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 and he capped a sensational performance with a brilliant individual goal.
“He is top. We all see it. Who is better than him?” Klopp told BT Sport.
“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, the longest run of consecutive scoring appearances for the club since Daniel Sturridge, who also scored in eight, in February 2014.
