Mohamed Salah has no intention of taking notice of his critics' comments.

The Egypt international has come in for fierce criticism over the last few months, with many accusing him of going to ground easily.

That accusation was levelled at the former Chelsea man earlier this month after he won a hotly-debated penalty in Liverpool's 2-1 victory over West Ham.

Certain aspects of Salah's game have also been under the microscope, with his willingness to pass to his team-mates in and around the danger zone being questioned.

It's been an extremely interesting start to the season for Jurgen Klopp's men.

They got their title defence off to a shaky start as they edged out a seven-goal thriller against Leeds, before going on to conceded seven in a hammering by Aston Villa.

But there's no slowing down in what is going to be a busy campaign – with Klopp ensuring his men continue at full pace as they bid for more title glory.

Salah, like many of his colleagues, has found it weird adapting to circumstances surrounding the 2020-21 campaign, saying: "This season has been crazy.

He said: "The number of goals I never expected and playing without fans, of course, is crazy.

"I think the fans make a huge difference, you know. The fans give games a different atmosphere and give you a different motivation so I can say this is the main reason for some crazy results.

"There is also some pressure for us because Virgil (van Dijk) used to play every game for the last few years, but now he is injured.

"In the meantime, other players have to perform. I think the young players have done good."
