Merson: Liverpool very different without Salah and Mane

Arsenal title winner Paul Merson has questioned the strength of Liverpool without attacking pair Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

The Reds were left frustrated after being held to a goalless draw by Arsenal in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final clash, with both Salah and Mane notable absentees due to the Africa Cup of Nations.

“My biggest worry if I was a Liverpool fan? Salah and Mane,” Merson said on Sky Sports.

“If they play tonight, it’s a different story. It just shows you.

“I watch other teams play; I watch Man City – you can take two players out of their team; you can take two out of Chelsea. Take two out of Liverpool, and it’s completely different.”
