Some Liverpool supporters have heaped praise on Mohamed Salah after he bagged the defining goal during the club’s 3-1 win over Southampton in the Premier League on Friday night.
The Reds found themselves 1-0 within the ninth minute of the game, but they managed to level the scores through Naby Keita’s maiden goal for the club before the halfway mark.
In the second period, the Reds looked the only side, who could secure the three points, and they managed to do so in sublime fashion after a stunning counter-attack orchestrated by Salah himself.
The Egypt international robbed the possession of the ball from the Reds half to produce a stellar solo run, which was eventually converted into the winning strike with plenty of composure.
Club-captain Jordan Henderson came off the bench to score the club’s third and final goal of the game, but the faithful were particularly delighted with Salah, who had gone eight successive matches without scoring.
Here are some of the best tweets;

50 up for that man Mo Salah.
The speed, the direct run, the use of Firmino’s decoy run, the finish.
It’s vintage Salah. pic.twitter.com/Fb9KezVB5K

With the strike, Salah bagged his 50th Premier League goal for the Reds, and he became the fastest to achieve the feat for the side after surpassing Fernando Torres’ previous record, which was achieved from 72 games.
Meanwhile, the Reds have once more jumped to the top of the league standings with a two-point advantage over Manchester City, and they will be hoping that the Citizens can slip up with the game in hand to enhance their prospects of winning a maiden Premier League title.
