'We've beaten them' - Salah and Liverpool have no fear of City

More importantly, it was his excellent cross across the face of goal that allowed Salah to score his 2nd goal of the game, as he marauded down the left flank before unleashing the ideal ball to the incoming Egyptian.

The attacker, who joined the Anfield outfit in the summer from AS Roma, secured his first ever hat-trick for the club in the 77 minute before adding his fourth with five minutes remaining, taking him to 36 goals across all competitions.

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard believes "we are witnessing the start of greatness".

Egyptian football sensation and Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah has been crowned the top scorer in Europe's top five leagues for the 2017/2018 season, overtaking football legend Lionel Messi with a four goal difference (28-24). The Portuguese worldwide described Salah as "one of the best footballers in the world" after he took his tally for the season to 36 in all competitions with four goals against Watford. Having scored the opening two goals, Salah then turned provider by breaking clear down the right and cutting back to cross from the byline.

The defeat leaves Watford 11th in the Premier League table.

The former Chelsea player, who arrived at Anfield from Roma past year, is just three away from Suarez's total of 31 league goals in a single season.

The winger also helped guide Egypt to their first World Cup finals in over a quarter of a century when he netted a 95th-minute penalty in a 2-1 win over Congo.

With the help of Salah's goals, Liverpool are competing for a second-place finish in the Premier League while finding themselves in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

43 mins: Salah taps in a cross from the left from Robertson on the stroke of half-time.

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

Deldude: Phenomenal. That is how to describe Mo Salah.
