You’ll Need A Napkin To Watch Mo Salah’s Filthy Backheel Nutmeg Goal
Mohamed Salah is starting to catch fire. The second Mo Salah goal vs Watford on Saturday may have been his best yet.
The Egyptian wonder had a goal and an assist against Bournemouth last weekend and a goal against RB Salzburg in the Champions League during the week. Salah scored twice in Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Watford at Anfield that sent the Reds 10 points ahead of second-place Leicester City.
Salah’s first was a beauty in its own right. The winger who highly favors his left foot showed he can also score curlers with his right to open the scoring in the 38th minute.
It was the second Mo Salah goal vs Watford that we’re still trying to wrap our heads around.
Making a quick adjustment to a shanked shot from Divock Origi, Salah nutmegged a defender and beat the keeper with one deft flick of his heel to seal the win.
Salah now has nine goals in 14 Premier League appearances to go with four more in the Champions League. Four of those 13 goals have come in the last week, so the Egyptian is clearly reaching peak form after a bit of a slow start by his high standards.
Liverpool increased its lead atop the Premier League table as Leicester was held to a 1-1 draw with Norwich.
