Major architect of the success of Liverpool against Watford (5-0) with Firmino and dazzling since the start of the season, Mohamed Salah scored a



For his first on the bench at Watford, Claudio Ranieri had promised, before the meeting, to offer dinner to his players if they did not concede any goal, this Saturday afternoon, against Liverpool.

The former coach of Nantes, champion of England with Leicester in 2016, will ultimately not have to honor his promise, since his team was largely dominated by the Reds (5-0), provisional leaders of the Premier League, after eight days.

In this overwhelming success, Roberto Firmino, author of a hat-trick for his 250th tenure with Liverpool, and Sadio Mané shone.

By opening the scoring, the Senegalese international even reached the symbolic bar of 100 goals in the Premier League.

But it is his accomplice in the attack, Mohamed Salah, dazzling since the start of the season, who has written a little more the history of the championship with a new exceptional goal.

Ten goals, four assists and Drogba's record

Already at the origin of an assist - from an outside of the left - for Sadio Mané at the start of the match, the Egyptian striker completely played with the defense of Watford to register before the hour mark, in a number of dribbling worthy of Lionel Messi, one of the most beautiful goals of the season. Thanks to this achievement, the 29-year-old striker even equaled the record of Didier Drogba (104 goals), so far the most prolific African scorer in the history of the Premier League.

In the list of thirty nominated for the Ballon d'Or 2021, awarded next November, Mohamed Salah has regained his best level with Liverpool in recent weeks.

After eight days, the one who is already at ten goals and four assists, in all competitions, will try to continue his march forward, next Tuesday, in the group stage of the Champions League, against Atletico de Madrid.
