Mohamed Salah Produces Incredible First Touch, Turn And Shot Vs Newcastle

Mohamed Salah gave another reminder of his world-class quality with a dazzling early goal to give Liverpool the lead against Newcastle.

Inside the first four minutes of Saturday's early kick-off, Sadio Mane's cross was nodded high into the air by defender Ciaran Clark. Salah - with his back to goal - controlled the ball brilliantly, lost his marker, swivelled and hammed the ball high into the net.

It was absolute fluid perfection from the Egyptian ace, as he showcased his skill, then his lethal finishing - giving the goalkeeper no chance.

It put Liverpool into a 1-0 lead at Anfield in a match the home side urgently need three points in as they battle for a top-four spot.

It was also Salah's 20th Premier League goal of the season, putting him just one behind Harry Kane in the rave for the Golden Boot.

Liverpool have struggled this season as their form went through a spectacular dip at the start of 2021. But the 28-year-old Salah has remained a goal threat throughout the season as he's now just one strike away from 30 goals in all competitions.

The Reds held their early lead over Steve Bruce's side after 25 minutes - but with post teams having chances in a lively start to the game.

If Liverpool hold on for the win, it will put Jurgen Klopp's side back into the top four (but having played a game more than Chelsea and West Ham).

Newcastle started the day eight points above Fulham and the relegation places.
