While it was no surprise to see Mohamed Salah on the scoresheet for Liverpool during their 4-0 victory against Brighton, the other three goalscorers were slightly less expected.
Both Dominic Solanke and Andrew Robertson grabbed their first goals for the club in the second-half after Dejan Lovren had made it 2-0 with his first Premier League goal at Anfield for Liverpool.
It was Lovren’s goal that eased any lingering concerns around Anfield.
Salah had put the Reds ahead and, with Liverpool only needing a draw to guarantee Champions League qualification, Lovren all but settled it with his header in the 40th-minute.
While the defender finding the net was a shock, his celebration was also rather interesting.
He stood in front of the Kop with his arms outstretched, taking all the plaudits.
It’s a celebration we’ve seen from Salah on numerous occasions this season and it was rather humorous seeing the Croat emulate it.
SALAH WANTS ANSWERS FROM LOVREN
But it seems Salah wasn’t too impressed.
He wrote a message to his teammate on Instagram asking: “Can you explain @dejanlovren??????,” accompanied with a split-screen image of the pair doing the exact same celebration.
But Lovren had a rather brilliant answer.
He wrote back saying: “Copied? No way. I just didn’t had the chance to score earlier.”
Well, you can’t argue with that.
Of course, Lovren certainly isn’t the first Liverpool player to ‘copy’ a teammate’s celebration.
Sadio Mane has a growing reputation of doing just that and has been seen mimicking Roberto Firmino’s kung-fu kick on a regular occasion this season.
