Mo Salah's First Touch Against FC Porto Was Utterly Disgusting
Mohamed Salah wasn't able to add to his 32 goals tally last season but he did produce the touch of dreams in the game against FC Porto in the Champions League last night.
With Liverpool already 5-0 up from the first leg, Jurgen Klopp rested his main man for the second leg at Anfield - clearly having one eye on the trip to play Manchester United at Old Trafford at the weekend.
The Egyptian was brought on in the 74th minute though and despite not been able to give the home fans something to celebrate, he left them salivating at the mouth with a glorious first contribution.
Dejan Lovren sprayed the ball about 40/50 yards across the pitch to Salah on the right. His touch had to be perfect and it was; the former Roma man bringing the ball wonderfully as if it was stuck to his feet.

It was a pretty tame night at Anfield but that touch from Salah will have been worth the admission fee alone. He continues to dazzle on a weekly basis, and Reds fans will be hoping he's on song against United on Saturday.
