Mohamed Salah's wondergoal against Manchester City provoked a brilliant reaction from Liverpool teammate Virgil van Dijk, captured in a new video.

Salah scored a goal of the season contender in his side's thrilling 2-2 draw with Man City last weekend.

He weaved his way through several defenders then fooled Aymeric Laporte before smashing home with his right foot.

Liverpool have since uploaded a stunning video of Salah's goal in 'every angle' and it shows Van Dijk's fantastic on-field reaction.

The Dutch defender raised his arms in shock when the Egyptian forward found the back of the net.

Still in disbelief, he turned and faced the bench trying to work out what had just happened in a moment of magic.

Jamie Carragher hailed 'world class' Salah following his heroic performance - which also saw him set up his team's opening goal - and says the club must tie him down to a new contract.

Speaking on Sky Sports after the match, he said: "I don't think there's anyone playing better in the world or in Europe at the moment.

"His record at the start of this season has been absolutely outstanding.

"You can never really question him for what he's done at Liverpool - if at all - but right now is as probably as sharp and as good as I've ever seen him.

"His finish was world-class and he is world-class.

"I said this over the last couple of weeks - he is one of the greatest players to play for Liverpool. The club have lost Roger Hunt in the last few days, one of the greatest goalscorers the club has ever seen."

Carragher added: "Mo Salah is one of them, in terms of Ian Rush, Roger Hunt... Mo Salah is up there. He goes into a Liverpool greatest XI.

"You think of the greatest players Liverpool have had - he goes on that right side, there's absolutely no doubt about it.

"I know the situation Liverpool are in. They don't have the finances of Manchester City when you think of the wages they give out. But right now, Salah is playing as well as anyone in European football.

"Liverpool cannot afford to let his contract situation drag on, with the threat they could lose him in the next two years.

"This is a guy who really looks after himself, and you can see that when he takes his top off when he scores a goal.

"I'm not saying he's going to be like Cristiano Ronaldo when he's 35 or 36, still topping the goalscoring charts, but I think this lad's got a lot in him as he goes into his 30s.

"It's imperative that at his peak he's still scoring goals in the red shirt of Liverpool."
