'Mo Has Morphed Into Messi': Salah's Stunning Goal Against Watford Leaves Fans Spellbound
Fans, pundits, and even former footballers were left awestruck by Salah as the Egyptian genius delivered a stunning strike against Watford at Vicarage Road.
While a commentator on the Sky Sports network dubbed Salah's act as "beyond belief", England legend Gary Linekar claimed that the Egyptian has "morphed into Messi".
On the other hand, a few declared him the "best footballer on the planet", while others dubbed him as a "genius" who is "at the peak of his powers".

He's done it and he's done it in style. One of the great Premier League goals. Mohamed Salah has equalled Didier Drogba's record of 104 Premier League goals. It has taken 88 less games for Mohamed Salah to equal Drogba's record. The best player on the planet.— DaveOCKOP (@DaveOCKOP) October 16, 2021
The Mohamed Salah goal of the season competition is hotting up. A genius operating at the absolute peak of his powers. Keeps on making the magical look ridiculously easy.— James Pearce (@JamesPearceLFC) October 16, 2021
He first produced an unbelievable goal against Premier League champions Manchester City earlier this month.
Although Salah's goal hogged all the limelight in their clash against Watford, it wasn't the only good news for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.
Besides Salah's audacious strike, Sadio Mane's eighth minute goal and Roberto Firmino's hat-trick eventually powered them to a dominant 5-0 win.
With the triumph, Liverpool went on to occupy the second spot in the Premier League table with 18 points. Chelsea are on top with 19 points.
