Gary Neville gets busy listing players better than Mohamed Salah

Piers Morgan inspired the exercise

Piers Morgan clearly rates Mohamed Salah.

Salah has taken the Premier League by storm since signing from Roma in the summer, scoring 31 goals already this season for Liverpool.

The Reds forward kept well in the race for the Golden Boot with his side’s second of the game when Liverpool trounced West Ham 4-1 at Anfield.

Morgan took to Twitter during Saturday night’s Match of the Day to proclaim Salah “the best player in the Premier League since Thierry Henry.”

There’s no denying Salah’s quality but one man who took umbrage with Morgan’s bold claim was Gary Neville, the Manchester United legend who felt that it was far too early in Salah’s Premier League career to afford him such an honour.

Neville responded with a series of laughing emojis before he then spent a large chunk of his Sunday afternoon providing Morgan with examples of players who he considered better than Salah.

Not content to stop there, Neville began retweeting followers’ suggestions and seemed hell-bent on proving his point.

If Salah continues finding the net at the clip he’s doing so, it won’t be long before Neville will have to cave and find a spot for him in his top 10 but, as for now, he’s not having it.
