Liverpool were not at their best against Watford on Saturday but they still managed to come away with all three points.

The Reds have struggled in attack in recent weeks and Jurgen Klopp decided to try something new by putting Mohamed Salah up front and Roberto Firmino on the wing.

But, it looked as if it had not paid off as the two sides went into the break all square.

Liverpool were struggling to break down their opponents, but they finally took the lead when Salah scored his sixth goal of the season.

Trent Alexander-Arnold scored a sumptuous free-kick 12 minutes later to give Liverpool a two goal lead, before Firmino scored in the dying minutes to ensure Klopp's side ran out 3-0.

Sergio Ramos has bore the brunt of criticism from Liverpool fans ever since his foul on Salah in the Champions League final, and the feud between both camps was reignited by Dejan Lovren last month.

Understandably, you could forgive Salah for not having a very high opinion of the Spaniard.

It was his challenge that meant Salah left the Champions League final early in tears.

And, after scoring against Watford earlier on Saturday, some Liverpool fans think Salah deliberately copied Ramos' celebration.

Ramos is known for putting his hands together and holding up his fingers, which Salah did in celebrating his goal.

Watch it below:

And see how it compares to Ramos' celebration:

In all honesty, it does not look extremely similar.

And some Liverpool fans think that he was indeed copying Ramos.

There could be some other explanations, though.

Salah held up six fingers, which could represent the amount of goals he has now scored this season, or the amount of goals he's scored against Watford in his career.

Regardless of his motives, there's no doubt that Salah will have to explain his celebration.

What do you think? Was Salah copying Ramos' celebration here? Have your say by leaving a comment below.
