Liverpool forwards, Salah and Mane, according to former England striker Michael Owen, are “not natural finishers.”

Meanwhile, the two African attackers have scored regularly for the Reds in recent seasons.

Salah’s goal in their 1-1 draw with Newcastle on Saturday, was his 20th in the Premier League this season.

However, from 22 shots, Liverpool could only score one goal, which allowed Joe Willock net a stoppage-time equalizer.

Mane has scored only eight goals in the Premier League this campaign, compared to his previous tallies of 18 last term and 22 the season before.

Owen told Premier League Productions after the Newcastle draw: “That’s the problem, Mane, brilliant player, scores lots of goals.

“Salah, unbelievable player as well, scores lots of goals.

“But they’re not natural finishers, they’re not someone that you can hang your hat on.

“They’ve scored goals consistently because Liverpool have, like today, created so many chances.

“But they’ve been wanting, or the team have been found wanting a lot of the season with missed chances.”
