Mohamed Salah has enjoyed an impressive first season in Liverpool since he joined Rome in the summer from 2017 and will be available to torment his former team.

The Egyptian has scored in his last six games in a row, with his goal against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday equaling a Premier League record:

Salah also has eight goals in 10 appearances in the Champions League, for which Liverpool will seek to use its pace and the ability of the ball to hurt Rome.

Defender Kostas Manolas has said that his team has no tactics to deal specifically with Sa lah, but they trust that they can handle it "because we stopped Barcelona and Leo Messi as a team", Joe R immer in Liverpool Echo .

Salah and Rome have already revealed the respect they have for each other on Twitter:

Rome will know all about Salah and the threat he has, but stopping it is another completely different matter. In the current form, he seems to score every time he gets on the field, and it would not be a surprise to see him raise his account on Tuesday night.

Rome looks at another discomfort

Roma have already outperformed the odds more than once in this season's European campaign.Eusebio Di Francesco's team emerged from a tight Group C as winners when they jumped Chelsea to first place, Atlético de Madrid could only finish third and was eliminated from the competition altogether.

Their home form is formidable since they have not yet lost or even conceded a goal. At the Stadio Olimpico, a different story outside home.

While they drew at Chelsea, they were beaten at Atletico, Shakhtar Donetsk and Barcelona, ​​and if they can escape from Anfield with a decent result, they will have confidence they can do business in Rome.

In Edin Dzeko, they have a striker who has knowledge of English football due to his time with Manchester City, and has six goals in 10 Leagu Champions outings e.

Question marks remain on a liver defense group that has shown vulnerability this season, and conceded two late goals against West Brom on Saturday.

Simon Johnson in Evening Standard said that Dzeko could have enjoyed watching the end of that game: [19659019] Simon Johnson @ sjstandardsport

The two sides have met before, with Liverpool defeating Rome in the 1984 European Cup final. Carlo Ancelotti, who played for Rome, said that this is a good opportunity to take revenge, as it shows Goal:

Roma has shown great team spirit in the competition this season, and that will be necessary in what will be a raucous atmosphere in Anfield. The team has shown that this season they are not worthy and, after having beaten Barcelona, ​​they will feel that everything is possible now.
