Steven Gerrard made a big mistake while analysing Mo Salah's goal v Man City live on air

FBL-EUR-C1-MAN CITY-LIVERPOOL

Liverpool are back amongst the European football elite once again.

After years of mediocrity and seasons without any Champions League football, the Reds now appear to be a well-oiled, dangerous machine under Jurgen Klopp.

Their 2-1 win at the Etihad last night to seal a 5-1 aggregate win over Manchester City was easily the German manager's finest hour so far on Merseyside.

Aside from a dominant first-half display on their home turf, City were beaten by the better team over two legs.

Mohamed Salah proved why he's the favourite for the PFA Player of the Year with two goals in the two games, while Dejan Lovren and Virgil van Dijk appear to have forged a pretty good defensive partnership.

Salah's goal just after the break at the Etihad was the decisive moment in the tie, with City pushing for a second goal which could have changed everything.

The Egyptian's composure to pick up on a spill from Ederson and dink it over Nicolas Otamendi proved once again that he one of the best in the world.

In the BT Sport studio after, Gary Lineker, Frank Lampard, Rio Ferdinand and Steven Gerrard all marvelled at Salah's brilliance.

However, Gerrard made one major error when discussing it; he forgot Salah was left-footed.

Now, had it been pretty much any other player on the pitch, he could have been forgiven, but Salah's favoured foot is pretty famous right now.

In fact, the Egyptian set the record for most left-footed goals in a single Premier League season, eclipsing Robin van Persie.

His error was quickly picked up on Twitter and even Liverpool fans had a little giggle at Gerrard's expense.

Come on Stevie, sharpen up.

Salah has now scored 39 goals for the season, with one eye surely on beating Cristiano Ronaldo's Premier League era record of 42 in all competitions back in 2007/08.

Who'd have predicted the Roma man would have had such an impact in back in English football? Only a select few. The PFA Player of the Year award awaits.
