Mohamed Salah told he's 'frightened to death' of Erling Haaland's goal-scoring record

Mohamed Salah told he's 'frightened to death' of Erling Haaland's goal-scoring record

Erling Haaland has 15 goals in the Premier League to Mohamed Salah's two this season.

Mohamed Salah has been told he's 'probably frightened to death' about Erling Haaland's remarkable goal-scoring form at Manchester City.

Haaland has enjoyed a blistering start to life at Man City since his summer move, scoring goals at an alarming rate.

He's already bagged 15 goals in the Premier League, including not one but THREE hat-tricks against Crystal Palace, Nottingham Forest and Manchester United - and a further five goals in the Champions League.

Last season's Premier League Golden Boot award winner Salah, on the other hand, has just TWO league goals to his name this season as he struggles for form.

Salah was even dragged off by Jurgen Klopp during his team's crushing 3-2 defeat to Arsenal last weekend.

And Mark Lawrenson reckons Salah's 'probably frightened to death' of Haaland's scintillating form.

On talkSPORT, he said: "Take the likes of Salah, he’s just another one off the pace and at the moment everything he tries, nothing comes to fruition."

Lawrenson insists Salah hasn't become a bad player overnight as he referenced Haaland's goals.

"He’s not suddenly become a bad player overnight," he added. "He’s probably frightened to death about the fact that Haaland’s already got so many goals, so he’s not going to win the Golden Boot."

Liverpool's Egyptian superstar is enduring the most difficult period of his Liverpool career, having been extremely prolific since signing for the Anfield club.

Salah, who has won three Premier League Golden Boot awards since moving to Liverpool in 2017, has struggled in front of goal as Liverpool's woes continue in the league.

Haaland, in stark contrast, has reached 20 goals in all competitions for the season following his strike in his side's win over Southampton last weekend.

The Norwegian phenom will look to continue his impressive goal-scoring streak when the Blues face Salah's Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.
