Salah makes history as Liverpool run riot against Watford

Mohamed Salah scored his 104th Premier League goal to equal the all-time African goalscoring record in the league as Liverpool trashed Watford 5–0 at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

The Egyptian produced a sublime performance for the Reds, first assisting Sadio Mane for the opening goal with a delicious pass. Mane would finish with finesse to register his 100th goal in the Premier League.

The Senegalese is now second on the all-time scorers list of Africans in the EPL behind Salah and Didier Drogba, who are joint top.

Brazil’s Firmino doubled Liverpool’s lead before scoring the third in the 52nd minute, and two minutes later, Salah produced another moment of sheer brilliance to score Liverpool’s fourth – a wonderful solo effort.

Firmino would complete his hattrick in stoppage time to wrap up a dominant performance for the Reds, who are now top of the table.

For Watford however, it’s a fifth defeat in the league this season and first loss for new manager Claudio Ranieri.
