Mohamed Salah pulled it out the bag once again for Liverpool on Saturday.

Since putting pen to paper on a return to the Premier League, Salah has consigned his calamitous 12 month spell with Chelsea to history with an electric comeback on English football.

The Egyptian has forged a remarkable attacking quartet with Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane that most sides in Europe can only dream of.

The stats tell the whole story. In 27 appearances for the Reds this season, Salah has contributed an unprecedented 22 goals and six assists.

There's no longer any doubt that he's worth every penny of the £35 million Liverpool paid for him in the summer and he extended his purple patch in the clash with Leicester City.

Under the watchful eyes of new signing Virgil van Dijk, Liverpool secured a 2-1 victory to keep the pace with Chelsea and Manchester United in the shadow of the league leaders.

The Reds started timidly with Jamie Vardy firing the Foxes into the lead after just three minutes. Enter Salah.

Latching onto a stunning back heel from Mane, the 25-year-old showed brilliant penalty area footwork to fire past Kasper Schmeichel. He repeated his antics later in the second half, too, finding the bottom corner with his trusty left-foot.

His importance to Liverpool has never been more apparent with Leicester's impressive form under Claude Puel proving difficult to overcome.

One man who was undoubtedly impressed was none other than Jamie Carragher.

The Sky Sports pundit has always been a fan of the Egyptian but has rarely tweeted about the Liverpool star, in spite of his heroic antics.

After the Leicester game, though, he couldn't help showing his emotions and even proposed that Salah has made the best start to life at Liverpool in the club's history. Check out the tweet:

It's an interesting debate and supporters aren't exactly arguing with him.

The only objections lie with the sarcastic nominations of the likes of El Hadji Diouf and Sotirios Kyrgiakos who, funnily enough, don't genuinely compare.

If Liverpool are to continue climbing the table and progressing in the Champions League, then Salah will prove an invaluable member to the cause.

Married to the signing of Van Dijk and Naby Keita's summer arrival, there's cause for optimism for Jurgen Klopp's men.
