Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has named Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah as the best player in the Premier League at the moment, following the Egyptian's impressive start to the new season.

The 29-year-old attacker has already scored nine goals from as much appearances in all competitions for Liverpool this season, and was arguably the best player on the pitch during the Reds' 2-2 draw with Manchester City in the English top-flight, assisting and scoring a goal each in the game.

Salah's form has impressed Ferdinand, and the former England centre-back has named the Liverpool star as the best player in the Premier League.

"He’s the best player in the Premier League right now. It’s burning my chest talking like this about a Liverpool player," he said on Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE [via SPORTbible].


Ferdinand also praised Salah's outrageous goal against Man City, stating: "[His goal] was like being on FIFA, that chop, I’ve done that many times on FIFA where you pretend to whip it top corner and then you chop it back. Playground skills.

"Salah is scoring goals that is helping Liverpool win Premier League and Champions League titles."

Meanwhile, Liverpool currently sit second in the Premier League table with 15 points from seven fixtures, and are the only team unbeaten in the English top-flight this season.
