Liverpool rampaged past Watford at Anfield on Saturday with a comprehensive 5-0 victory that saw them move into third place in the Premier League.
With Spurs and Manchester United attending to FA Cup matters, Liverpool seized their chance to get a firmer grip on the Champions League places.
Mohamed Salah scored four of Liverpool’s five goals against the Hornets to take his tally to 36 goals this season in just 44 appearances.
The Egyptian forward has been in sensational form this season and Steven Gerrard hailed the forward as the best player in the Premier League right now.
Two of Salah’s finishes were spectacular solo efforts that seemed almost impossible and the Hornets defence must have been sick of the sight of him by the end of the game.
One man that was definitely tired of the former Chelsea man was Watford goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis.
At the end of the game, BT Sport caught Salah approaching the Greek goalkeeper with the match ball in his hands and he had to say something:

What a nice guy, huh? Scores four goals and then apologises about it! What a man.
Speaking after the game, Salah opened up about why he knew he had to come back to the Premier League after his failed spell with Chelsea.
“I have to thank everyone but mainly my teammates, without them I couldn’t reach this number,” Salah told BT Sport after the game. “Each game we try to win the three points, but every game I want to score and help the team. But today the most important thing is three points.
“We showed a god reaction after the last game. We had a good result and clean sheet — that’s most important.”
“In Chelsea I didn’t play, so I didn’t have my chances,” Salah said. “I said to all my friends, I think I said it on many interviews as well, that I wanted to come back.
“I like the Premier League I lot. I feel it has my style of football. I like to play [in] the Premier League.
“I said since day one here that I’m happy here at Liverpool and I want to show my football here. If you look at me now and five years ago, everything has changed — mentally, physically… everything.”
