Arsenal legend Sol Campbell says he could handle Liverpool’s in-form goalscorer Mohamed Salah.
Salah scored four times and collected an assist in Liverpool’s 5-0 thumping of Watford at Anfield.
Campbell believes the best way to cope with Salah’s trickery and pace is to close him down equally quickly.
“With Salah it’s good to have a bit of pace with him, you’ve got to have quick feet as well as a defender because he likes chopping and changing,” he said on Sky Sports.
“You’ve got to have good anticipation against him, if you haven’t he will just do you, he’ll set you up.
“Also I think you’ve got to go out to him quicker, don’t let him build up a pace to turn you inside out at that pace.
“If you get out to him quick enough, you can kind of slow him down a bit before he comes to you in the box.
“Once he’s in the box, he’s the master.”
