Record-breaker Salah hits four as Liverpool crush Watford

Record-breaker Salah hits four as Liverpool crush Watford

Salah, 25, is on course to win the Premier League Golden Boot in his first season with the Anfield club, adding four goals to his already impressive tally this season in Saturday's 5-0 humbling of Watford. "The only thing with Messi is that you will see it year in, year out every year he's doing that he's picking up them numbers".

Salah's impact in 41 games for the Reds has brought comparisons with Luis Suarez, who scored 82 goals in 133 appearances before joining Barcelona in 2014. He has 36 in all competitions this season, the most by a Liverpool player in a debut campaign for the club.

Mohamed Salah now boasts 28 league goals to his name. Salah is an out-and-out striker whereas Kane, on the other hand, has so much more to his game than scoring goals.

Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah has said he is flattered to have been compared with Lionel Messi. It's the best moment of my career.

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).

Receiver Nelson signs two-year deal with Oakland Raiders
Edgar Bennett, offensive coordinator with the Packers last season, is now the wide receivers coach for the Raiders . The Oakland Raiders are shuffling wide receivers, signing free agent Jordy Nelson and releasing Michael Crabtree .

"Not to mention Mane, Emre Can, Dejan Lovren and the many other good players we have here at Liverpool".

However, Klopp admitted he can now only wait and hope his key men, including Salah, return safely from two weeks of worldwide duty ahead of a huge month for Liverpool. "They showed that at Old Trafford". Kevin De Bruyne, along with a number of his Manchester City team-mates, has been outstanding while Kane has also delivered with remarkable consistency.

Straight after the break, Liverpool went for Watford's jugular and made it 3-0 as Salah worked hard to stop the ball from running out of play before crossing for Firmino who wonderfully backheeled past Karnezis.

The top-scoring player on this list, though his goals have come in the Portuguese Liga where a lower UEFA co-efficient means he earns only 1.5 points per goal, rather than two for goals in the "big five" leagues.
