Salah 'on his way' to earning Lionel Messi comparisons - Liverpool boss Klopp

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes comparisons between Mohamed Salah and Barcelona's five-time Ballon d'Or victor Lionel Messi are premature, but that the Egyptian is on his way to one day becoming the best player in the world.

Check out the full team below.

The 25-year-old's struggles with Chelsea four years ago are a distant memory and Salah etched his name in the Liverpool history books in the 43rd minute with a close-range finish from Andrew Robertson's cross.

Following the stunning display from the Egyptian winger, Jurgen Klopp was asked about the current level Salah is at as he now leads the PL scoring charts with 28 goals and is the highest scoring Liverpool player ever in a debut season at Anfield with 36 in all competitions.

In the 77th minute, Salah became the first Egyptian player to score a hat-trick in the Premier League - bamboozling three of Watford's defenders and finishing into the bottom corner as he fell to the floor.

"I don't believe that City have always been superior to other clubs this season in the Premier League - despite what everyone says".

"His goals are so important for us". We know Manchester City well and they know us too.

What Truex had, however, was a faster race vehicle and with 32 laps to go, Busch wobbled, Truex shot past and into the lead. He also accomplished the feat at Las Vegas and Chicagoland during his championship 2017 season.

"The fact he has so many assists (nine in the Premier League) shows he is bringing more than just his goals".

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 ideal start. "He helps us a lot, the boys love playing with him, he loves playing with them, so it's good".

There are various ways of measuring the jaw-dropping impact that Mohamed Salah is having at Liverpool, but one message in particular scribbled on his first souvenir match ball served to encapsulate his feats succinctly.

Watford did not cause any major threat to the Reds defence but there was a little scare when the Hornets playmaker Roberto Pereyra whipped in a free-kick hitting the crossbar and going out of play. I think that's quite exceptional and another good performance.

Now Mohamed Salah has made another bold statement, saying Liverpool can win the Premier League next season.

And he capped off a brilliant personal performance in the dying seconds, thrashing into the roof of the net after Karnezis had fumbled Danny Ings' shot.
