Crouch: Liverpool fans rate Suarez, Torres higher than Salah

Former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch is convinced Mohamed Salah is under appreciated by fans.

Salah scored his 100th goal in the Premier League for Liverpool in their 3-3 draw at Brentford on Saturday.

On the striker reaching the mark quicker than anyone previous Crouch wrote for the Daily Mail: "He was also quicker than all-time legends Roger Hunt and Jack Parkinson to a century of top-flight goals for Liverpool.

"Salah is a phenomenon, with Thierry Henry and Sergio Aguero the only foreign imports to have reached the landmark in fewer games. Yet there is still that feeling of under-appreciation and I cannot put my finger on why. Maybe it is because the eye-popping numbers he produces every season have become the norm.

"Compare him to Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez for a moment. They are almost held in higher esteem — and are deemed more special — by supporters. But he has a record that eclipses them easily."
