The former Liverpool striker believes Salah still kept a low profile during Liverpool's win against Ajax.

In their Champions League meeting with the Dutch side, Liverpool opened the door to their group qualification with Joel Matip's 89th minute header that was confirmed by goal line technology. Salah scored the first goal at Anfield in just 15 minutes courtesy Diogo Jota's assist.

However the Liverpool winger was far removed from his attacking play and Owen suggested the Egyptian was quiet during the match and hinted at why Liverpool should be worried about his depleting form.

"His overall game, he ran at his man a couple of times, looked sharp but his overall game was quite quiet," Owen told BT Sport .

"I think he’s still one of the Liverpool players when Jurgen Klopp was talking about the previous game in Naples, he mentioned three players who could keep their head up; Luis Diaz had to be one of them, Harvey Elliott I think as well, Thiago came off the bench and done well and you can’t criticise Alisson at the moment.

"Mohamed Salah is one of the leaders in the camp and his performances have just dipped lately, that goal will give him a boost of confidence."
