Sadio Mane opened the score at the game after 22 minutes when he met James Milner’s cross while Michail Antonio equalized six minutes later.
Rice added, “They kept going wide and they obviously haven’t got a target man to play up to, so we frustrated their game-plan and we got out with a point.”
Salah has been a victim to racist chants during the game and West Ham club decided to take an action to identify the individual involved.
Salah won Premier League Golden Boot last season and he is the main contender to win it again this season as he is leading the race for Golden Boot award with 16 goals.
