Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp called Mohamed Salah the best player in the world after the Egyptian’s sublime display in the 5-0 win at Watford.
Salah’s glorious pass set up Sadio Mane’s opening goal.
He also capped a sensational performance with a brilliant individual goal.
“He is top. We all see it. Who is better than him?” Klopp said.
“His performance was massive today. The pass for the first goal was great and the second goal was special.”
Salah has now scored in each of his past eight games for the Reds.
This is the longest run of consecutive scoring appearances for the club since Daniel Sturridge, who also scored in eight, in February 2014.
His effort against the Hornets – weaving away from several defenders before curling into the far corner.
It was of similar quality to his goal in the Reds’ last top-flight match, against Manchester City, which Klopp said would be remembered by supporters in “in 50 or 60 years’ time”.
Salah’s goal takes him level with former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba as the highest-scoring African player in Premier League history with 104 goals.
