Super Salah hits four as Liverpool thrash Watford

Share

Mohamed Salah bagged four goals as Liverpool put last weekend's defeat to Man Utd behind them and demolish Watford 5-0 at Anfield.

Amid the acclaim, the haste to authoritatively announce it a matter of time before Real Madrid or Barcelona make their bid was only marginally slower than one of Salah's sprints to goal.

Liverpool have seven Premier League matches left, plus at least two Champions League games which could potentially turn into five should Liverpool reach the final and if he keeps this current vein of form, you wonder if could better Ian Rush's landmark, who scored 47 goals in 1983-84.

Firmino has fed Salah three times, while the Egyptian's latest assist means he has repaid the favour on no less than four occasions.

On an individual level, Salah's four goals moved him up to 28 in the league, four ahead of Spurs' Harry Kane, who is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines through injury.

Messi showed why he is still widely considered the world's best by scoring his 100th Champions League goal in tearing Chelsea apart in a 3-0 win on Wednesday.

In the same match, Salah set a record scoring 20 goals with his left foot in this season.

Klopp had said Salah does not want to be compared with the five-time Ballon d'Or victor but maintained that his wrecker-in-chief "is in a fantastic way".

City's director of football Txiki Begiristain said: "We know each other very well, they are a very offensive team, the truth is it is going to be a great couple of games".

The feat was achieved after Salah scored his first super hat-trick on Saturday against British team Watford, granting Liverpool a 5-0 win in the 31st round of the Premier League. Honestly, both are fantastic, and now Salah is in a very good moment, one of the best in Europe. He is a fantastic player who I was privileged to play with.

"Yeah, I think Mo is on the way".

Salah has scored 36 goals for Liverpool in all competitions since joining from Roma a year ago - the most by any player in a debut season with the Reds.

"We had to cope and deal with hard conditions".

In the 77th minute, Salah completed his hat-trick as he collected the ball inside the box and rolled it past Watford keeper Orestis Karnezis.

On the campaign trail with Vladimir Putin
Putin adds that he has been informed by security officers that the procedure in such a situation is to take off the plane. In other comments in the video, Putin said his grandfather served as a cook for both Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin.
