Former Tottenham striker and FA Cup winner Garth Crooks hailed the performance of Mohamed Salah in Chelsea's win over Stoke City.

Salah struck in the 3-0 win.

Crooks told BBC Sport: "Mohamed Salah was inspiring as Chelsea beat Stoke on Saturday - and Jose Mourinho was happy to sing the Egypt international's praises afterwards.

"Salah scored the opener, before winning the penalty that led to Chelsea's second goal as they won 3-0. Mourinho highlighted the 21-year-old's role in the victory, and was quick to mark him out for a bright future at Stamford Bridge.

"With so much uncertainty as to which players will stay at Chelsea beyond the summer - and with Mourinho likely to reshape his squad significantly - that was high praise indeed."
