Mohamed Salah struck four times in rampant Liverpool’s 5-0 thrashing of Watford that lifted them back into third spot in the Premier League on Saturday.
The unstoppable Egyptian needed only four minutes to put his side in front and he doubled his tally just before halftime.
He set up Roberto Firmino for a cheeky effort early in the second half before placing a shot through a crowd of Watford defenders to complete his first Liverpool hat-trick.
There was no respite for Watford at a snowy Anfield as Salah smashed in his fourth goal in the 85th minute.
Salah’s majestic display moved him four goals clear of Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane in the race for the Premier League’s Golden Boot with 28 and his 36 in all competitions is the most by a Liverpool player in a debut season for the club.
