Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah has been named in the BBC’s official Premier League Team of the Week for Round 12. Salah scored the Reds’ first goal in their 2-0 win over Fulham at Anfield over the weekend, helping Jurgen Klopp’s men bounce back from their midweek Champions League setback in Belgrade.
Another LFC player to make the Team of the Week was Scottish left back Andy Robertson, whose inch perfect across in the second half allowed Xherdan Shaqiri to seal victory for the home side.

Salah and Robertson also made it to Jamie Redknapp’s Team of the Week- again the only two LFC players present in the XI.
Jamie Redknapp’s team of the week: Schmeichel, Foyth, Stones, Yedlin, Robertson, Gana, Bernardo Silva. David Silva, Cavaleiro, Salah, Rondon
Robbie Savage’s Team of the Week had space for Robertson, but not for Salah, with the former Welsh medio opting for Jimenez and Rondon upfront in his 4-4-2 formation.
Savage team of the week: Leno, Robertson, Mina, Stones, Doherty, Harris, David Silva, Fernandinho, Costa, Rondon, Jimenez
Robertson thus featured in all three pundits’ Team of the Week, and so did Manchester City’s David Silva and Newcastle’s Salomon Rondon.
