Mo Salah Drops Miguel Britos Like Lionel Messi Dropped Jerome Boateng
Liverpool crushed Watford 5-0 on Saturday with Mohamed Salah leading the way with four goals and an assist for the Reds. Salah’s goals brought him to the top of the charts in both the Premier League and European Golden Boot races with 28 domestic strikes.
It’s ridiculously absurd, but Salah is now averaging MORE than a goal per game in the Premier League. On average, it’s taking the Egyptian only 85 minutes per goal in the EPL — a statistic that’s frankly implausible.
Salah also now has nine EPL assists, one more than Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen.
The win took Liverpool above Tottenham and into third, although Spurs maintain a game in hand. The victory also confirmed our suspicions that Liverpool-Manchester City will be the most gloriously attack-minded UCL quarterfinal of all-time.
