Amazing Goals

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.

Samuel Umtiti was the standout performer in Barca’s defense, and although Chelsea twice struck the woodwork, the 3-0 victory on the night was well deserved for the La Liga leaders.
