Fuelled by his impressive performance this season, Mohamed Salah laid a huge one, in the form of a brace, as Liverpool spanked AS Roma 5-1 at Anfield.
The forward got a first-half brace and set up goals for Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino as the Reds take a three-goal lead to Italy ahead of the Champions League semi-final return leg.
The highlight of the evening saw him break Ian Rush’s record by scoring in no less than 32 games this season, the most ever for a Reds player in a single campaign.
Also, his 10-goal haul this season is the most by a Liverpool player in a single season in European competition. It was the type of performance that left football on twitter salivating for more.
It doesn't matter whether you're a Chelsea, United, City or even Arsenal fan, you have to acknowledge and appreciate how good Mohamed Salah is. — Adnaan (@Yung__Naan) April 24, 2018
Im sorry I never imagined Salah was capable of this when he was at Roma. He has truly developed into a sensation at Liverpool and under Klopp. As for Firmino, wow! — Mina Rzouki (@Minarzouki) April 24, 2018
Every time we take Salah off the pitch we get pushed back. Mane needs to find his mojo. He just motored through that game for me. — KopAce (@KopAce74) April 24, 2018
