Gary Lineker: Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah is a ‘little bastard’

Liverpool 2 – Leicester 1

Mohamed Salah’s incredible season continued on Saturday against Leicester.

The Egyptian flyer moved up to 17 Premier League goals after he scored a match winning double for Liverpool.

And Salah’s goals were critical as Leicester took the lead at Anfield.

Jamie Vardy’s amazing record against the top six continued early doors on Saturday when a mistake in the home defence gifted the Foxes an opener.

Liverpool had plenty of chances to level in the first forty-five, but they couldn’t find the target.

Mohamed Salah was guilty of wasting two golden opportunities in that period.

Mohamed Salah’s second half double

But in the second half Mohamed Salah found his shooting boots.

An incredible backheel assist from Sadio Mane teed up Liverpool’s top scorer for the leveller.

Salah found the net in the 76th minute to turn the scoreline on it’s head after yet another backheel assist – this time from James Milner.

Gary Lineker: Mohamed Salah is a ‘little bastard’

Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker attracted plenty of attention on social media for his reaction to Salah’s brace against Leicester.

Lineker, of course, is a well-known Leicester fan.

So after Salah scored his double against Claude Puel’s men, Lineker called Salah a “little bastard” on his Twitter feed.
