There is no one better than Mohamed Salah right now, not even Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, according to one former Liverpool player.
Messi stole the headlines on Tuesday night, as he scored a sensational goal for PSG against Manchester City, that even left pundits losing their minds.
However, in Portugal, Salah was continuing his excellent start to the season for Liverpool, as he scored twice in the Reds' 5-1 win over Porto.
The Egyptian forward now has eight goals in eight games for Jurgen Klopp's side this term and former Liverpool forward Dean Saunders believes no one is as good as Salah right now.
"Right now, as we speak, who’s better than him?" Saunders asked on talkSPORT, before basically answering himself.
"Eight goals in eight games from right-wing, he’s not playing down the middle. He just looks unstoppable
"There’s Messi and Ronaldo, who are on their own, but right now they’re not as good as Salah."

Messi's start in Paris hasn't been what many had hoped, though he's still only four games into his career in the French capital, including one game off the bench.
Ronaldo's return to Manchester United has started pretty well, with four goals in four games so far, although the team's results haven't quite lived up to standards.
Asked if he'd rather have Salah or Ronaldo in his team, Saunders added, "Right now, Salah.
"It’s easy to say Ronaldo, but right now Salah looks like he’s going to score every week."

Peter Crouch and Joe Cole also recently waxed lyrical about Salah, with the former Chelsea winger even comparing the 29-year-old to Messi.
Liverpool fans will hope the former Roma and Fiorentina forward will stick around for a while to come, with his contract due to expire in 2023.
The player reportedly wants around £500,000-a-week in order to stay beyond that point, when he'll be 31 but still likely one of the best in the world.
