Aside his brace, Salah who is among the nominees for the CAF Player of the Year prize had three shots and created three chances for his team-mates.

However, Everton battled back through Oumar Niasse, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Leighton Baines to earn maximum points.

It was the first time since 1994 since Everton have managed to pull off the feat in the English Premier League.
