Despite beating Tottenham 2-1 in the 6th matchday of the English Premier League on Saturday, Liverpool front line including Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah and Senegal's forward Sadio mane have showed signs of selfishness during the game that angered the Reds' fans.

Liverpool's fans have criticized the front line duo Salah and Mane for their failure to convert more goalscoring opportunities against Tottenham as the Senegalese attacker had more chances to pass to the Egyptian winger through on goal and instead decided another option.

Football fans and pundits believe that the selfishness between Salah and Mane could threaten Liverpool's season.

"Liverpool‘s front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane are showing signs of selfishness," Jermaine Jenas former Spurs and Newcastle midfielder told BBC after the game.

"The selfishness between Salah and Mane could affect on the Liverpool's season," Egypt's and Ahly icon Mohamed Abou-Treika said after the 2-1 win over Tottenham.

On the other hand, Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp believes that the game against Tottenahm was the best game of the season.

“We were that good it was difficult for Tottenham,” Klopp said.

“The performance today was better than the result. It was the best game of the season for us." he added.
