Why Mohamed Salah can't be compared to Lionel Messi: Watford boss explains

Lawrence Lyons, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: "Mo Salah's performances continue to catch the eye and the goal frenzy against Watford means the Premier League record of Alan Shearer and Andy Cole is now within his reach".

While the gameplan for most sides that face Liverpool would be to shut down Salah, Gracia claims the former Roma man is similar to Messi in that even the best gameplan can be undone by their brilliance.

The Reds were 5-0 winners against Watford at Anfield in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

Check out FC Yahoo's reasons for putting Salah and Messi on the same pedestal-and be sure to leave your thoughts below the line.

Having served Sadio Mane with a goal on a plate in the 4-1 victory over West Ham, Andrew Robertson did exactly the same thing last time out when his surgically precise pass met Mohamed Salah on the far post for an easy tap in from the Egyptian for his second goal of the game.

Bayern's Poland worldwide has been a fixture on the list in recent seasons and a hat-trick against Hamburg took him to 100 Bundesliga goals for the club.

"I don't believe that City have always been superior to other clubs this season in the Premier League - despite what everyone says", said Salah, who has scored 36 goals for Liverpool this season.

Firmino's 23rd of the season marked the best goalscoring campaign of his career, beating the 22 he managed in 2013-14, and while Mane did not get on the scoresheet it was another performance which showed he is starting to rediscover the form of past year. With 7 (or twelve, depending on who you ask) games left, he's on track to rise to the heights of Liverpool's most prolific goalscorer - Ian Rush. He plays off the right and those little steps he takes - it looks like he is shuffling at high speed sometimes - have inflicted huge damage.

"He's a special player; he is special to watch and I think we on the pitch enjoy it as much as the fans do".

"They are really good", Wijnaldum said "Sometimes, you know, they get the credit because they are scoring the goals and make it really hard for teams, but there are more players who help them to accelerate so they can perform, and a lot of people forget that others do the dirty work so they can attack".

Just imagine if you could have scored a handful of those big chances he's missed this season.

While speculating that Spanish giants Real Madrid could be interested in Salah, Wright wrote in The Sun: "I've a disgusting feeling that, as far as Liverpool and Klopp are concerned, they will have another Philippe Coutinho situation on their hands sooner rather than later".

"We have great players in English football, it's hard to select one as the outright best".
