      His pass to put Salah through to set up the winning corner is getting overlooked. Good ball.

      My two favs are the goal he scored weaving in and out of Gooners at Anfield in the 18/19 season. That samba footwork. The other was the club world cup goal. Lost my sh*t on that one

      I think if he is to drop deep into midfield to get the ball, he needs to stop with the fancy flicks, more often than not he lost the ball doing a flick. All good when we do this closer to their half, but one mistake at half line could cause an easy counter attack.

      I agree, that was  absolutely crucial, it was good control and a perfectly weighted pass. It's great to see him playing himself back into form, he is still a bit rusty but you can see some of the old magic returning. I'd like to see Salah get himself in more central areas every time he drops into those pockets of space.

      He also played an inch-perfect through ball for Diaz in the first half, not long before they scored. It deserved better.
