More importantly, they are now seven points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea in the tussle for the top four and Champions League qualification.

Jordan Henderson has likened "unbelievable" Mohamed Salah to Luis Suarez, stating the Egyptian lifts the Liverpool crowd in the same way the latter did before leaving for Barcelona, as reported by Goal.

"Messi has been doing what he's been doing for what feels like 20 years or so".

Pictured: Liverpool's Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Salah celebrates scoring the team's fourth goal during the English Premier League football match between Liverpool and Watford at Anfield in Liverpool, England, on March 17, 2018.

Salah scored four goals against Watford on Saturday evening to build a comfortable cushion at the top of the Premier League's goalscoring charts, but Klopp admitted after the game that he had not anticipated his star man would adopt a central role in his attack - only realising in pre-season training.

Liverpool, who needed a positive response after losing to Manchester United last week, went off the boil for much of the first half but Salah tapped in Andy Robertson's cross close to halftime to move past the 33 goals scored by Fernando Torres in his first season at Anfield in 2007-08.

"You've got to have good anticipation against him, if you haven't he will just do you, he'll set you up". You know when you are walking out there are so many goals out there for you.

'They are both fantastic players in their own right and you can't compare them.

"They are both very important for their team, so it's fair enough that one of those two would win it. They all showed their quality in different ways". He has outscored Messi despite attempting 78 fewer shots. But players are always the most important element in a game.

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.

Salah jinked his way past the helpless Jose Holebas before slotting past Orestis Karnezis on his weaker right foot to get Liverpool off to the flawless start.
