Mohamed Salah: Liverpool star analyses his wonder goals vs Man City and Watford

Mo Salah analysed his goals vs Watford and Man City

Mohamed Salah has been in scintillating form for Liverpool in the 2021/22 season.

The Egyptian forward has already scored 15 goals in just 12 games for the Reds this campaign.

The month of October saw him score two wonder goals in the Premier League.

On October 3, against Manchester City, Salah beat a number of players before producing a superb finish from a tight angle with his right foot.

He scored another cracker against Watford 13 days later.



Salah showed some incredible feet to keep the ball inside Watford’s box, floored a defender with a fake shot and then produced a fine finish with his favoured left foot.

The 29-year-old recently spoke to Optus Sport where he analysed both of those goals.

“My action just came natural because every time I had the ball and went one-vs-one, the crowd was going ‘wheyyyyy’.

“The sound was unbelievable at Anfield and the fans were so excited.

“The first touch was the most important thing. My plan is to take the left-back in my back and just hold the ball. Or, if he comes quick, just try to hold him and go the other side and face the centre-back after that.

“When I get the ball here, Bernardo [Silva] was on the ground and I go in and beat [Aymeric] Laporte. I was so excited because the fans was like ‘yeahhhhhh!’

“Once the goal was in it was unbelievable.”

“When I got inside the box everyone was asking for the ball. If you play in the street, you do that. if you don’t play in the street, you wouldn’t do that.

“Once I dribbled past the first one, it was like exactly the same feeling as the Man City goal.

“I cut in, because I knew the centre-back was going to think I was going to do it like against City.

“That’s a nice feeling. When you see the ball going inside the net. But after it did that, I don’t want to see someone to save it on the line or something. You see the fans so excited. That’s what makes the goal even better.”
