"Congrats to the King" - Liverpool squad hail Mohamed Salah after Watford masterclass

The two sides played out a 3-3 thriller at Vicarage Road earlier in the season

The Portuguese global described Salah as "one of the best footballers in the world" after he took his tally for the season to 36 in all competitions with four goals against Watford.

Liverpool record-breaker Mohamed Salah is well on his way to beat the likes of FC Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi to the European Golden Shoe this season.

The star forward was at his brilliant best again when the Reds took on Watford at home on Saturday; Salah scored four times and overcame Harry Kane and Lionel Messi in terms of leading the goalscoring charts across Europe.

Asked about the similarities in Salah and Messi's style of play, Klopp said: "Mo is on the way, that's good". Many believe that due to Manchester City's dominance, it'll be Kevin De Bruyne who wins player of the year, but with Salah carrying on with his incredible performances while Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and the team thrives with and around him, it's hard to deny his case for the award, whether it's the players or media that select him as the top performer of 2017-2018.

"Yes, Mo is on a fantastic way - that's for sure". As it always is in life, if you have to have the skills you have to show that constantly and consistently, and he is very good.

Putin is expected to easily win a presidential election on Sunday which would take him to almost a quarter of a century in power. Opposition lawmakers are calling on the government to clamp down on the illicitly gained money of wealthy Russians in Britain.

Fresh off scoring his first Liverpool hat trick, Mo Salah revels in the Reds' rout of Watford, a week after a disappointing defeat at Man United. "He helps us a lot, the boys love playing with him, he loves playing with them, so it's good".

"If you see my goals and everything I did in my last four or five years, every year is better than the year before".

Salah has produced some outstanding performances since joining Liverpool from Roma last summer, with the winger having scored 32 goals across all competitions, 24 of which have come in the top flight.

"If the question is what I think about that then I think that's quite exceptional", Klopp said.
