Liverpool fans were disappointed Mohammed Salah was not able to do much as he might have liked on Liverpool’s 0-0 draw against Bayern Munich at Anfield last night.
Bayern Munich's oddly poor defensive record may have had Liverpool licking their lips ahead of last night's Champions League last 16 first leg at Anfield.
The Reds needed to show a touch more precision than they were able to manage and it didn't help that their front three were not at the absolute top of their game.
While Sadio Mane got into positions and Roberto Firmino worked tirelessly, Mo Salah was perpetually on the fringes of the encounter – unable to exert as much influence on the game as he and Liverpool might have hoped.
Salah is of course usually so popular among the Liverpool fans but the supporters were not impressed with his impact on such a big match.
He was so key to last season's European rampage but was not able to hit those swashbuckling heights last night as Bayern's full-backs defended very intelligently, leaving little space in behind for him to exploit.
Jurgen Klopp needs Salah back to his best for the trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Sunday and these supporters were hoping he can be as well.
Hee is what some Liverpool fans had to say:

Trent and Salah poor for me tonight. Fabinho did a great job covering at centre back. Proper captain performance from Hendo, Naby Keita also showing glimpses of what he can become. Gini started well and faded as the game went on. All to play for in 3 weeks time #lfc

Didn’t lose & didn’t concede and there’ll be far more space for us in the 2nd leg. How Salah didn’t get subbed is beyond me tho, he had a shocker. Onto the next (which should be an easy 3pts) #LFC

Wish we could have Salah of last season he’s nowhere near that level this season. #LFC
