That is according to NBC Sports pundit and former USA midfielder Kyle Martino.
Liverpool are top of the Premier League table following Sunday’s 2-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage.
But the Reds had to rely on a late James Milner penalty to get the job done after failing to kill the game off earlier.
Salah was wasteful in front of goal and has now not scored in his last seven outings in all competitions.
The Egyptian has netted 20 times this season, some way off the 44 he reached in his first campaign at Anfield.
Salah has scored just four goals since the 2-1 loss to title rivals Manchester City on January 3, a game Martino claims was pivotal in Liverpool’s season.
And he reckons the 26-year-old’s form has had a big negative impact on his side.
“Well today’s a positive,” Martino said of the Fulham win.
“But it was just too close to disaster. The margins have gotten tighter, it’s ever since that January 3 game against Manchester City.
“It’s almost like when you trip and you’re sprinting to keep yourself up.
“Every step gets shakier and you look like you’re going to fall on your face.
“It’s kind of like every step, every game after that, they’re trying to find their footing.
“[Bayern] Munich seemed like a moment where they found their footing.
“Today is not a negative but it’s just another moment of Mo Salah being anonymous.
“The law of averages say he’s going to come on and start scoring, but he keeps getting opportunities and doesn’t look like himself.
“The reason the margin’s so tight is they don’t have the Mo Salah that they know they can have.”
