Liverpool legend, John Aldridge, believes that the club front three Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, and Sadio Mane are far from their normal form.
Liverpool haven’t won any of their last five games, drawing two and losing three, and dropped from first to fourth place in the Premier League.
As a result, the whole team has been under a lot of criticism by fans and pundits, especially Salah, Firmino, and Mane.
Since the Egyptian scored a brace against Crystal Palace in December, none of them was able to find the back of the net, apart from his Senegalese teammate.

Aldridge didn’t hide his disappointment with the team’s display. However, he made sure to praise the defense’s efforts.
“The front three are getting fingers pointed at them and quite rightly so because you’re paid to score goals,” Aldridge told LiverpoolEcho.
“You’re on a lot of money to score goals and you have to do it. Centre-forwards have to score one in every two games basically and they’re not doing it.

“It dumbfounds me. A team that is free-scoring the way Liverpool are, to go from one extreme to the other. We were all worried about the defence but the defence have been brilliant.
“It’s the attacking part and the front three have lost their mojo.
“Mane looks a threat, more so than Salah or Firmino. They look a pale shadow of the players we know they can be. The ball isn’t falling for them and the confidence isn’t there.
“It just shows when the confidence is down, the play isn’t great, that you snatch at things as well. It’s really worrying. For whatever reason, they’re not creating chances.
“We never looked like scoring against Southampton. Newcastle, no.
“That’s the worry. If you’re missing sitters and hitting the woodwork and the goalkeeper is pulling off magnificent saves, but I can’t really remember many in the last couple of games.”

The Reds have been struggling since the beginning of the year, having been without a win in their last five games. They now trail behind the league leaders Manchester United with six points difference.
Salah was unable to score in his last five league appearances and will hope to return to scoring ways in the FA Cup clash against Manchester United.
