Ex-Liverpool skipper Gerrard: Salah on the verge of greatness

Ex-Liverpool skipper Gerrard: Salah on the verge of greatness

Salah hit the Reds' first two goals of the weekend against the hapless Hornets, before his Brazilian strike partner swooped to make it three before the hour mark.

Liverpool FC will take on Premier League leaders Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-final next month.

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

'Man City knows it's not gonna be easy, said Klopp.

The result for Watford sees them drop a place to 11th in the Premier League, as Gracia still searches for his first away win and for his side to score an away goal since arriving in January.

Salah eventually completed his hat-trick in the 77th minute as the Egyptian cut onto his left before firing a low effort past Karnezis from 12-yards out. The whole team did, of course, but around the first goal I would say Mo especially because it was obviously slippery, so everybody suffered - but not Mo in that situation.

Four-goal Mohamed Salah set a Liverpool record as they moved to third in the Premier League by thrashing Watford on Saturday, while at the other end of the table Crystal Palace's win edged them out of the relegation zone.


Salah has scored 36 goals for Liverpool in all competitions this season, a truly remarkable feat considering Easter is still a way off.

"I don't think Mo or anybody else wants to be compared with Lionel Messi - he is the one who has been doing what he's been doing for what feels like 20 years or so".

"We know we play against one of the best teams in Europe at this moment and they were much better than us", said the Spaniard.

"The goals we scored were unbelievably good, and the boys didn't stop", added Klopp.

"We had to cope and deal with hard conditions". Fourth and fifth goals were outstanding, so that's all you need to be on the highest level. Thirteen minutes from time, Salah displayed all the best attributes of his game - strength, speed and skill - to secure possession of the match ball as he held off two Watford players before poking the ball home.

The Reds are winning plaudits for their style of play, unlike Manchester United, who are continually criticised for poor performances and inspid football.

"The Jose Mourinhos, Paul Pogbas of this world, they seem to be bigger than the football club".
