After a great game against Man City, his manager called the Liverpool player one of the best footballers in the world.
Mohamed Salah’s magic two moments after a 2-2 draw with Manchester City on Sunday have confirmed Liverpool will remain the only unbeaten side in the Premier League this season.
For 45 minutes, City’s combined brilliance threatened to blow up the Reds and the first league defeat at Anfield in front of fans since 2017.
However, for all the beautiful football made up of Pep Guardiola’s creative midfielders, the English champions can’t call the league a clinical finisher like Salah.
After Joao Cancello was outscored, the Egyptian turned his game around when he scored Liverpool’s opening goal for Sadio Mane with a perfectly heavy pass.
But it was the last for the second on his side that will live on in the memory for a long time.

Cancello left one of the four City defenders behind at this point as Salah Phil Faden and Bernardo Silver slipped out of focus before turning to Imeric Laport and shooting Ederson in his weak right leg.
“Only the best players in the world score goals like this,” said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp. “Absolutely exceptional. Because this club never forgets anything, people will still talk about this goal in 50 to 60 years when they remember this game.
Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne’s late deflected shot saved a point for Guardiola’s men, but Salah’s goal stole the show.

Salah has now scored in seven consecutive games and played nine games this season, reminiscent of his 44-goal debut season at Anfield in 2017-18.
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher told Sky Sports: “The sharper he is at the moment and the better I’ve seen him. “I do not see anyone in the world playing well at the moment. His record and his start to the season was remarkable. ”

Even Guardiola praised the 299-year-old and called him “the best winger.” [Premier] The league has never seen. “
“I have never seen anything like it,” said Pep Guardiola. He has to be the best winger in the league and the best player in the world right now. No one like him is doing it. ”#LiveMCI #Pep #Mosalah #Pl pic.twitter.com/O8ffuog264

The goal was praised around the world by none other than NBA player LeBron James.

The result is an exciting lead in the Premier League title race, with Liverpool leaders one point behind Chelsea, and City in third place, two points at the top along with other clubs.
Salah’s current contract is set to expire in 20223, and the 229-year-old is known for his value to the club’s people as a new deal is being negotiated.
Liverpool have to be knocked out to extend Salah’s stay, but in this form he is valuable as the person who can win their league.
IMO if he was British or European he would have appreciated more, sorry but that’s true
