EPL: Garth Crooks names best striker in the world

Former Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United player, Garth Crooks has rated Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah as the best striker in the world currently.

Salah has been in great form for Liverpool, scoring eleven goals in 13 Premier Leagues games for Jurgen Klopp’s side so far this season.

The Egyptian international is currently the highest goal scorer in the Premier League, with two goals ahead of Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy.

“Some of my readers will be a little surprised that Diogo Jota is nowhere to be seen among my selections this week,” Crooks told BBC Sport.

“That’s because I thought his performance was ordinary in comparison to Sadio Mane and especially Salah.

“The Egypt international is a joy to watch at the moment. There is not a better striker in the world than Salah when he is playing for the team and not merely chasing goals. Against the Saints, he was superb.

“What amazes me about Salah is his strength. He is lightning quick and extremely strong on the ball. However, Liverpool have a problem. They lose both Mane and Salah to the African Nations Cup in January. I wonder what impact that is going to have on their title chances.”
