Liverpool fans are adamant Mohamed Salah is the best player in the world on current form as he scored yet another sublime solo goal at Watford, as he continues his personal goal of the season competition. The Egyptian, who showed no signs of fatigue upon return from international duty, gave his incredible Manchester City wonder goal a run for its money with another piece of Lionel Messi-esque brilliance at Vicarage Road.
Salah was in blistering form from the get-go as he terrorised left-back Danny Rose on the near side.
The former Tottenham man was rolled a number of times including the opener, when Salah laid the ball on a plate for Sadio Mane with a delightful cross-field pass with the outside of his boot.
Roberto Firmino then put Liverpool 3-0 to the good with a brace before Salah stole the show with a goal of the highest quality.
He used the same ball roll that started the mazy run against City to sell a number of Watford defenders, before he continued to jink and weave his way through the box.
While a third claimed Salah was the best the Premier League has ever seen: “Salah is better than any other player this premier league has seen.”
Another posted: “Salah is better than Messi. No question about it.”
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher is under no illusions that Salah is currently the best player in the world.
He tweeted: “Best player in the world right now @MoSalah #WATLIV.”

Ian Rush MBE agrees with his fellow Liverpool icon: “Mashallah @MoSalah The best!”
The goal was also the eighth consecutive match that Salah has score in.
It was a run that started way back in the 1-1 draw against Chelsea before further strikes against Leeds, AC Milan, Crystal Palace, Brentford, Porto, Man City and now the Hornets.
Firmino would add further gloss to the scoring by completing his hat-trick in stoppage time, tapping home from close range as Neco Williams put the ball across the face of goal
