Mohamed Salah has made an electrifying start to life at Liverpool, with the Egyptian already finding the net 10 times in 16 appearances this season.
It was easy not to get too carried away when Salah joined the Reds in the summer, following a forgettable spell at Chelsea earlier in the decade.
Almost from minute one, however, Salah has looked a tremendous signing, and he is surely leading the way in the current Reds’ Player of the Year standings.
The 25-year-old scored the opener against Maribor on Wednesday night, as Jurgen Klopp‘s side won 3-0, and it was already his 10th strike in 2017/18.
The above video ranks Salah’s Liverpool goals thus far, and it is hard to have too many complaints with the countdown.
First up is his first ever competitive goal for the Reds, against Watford on the opening weekend. In truth, it was harder to miss than score.
Another poached effort follows, in the 7-0 annihilation of Maribor away from home, and his Anfield strike against Hoffenheim comes in at number eight.
The standard then picks up a little, with Salah’s cool finish in Maribor and a deflected shot against Sevilla taking us into the top-five.
The Egyptian’s inch-perfect, albeit slightly scuffed, strike against Tottenham is next up, and Wednesday’s clever finish against Maribor is at number four.
Salah’s brilliant back-post header takes home the bronze medal, and his excellent solo effort at home to Burnley just misses out on top spot.
First prize goes to the memorable goal at Anfield against Arsenal in August, when Salah raced half the length of the pitch to put Liverpool 3-0 up.
This video goes to show that Salah is something of a master when it comes to scoring ugly goals – something Dirk Kuyt was superb at, too.
You need players like this in your team, and although Liverpool’s summer recruit has missed his fair share of chances, his predatory instincts are part of what makes him one of the Reds’ key men.
