For 18 months, Mohamed Salah was Liverpool’s undisputed king. He scored goals, made goals, and clinched countless points for Jürgen Klopp’s side.
But 2019 has been tricky for the Egyptian. His goalscoring prowess has deserted him – Salah has struck just once in his last ten games in all competitions – and he has cut a frustrated figure in several matches.
Over on the other flank, though, things are far rosier. Sadio Mané has blossomed into Liverpool’s match-winner in recent weeks. He was integral in their Champions League victory over Bayern Munich and has kept the Reds in contention for the Premier League title.
So, for this week’s episode of Three Minute Myths, it seemed the perfect time to question whether the Senegalese star has now become more important to Liverpool than Salah?
That’s what we asked Reds fans prior to their win over Fulham at the weekend; there was an overwhelming majority when it came to the responses. But what do the numbers say? We let our data scientists delve deep to give us an answer.
