Mo Salah Tried To Pass To Joel Matip After Replacing Him Against Shrewsbury
Mo Salah's first appearance at Shrewsbury Town's New Meadow saw him kick the ball out of play for a throw-in following a wayward shot for Chelsea in the League Cup back in 2014.
Tonight, his first touch in a Liverpool shirt at the same ground saw him come up with a similar gaffe when he appeared to pass to Joel Matip, the man who he had just replaced in the 2-2 draw.
Matip was on the side of the pitch walking towards the dugout while play resumed but it seems as though Salah got a little confused when the ball dropped to him.
Salah's error was reminiscent of the time Renato Sanches passed to a Carabao pitchside advertising board by accident and prompted Swansea City manager Paul Clement to put his head in his hands.

But the absolute best one we've ever seen was in November 2016, when Peterborough United's Michael Bostwick passed to a steward.
Posh sported a bright fluorescent green away kit in their win over Northampton and that brought about a bit of difficulty for the midfielder.
The strip has the identical colours to the typical attire a pitchside steward wears and so when a figure wearing bright Hi-Vis colours was moving near the pitch, Bostwick mistakenly thought one of the stewards was a teammate and passed the ball to him.
He must have wondered why his 'teammate' didn't collect the ball. The ball rolled out of play as Bostwick gave the opposition a throw-in.
