Pearce says both players have enough mental qualities to avoid injuries.

Suarez has been injury free in 98 % of matches during his career, while Salah has been injury free in 97 % of matches.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, who has played with both stars, has also mentioned this important factor.

“Yeah, Mo’s the same,” Henderson said (via LiverpoolECHO).

“He’s got this very strong mentality. If they try to put pressure on him, they will only make him better. The more people are against him, the more he will want to prove them wrong.”

Salah’s recent goal from penalty helped Liverpool beat Brighton and keep leading in EPL with 4-point advantage over Manchester City.
