Mohamed Salah scored four as Liverpool returned to third place in the Premier League table with a 5-0 victory over Watford at Anfield on Saturday evening.
The Egyptian opened the scoring with just four minutes gone with another fine solo effort to add to his ever-growing collection.
Salah netted a second just prior to the break, benefitting from Andy Robertson’s precise delivery from the left to tap home from close range.
Roberto Firmino got in on the scoring act shortly after the intermission when he backheeled in a cross.
Salah wrapped up his treble – his first hat-trick for the Reds – on 77 minutes, nudging the ball home after twisting and turning inside the box.
And he wasn’t done there, as he lashed in a fourth after Danny Ings had been foiled by a save from Orestis Karnezis to put the seal on a commanding victory.
With the other teams in the top six not in league action, the result moved Jurgen Klopp’s side back ahead of Tottenham Hotspur and into third place in the standings.
