Mohamed Salah cited as Liverpool backed for revamp - 'something's not right', says pundit
Frank McAvennie has insisted something is “not clicking” at Liverpool.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former West Ham striker said the Reds are in need of a “revamp” and have problems in all positions, including with Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk.
Salah finished the Champions League group stages as joint top scorer alongside Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe, with Man City’s Erling Haaland closest to the pair on five goals.
Salah scored seven goals in six games in the European competition but has only netted four goals in 12 games in the Premier League.
The 30-year-old was on the scoresheet for the Reds’ 2-0 win over Napoli on Tuesday (1 November).
“He scored most of his goals against Rangers,” he told Football Insider.

“He came on as a sub and scored three. Liverpool is just not clicking, there is something not right. From Van Dijk to Salah. I think they have got to revamp and I think they should have done it this year.
“They have got to undertake a huge revamp of the midfield because that is the engine room. You need pace in there, people that can stop things and tackle.“
Liverpool finished second in the Champions League group missing out on the top spot on goal difference.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are ninth in the Premier League with 16 points from 12 games ahead of the match against Tottenham on Sunday (6 November).
