Scout Report – Mohamed Salah

Filed under: Scout Reports - Posted by: Paul

Jose Mourinho took less than 24 hours to replace the departed Juan Mata on Sunday afternoon by adding Mohamed Salah to the Chelsea ranks. The 21-year-old arrives from FC Basel in a deal reported to be in the region of £11m, with the London club beating long-time suitors Liverpool for the Egyptian’s signature:

In a busy winter window, Salah is the third player to arrive at Stamford Bridge, following the earlier acquisition of Nemanja Matic and Bertrand Traore. Mourinho, as always, had plenty to say on the matter and despite losing a player of Mata’s calibre, seems more than content with the versatile Salah’s addition to his first-team squad:

“I like the fact that he can play the same way our attacking players do, which is players with adaptability, to play right, left or behind the striker. He’s young, he’s fast, he’s creative, he’s enthusiastic. When we analysed him he looks the kind of humble personality on the pitch, ready to work for the team and to work and to adapt himself to a new life. We think with him and André Schürrle, Eden Hazard, Oscar and Willian we will be fine. We lose an experienced top player like Juan Mata but we bring in a young player with great potential. Hopefully he comes and hopefully with the talented players we have around in the same positions we all can develop together.”

The History

A product of the El Mokawloon youth system in his native country, Salah progressed through the ranks to make his debut for the club in May 2010. After notching four goals in his first 23 league matches, he stepped up another level in 2011/12 and produced seven goals and a trio of assists in just 15 appearances before the remainder of the season was cancelled as a result of the Port Said Stadium disaster.

The five foot nine inch wideman then moved to Europe, joining Basel in June 2012 on a four-year contract. Over a season-and-a-half with the Swiss outfit, he returned nine goals and nine assists in 47 league games and also impressed in domestic and European cup matches, with 11 goals and eight assists over 32 appearances – including a goal in both group games against his new club in the Champions League earlier this term.

On the international stage, Salah has turned out for Egypt on 45 occasions, at Under 20, Under 23 and senior level, finding the net on 21 occasions and providing 15 assists.

The Prospects

Mourinho may have initially hailed the new boy’s ability to play through the middle but it seems far more likely that Salah will be vying for a place on the flank. After the Egyptian’s acquisition was confirmed, the Blues boss suggested Oscar will continue to be his preferred choice for the role in “the hole”:

“We tried to go for a young player, a left-footed player, and a fast player with the ball. He is the kind of top player who likes to get behind players so I think he was a good option. Juan is not comfortable on the sides, he tried very hard there and he did quite well in some matches, playing from the right, but it is not his natural habitat. I’ll build a team around Oscar in that position.”

At the moment, then, it seems Hazard will remain as near to nailed-on as we can expect – regardless of formation or competition for places, the Belgian is pretty much an automatic starter. Oscar’s prospects will only be diminished on the rare occasion Mourinho rolls out a 4-3-3 system to bolster his central midfield – when the Blues operate with their familiar 4-2-3-1, his starting berth looks secure.

Essentially, Salah looks set to enter a three-way fight with Willian and Schurrle for the remaining role on the flank, then. Certainly, if Mourinho’s treatment of the latter two is anything to go by, Salah could well face settling-in period over the next few months as his manager looks to integrate him within the squad. Despite splashing the cash on the above-mentioned duo in the previous transfer window, Mourinho has remained cautious with their game time – Willian has eight starts, whilst Schurrle has featured in the first XI on seven of the opening 22 Gameweeks.

Setting you back 6.5 in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) and 7.1 in the Sky Sports game, the young Egyptian faces a tough task to earn our Fantasy attentions, in spite of a relatively favourable price tag. Game time may arrive from the bench more often than not, but – in a similar situation to Mata at United – Salah’s domestic minutes could be boosted by the fact he is ineligible to play in the Champions League this season, having already turned out for Basel. With a number of mid-priced options offering guaranteed starts and consistent attacking returns, however, it seems unlikely the Egyptian, for all his undoubted talents, will be on many a Fantasy radar for the short-term, at least.

  2. Please rate my WC team:

    Mannone - Adrián
    Koscielny - Azpilicueta - Ward - Steven Taylor - Chambers
    Mata - Hazard - Mirallas/AJ - Puncheon - Ward-Prowse
    Agüero - van Persie - Suárez

    What do you think?

    Was going with AJ as third mid, but since he doesn´t play on GW28 and Mirallas might benefit form Lukaku absense...

    • 10 months, 12 hours ago
    1. I hate it because I can't afford it.

      • 10 months, 12 hours ago
        • 10 months, 12 hours ago
      1. IT! Hello. Havent seen you around for a while.

        How's your season going? I'm going to need a strong 2H!

        Thoughts on Rooney vs. Mata? Was all set to get Rooney as great differential - but Mata could be enough given CL ineligibility?

        • 10 months, 12 hours ago
        1. Hello hello CC. Season is only okay, floating around 100k but hoping the second half of the season will help me get top 10k. Toughest one yet.

          I think Rooney is the better shout if you can afford but I can't afford him so got Mata instead.

          • 10 months, 12 hours ago
          1. Sensible as ever -thank you. Will basically boil down to:

            4m def + Eriksen/Mirralles/Rambo (when fit) + Rooney

            vs.

            Koscienly + Mata + DAD (!)?

            Exactly the same position re: rank for me. Finding a lot tougher than previous years to make any big jumps up. good luck man

            • 10 months, 12 hours ago
    2. Good on paper. You don't need RVP or Kos though

      • 10 months, 12 hours ago
      1. got Kos for 5.3 (5,7 today) and Arsenal is awesome defensive cover.

        RvP I feel what you mean, but I just have to give it a try, even if it ruins the rest of my season. It's a gut kinf of thing.. ;)

        • 10 months, 12 hours ago
        1. Fair enough, good luck mate:)

          • 10 months, 12 hours ago
    3. not bad though u sacrifice a 3rd premium mid to get rvp..but rvp takes up alot of cash making u difficult to get in players for gw29...and ward prowse is not playing and same for taylor and chambers i think they may not be nailed on by gw29...so on gw29 u may have a big problem.

      • 10 months, 12 hours ago
      1. yep, those 3 (prowse / taylor / chambers) are my main doubts, but also are the most easy to solve... ;)

  5. In swapping Anderson for Mata David Moyes has lowered the average age of the sqaud by about 1.5 years, the average height by about 3 inches and the average weight by 100lbs

  22. Have AJ, Januzaj, Kolarov, Aguero and Mata missing GW 28 and Chester and Coleman injured...

    Guess Coleman should be back for GW28 and no need to sell him...

    Would probably get rid of Chester, AJ and Januzaj in GW25-27 and bench Kolarov, Aguero and Mata...

    Am I thinking correctly... WC already played...

  24. Predictions on who to score in City game tonight?

    • 10 months, 12 hours ago
    1. Aguero and Adebeyor

      • 10 months, 12 hours ago
  25. Looks like it's time to sell up for Januzaj owners then.

    Given that Mata, Rooney and Van Persie are pretty much nailed on, that leaves one attacking spot for Januzaj, Valencia, Kagawa, Young, Nani(And maybe even Welbeck)....

    1. yeah, only change to that is injuries (and they seem to be frequent with RVP and Rooney)

  27. What's everyone's take on this Salah cat? Haven't seen much of him, I must admit, and am wondering how good a prospect he really is.

    • 10 months, 11 hours ago
    1. Well. That went well. I'll remember this the next time I see shameless RMT's....... :)

  28. Anybody think Flanagan will now be the regular starter again since he's fit? Know he got 70+ minutes last night, just wondering about every week. Need a cheap defender (4.3 or less) so I can afford Wilshere -> Llama.

    • 10 months, 9 hours ago
    1. I think so. Enrique still out for several weeks, GJ out indefinitely, Kelly doesnt seem to get fit, Cissokho is a wreck, Rodgers praises Flanno heavily in every interview. Should be nailed. Still, Liverpool dont get many CS
