We are running out of words to describe this man.

All the build up to Liverpool’s Champions League clash with Roma was about Mo Salah.

And the new PFA Player of the Year lived up to his billing yet again with a truly breathtaking opening goal.

Try stopping him. Go on, it’ll prove futile.

Salah collected the ball on the right hand side of the Roma penalty area and curled a sumptuous strike in off the bar in the far corner.

How many times have we seen him do that this season?

The Roma defence, it has to be said, committed the cardinal sin of letting Salah cut in on his left foot.

Now a lot has been made about the concept of players celebrating against their former clubs this season, so what would Salah do against the side he left for £36m last summer?

Well, being the true gentleman that he is, he somehow contained his emotions given the circumstances and refused to show any sign of jubilation.

In a Champions League semi-final.

Just before half time Salah doubled Liverpool’s lead in similarly impudent style – and again he refused to celebrate.

It’s safe to say I’d probably be going full Ryan Giggs against Arsenal, running around like a topless mad man with my shirt flailing around my head.

Salah wasn’t finished there either, going onto set up both Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino for Liverpool’s third and fourth goals.

People joked about the Egyptian being a candidate for the Ballon d’Or, but on this evidence who’s laughing?
