Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain refers to his team-mate Mo Salah not as the ‘Egyptian King,’ but ‘Houdini’!
The Englishman posted a picture of Salah eluding him in training alongside the new nickname!
We’re pretty sure Ox was referring to Salah’s ability to get out of tricky situations rather than the fact he goes missing… (because he really doesn’t!).
On Saturday, the pair combined excellently for Liverpool’s second goal, after Ox drove through midfield and slipped a clever ball through to out sublime wing-forward.
As he nearly always does, Salah finished coolly with his left.
More of the same, please!
