Salah's mesmerising first and third goals against Watford drew comparisons with Barcelona legend Lionel Messi. Pictured: Liverpool's Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Salah celebrates scoring the team's fourth goal during the English Premier League football match between Liverpool and Watford at Anfield in Liverpool, England, on March 17, 2018. "Salah, for a defender, has that frightful trait where you know what he is going to do and you can see what he wants to do but his feet are so quick and his skill is so great that it doesn't matter what you do: "you won't stop him", Lawrenson told the Liverpool-legend-Lawrenson-gives-verdict.html" Daily Mail.

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.

"Many times it is not so important what your plan is, no matter how hard you work on it, because a player like that can change it in an instant", Gracia said, as quoted on FourFourTwo.

Salah has been the fulcrum of Liverpool's successes this season both domestically and in the Champions League, with Jurgen Klopp's side sitting third in the Premier League, as well as being in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, where they face Manchester City.

The statement read: "We are proud that you belong to us". The more players score, the better.

Britos came out second best in the personal battle time and time again, with his direct opponent down the left scoring four goals and setting up the other in Liverpool's 5-0 win.

"They are different players. That is what happened with Salah", he added. "Sometimes you just can't do anything", Gracia explained.

There is one eye-catching statistic that could blow the whole debate wide open and begin to make people compare the Liverpool man to Messi. We have very good chemistry here at Liverpool. They have a high pressing level, higher level than Barcelona.
