Mohamed Salah was captured expressing his sheer frustration after watching Chelsea equalise against Liverpool in the 85th minute on Saturday.
The Egyptian had put the Reds ahead in the 65th minute with his 10th Premier League goal of the season and was minutes away from a dream win against his old team.
It wasn’t to be, however, with Willian’s wayward cross looping over Simon Mignolet and into the back of the net to earn the away side a point at Anfield.
Salah was left visibly annoyed as he watched his team give up a lead for the second time in a week.

The source of Salah’s frustration aside, his reaction shared similarities with the kind of passion and desire that was seen from Luis Suarez during his spell on Merseyside.
It served as a welcomed demonstration that there is heart and a dedication to succeeding at Liverpool behind the forward’s stunning form.
With 15 goals for the season already to his name, Salah may also have the chance to challenge Suarez’s tally of 31 in the 2013/2014 campaign.
Having to settle for an admittedly fair draw against Chelsea promises to have felt better than giving up a 3-0 lead to draw 3-3 with Sevilla during midweek.
That said, Salah’s high standards are what this club needs.
