What more can you say about Mohamed Salah?
The 25-year-old has been a revelation at Anfield following his £34.4 million move from AS Roma last summer, scoring goals for fun in all competitions for the Reds.
Salah took his tally to 30 goals for the season with his first-half strike against Porto in the Champions League group stages this evening. He becomes the first Liverpool player to break the 30-goal mark since Luis Suarez in the 2013-14 campaign.
Suarez finished that season with 31 goals. We’re only midway through February and, at this rate, it wouldn’t be a shock if Salah ends the campaign with at least 40 goals to his name.
The Egyptian winger has exceeded all expectations since moving to Merseyside.
Salah's goal v Porto was sensational
He’s scored some absolute beauties over the past six months but this evening’s goal was very unique.
After James Milner’s shot cannoned back off the post, Salah brilliantly lifted the ball over Porto goalkeeper José Sá, then took a touch with his head before sticking the ball in the net.
Watch it here…
"If Messi did that everybody in the world would be going crazy,” Steven Gerrard said at half-time on BT Sport.
Peter Crouch's tweet after Salah scores was superb
Another former Liverpool player also reacted to the goal over on Twitter.
Peter Crouch, who is easily one of the funniest men in football and an absolute hoot on Twitter, made a tongue-in-cheek comment about Liverpool’s star man.
“If salah didnt panic in front of goal he’d score more,” Crouch wrote.
Most people detected Crouch’s sarcasm and found it very amusing…
Some people actually thought his tweet about Salah was being serious (honestly!) and Crouch then tweeted again an hour later...
Liverpool thrash Porto
Liverpool now have one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals following tonight’s hugely impressive 5-0 victory away in Portugal.
A hat-trick from Sadio Mane, whose return to form will have delighted Jurgen Klopp and the Liverpool fans, plus goals from Salah and Roberto Firmino earned the Premier League side a deserved win.
