Salah's sensational 2017-18 continued with a four-goal haul as Jurgen Klopp's side romped to a 5-0 success at Anfield on Saturday, the Egypt global taking his tally to 36 goals across all competitions this season. The result never seemed in doubt after Salah opened the scoring in the fourth minute. The Egyptian was played in behind, embarrassed Miguel Britos with his footwork and finished with his right-foot underneath a hapless Orestis Karnezis.

Even at that stage it appeared the game was beyond the visitors, but Firmino made sure five minutes into the second half when he backheeled Salah's near-post cross through his legs and inside the far post.

Salah turned provider immediately after the break when his cross was wonderfully backheeled past Karnezis by Roberto Firmino.

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has insisted that he remains happy at Anfield amid rumours linking with him a big-money move to Real Madrid. "He's a great player, if not the best then one of the most important players for Liverpool", he told Sport 360.

The first and third goals of his first Reds hat-trick had a Lionel Messi-like quality to them; dumping Miguel Britos on his backside for the opener before sneaking in a shot through a crowd of players while falling over for the third. He scored one and assisted another as Liverpool became the first side to beat Pep Guardiola's side in the Premier League this campaign with a 4-3 victory in January.
