'Salah Hasn't Been The Same Since Shoulder Injury'

With Mohamed Salah having had a slow start to the season, an Arsenal legend feels the African superstar has not been the same since injuring his shoulder in the UEFA Champions League final in May.

The 10 Highest-Paid Players In The Champions League

Salah was forced off in the first half of the decider against Real Madrid after a collision with defender Sergio Ramos.

The Egyptian bagged 32 goals in the Premier League last season, but has only found the back of the net on two occasions so far in this campaign, and Gunners legend Martin Keown thinks the shoulder injury has made him a more cautious player, much to his detriment.

"Has Salah been the same since his shoulder was dislocated by Sergio Ramos?" Keown told the Daily Mail.
 
"Ever since, he has seemed to be playing within himself. He lost possession 21 times against Paris Saint-Germain and it was his mistake that led to their equaliser.
 
"He looks particularly reluctant to use his physicality to protect the ball. Daniel Sturridge was far more effective in that regard, losing possession just seven times.
 
"Is Salah concerned about picking up another injury?"
 
How many goals do you think Salah will score this season? Let us know in the comments section below.
