likely to feature having started the Reds’ last 12 Premier League games.
And Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp hasn’t issued any injury concerns around the player so it would appear the Egyptian is fit to play.
However, Klopp may wish to rest 27-year-old with an FA Cup fifth-round clash against Chelsea coming up on Tuesday.
But doing so would mean Salah missing out on playing against a familiar foe.
The forward has scored eight times in his five appearances against Watford – more than he has scored against any other club.
