Salah on Liverpool romp at Watford: We knew we needed to start on front foot

Mohamed Salah was delighted to score in Liverpool's 5-0 win at Watford.

Roberto Firmino netted a hat-trick and Salah scored another wonderful solo goal as Liverpool spoiled Claudio Ranieri's first game as Watford boss. Sadio Mane gave the Reds the lead with his 100th Premier League goal.

Salah later said: "I think we didn't want to start like the (Manchester) City game so we talked in dressing room about starting the game well and that's what we did.

"All the goals were very important but Bobby (Firmino) did a great job scoring a hat-trick so congratulations to him and Sadio (Mane) also scored a nice goal."

On his goal and where it ranks among his greatest strikes, he stated:"I didn't watch back it yet. Last game (against Man City) maybe (was better). I don't know which one was better.

"I was in the box trying to find someone or score myself. It is all about the team. that is the most important thing."

On whether he is in the best form of his career, Salah concluded: "I don't know. Sometimes I don't have the luck to score goals but I am always trying 100% to help the team. I am confident at the moment, helping the team win points which is the most important thing."
