Mohamed Salah On the Way to Being the Best: Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool vs Watford

Liverpool vs Watford

Though he didn't add to his tally of 14 goals for the campaign, Mane created the same number of chances as Salah (three each), more than any other player.

Salah's haul against Watford also moved him four clear of Harry Kane in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot.

A hapless Watford side were put to the sword nearly singlehandedly by Mohamed Salah on Saturday night, with the Liverpool winger scoring his first-ever hat-trick in English football as the Reds romped to a 5-0 win at Anfield to move into 3rd place in the Premier League table.

The 25-year-old was close to joining Liverpool back in 2014, however he left Swiss side Basel to join fellow Premier League side Chelsea following a collapsed deal with the Reds.

Therefore, Salah - who has averaged 0.88 goals per game in his 41 appearances - could have as many as 12 matches to better Rush, who needed 65 outings to reach 47.

The last Liverpool player to score an EPL hat-trick was Luis Suarez in 2013-14.


In a gameweek that saw just 4 games being played out owing to clashing FA Cup fixtures, Liverpool hosted Watford.

"If the question is what do I think about his performance, I think it's quite exceptional", Klopp said afterwards.

The win put the Merseyside club back up to third in the Premier League, after losing to Manchester United the week before.

Maybe the Watford players were on to something - maybe the most accurate way to summarise Salah's exploits is with a simple yet effective 'fucking hell!' I feel it has my style of football. "If you look at me now and five years ago, everything has changed - mentally, physically. everything".

The Reds have just one match, against Crystal Palace in the Premier League, before playing City in the first leg of their quarter-final.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes comparisons between Mohamed Salah and Barcelona's five-time Ballon d'Or victor Lionel Messi are premature, but that the Egyptian is on his way to one day becoming the best player in the world.
