Liverpool fans felt Mohamed Salah wasn’t clinical enough at the start of the season.
Well now the Egyptian winger is the top scorer in the Premier League and has more goals than Lionel Messi and Neymar this season.
Salah was at it again on Wednesday night, coming off the bench to score twice as Liverpool comfortably saw off Stoke 3-0.
Sadio Mane opened the scoring in the first half before Salah scored a quick fire brace to make sure of all three points for the Reds.
But Liverpool supporters held special praise for a man who didn’t find the net.
Roberto Firmino’s unselfishness is one of his main and most endearing attributes, and the Brazilian displayed that quality again for Mane’s goal.
With Mane’s delicate chip only tricking over the line, Firmino had the opportunity to steal the goal himself – but instead stopped to allow his team-mate to score instead.
