Liverpool manager says Salah can pass Messi

Liverpool manager says Salah can pass Messi

Having scored four goals against Watford at Anfield on Saturday to continue a sensational season, there have been no shortages of plaudits for the Egyptian - who joined Liverpool last summer from Italian side Roma.

But according to Klopp, the 25-year-old Egyptian is focused on his own game.

"I think Mo is on the way", manager Jurgen Klopp said when asked how close his talisman is to being one of the world's best players.

"That's good. I don't think Mo wants or anybody wants to be compared with Lionel Messi. We have to hope they all come back well from the internationals". Fresh off scoring his first Liverpool hat trick, Mo Salah revels in the Reds' rout of Watford, a week after a disappointing defeat at Man United.

It was eerily reminiscent of a goal Messi scored against Bayern Munich in the 2015 Champions League semi-final, when he left Jerome Boateng sprawled on the turf.

Palace's first win in eight league games leaves them two points above the bottom three. "The boys love playing together with him".

He is also a five-time Ballon d'Or victor.

It is the middle of March, and Salah on 36 goals, has already surpassed the top hauls of Fernando Torres (33) and Luis Suarez (31) at Liverpool.

Russia Expels 23 UK Diplomats In Retaliatory Move
Britain is expelling 23 Russian diplomats and taking other steps against Russian interests as the two nations' relations plummet. Britain's foreign secretary accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of personally ordering the poisoning of the Skripals.

Liverpool sensation Mohamed Salah insisted the Reds do not fear runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City ahead of their blockbuster Champions League tie. Scores four goals and then apologises about it!

It took Salah just four minutes to set that straight.

43 mins: Salah taps in a cross from the left from Robertson on the stroke of half-time. Firmino ran onto the ball and brilliantly flicked it between his legs to score at the near post.

There was no stopping Salah in the second half, either, as he completed his hat-trick to take his tally to 35 for the season, before weighing in with his fourth of the game to make it 5-0. And it truly is the irrepressible winger who is the difference in Liverpool's prospects this season.

"They have to keep their feet on the ground. All the big clubs in Europe will be looking at him". He also assisted Roberto Firmino's goal - the only other goal of the game.

"In Chelsea I didn't play, so I didn't have my chances", Salah said.

Deldude: Phenomenal. That is how to describe Mo Salah. Capitalizing some great work from Mané on the wing, the forward wriggling away from four Watford defenders in that inimitable way of his before somehow scuffling past Karnezis yet again to the joy of the Kop. The guy is absolutely lit.
