Mohamed Salah Drops His Shoulder, Ruins Marcos Alonso And Dinks It Over Edouard Mendy, It's Sheer Class

Mohamed Salah has proved time and time again this season that he is one of the best players in world football - and he produced another moment of brilliance against former club Chelsea on Sunday.

The Egyptian forward, who has scored 22 goals in 25 games in all competitions this season, was played through by Trent Alexander-Arnold in the 25th minute when he silenced the Stamford Bridge crowd.

He took the ball down with his right, dropped his shoulder to cut inside Marcos Alonso before beating Edouard Mendy with a wonderful left-footed finish at the near post. He just makes it look so easy.

It has been a quite remarkable half of football between two title contenders.

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane, who was arguably lucky to be on the pitch after a collision with Cesar Azpilicueta, opened the scoring after a mistake from Trevoh Chalobah in the ninth minute.

That man Salah made it 2-0 with the above goal but with few minutes left of the first-half, Mateo Kovacic scored one of the goals of the season before Christian Pulisic levelled the score.

It was end to end stuff from start to finish.


And breathe.
