Premier League: Mohamed Salah is indescribable, says Liverpool teammate Joe Gomez Mohamed Salah giving Liverpool confidence like Luis Suarez did, says Jordan Henderson

Which superstar player scores absurd goals with his left foot, dominates the scoring charts, routinely leaves defenders on their backsides and is worth his weight in gold to his team?

Liverpool paid Roma £34million to sign Salah last summer in a deal which is widely regarded as a bargain now following Neymar's world record £198m move to Paris Saint-Germain. He is special to watch and I think we on the pitch enjoy it as much as the fans do.

The 25-year-old will need to find this consistency to his game over the next few years before a real comparison begins, meaning that the debate between Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo should at least continue for a while longer.

The Egyptian midfielder, who just scored four goals against Watford on Saturday, now has three more for the season than his nearest challenger, Barcelona's Lionel Messi.

Liverpool are on the cusp of something special, and will look to challenge for the Premier League title next season.


Salah now leads the race for the Premier League golden boot with 28 goals - four more than second-placed Harry Kane. "But both teams are in this moment the best in Europe".

Asked what effect Salah, who also provided the assist for Roberto Firmino's audacious backheel through his legs for Liverpool's third on the night, has on the team Gomez said: "It is indescribable".

Salah, who is notably ahead of Messi in the race for the European Golden Boot with the Argentine now lagging three goals behind his league tally, is not the only one hard to stop, but Liverpool as a team as well, according to Gracia who rates the two sides as the best in Europe today.

The top-scoring player on this list, though his goals have come in the Portuguese Liga where a lower UEFA co-efficient means he earns only 1.5 points per goal, rather than two for goals in the "big five" leagues.

Despite Liverpool having one of the most potent front lines in European football, Jurgen Klopp is already looking at strengthening it according to reports. "They all showed their quality in different ways". Kevin De Bruyne, along with a number of his Manchester City team-mates, has been outstanding while Kane has also delivered with remarkable consistency.
