Egypt's Mohamed Salah Leads Lionel Messi In European Golden Shoe Race

Share

Liverpool smashed Watford 5-0 in the Premier League, with Doucoure having a chance to impress the Anfield crowd.

Mohamed Salah scored four times as Watford lost 5-0 at Anfield on Saturday. After the match all his teammates signed his ball and Liverpool captain, Jordan Henderson summed the Egyptian superstar up perfectly in just a few words. I just kept it simple for him.

However, Klopp admitted he can now only wait and hope his key men, including Salah, return safely from two weeks of global duty ahead of a huge month for Liverpool.Victory moved Klopp's men back above Tottenham Hotspur into third in the Premier League as they moved a step closer to securing Champions League football next season via a top-four finish.

The four-goal haul was the first by a Liverpool player since Luis Suarez managed it in 2013.

Following his marvelous four-goal performance against Watford that guided him to lead the Premier League top-scorers race with 28 goals, several pundits and coaches have compared the Egypt global to the Argentinian star. Understandably, it's led to comparisons between the two players.

Among other late-night hosts, ABC's Jimmy Kimmel offered a short on-air spoof past year of the Pences' Marlon Bundo book. Oliver reminded the audience that Pence was the only person Trump couldn't fire and could become president by default.

Henderson believes that Salah's strike rate this season has given Liverpool's other players the assurance of knowing there will usually be an end product to all their hard work, much as they had when Suarez was leading the line. They are both so good in their own right.

If Barca's Argentina global does manage to finish ahead of Salah, it would make him the first player to get his hands on the European Golden Shoe five times (2009/10, 2011/12, 2012/13, 2016/17).

'Luis moved on to Barcelona and is doing fantastically well.

"But Mo this season has been unbelievable". He is a big plus to have in the team'.
