Liverpool 5–0 Watford

Premier League, Anfield
March 17, 2018

Goals: Salah 4′, 43′, 77′, 85′, Firmino 49′

It was all about proving defeat at Old Trafford was nothing more than a minor speed bump, and the Reds did that with a Salah-inspired win over the Hornets.

Salah’s brilliant solo effort for his 33rd goal of the season put Jurgen Klopp’s side ahead, before the Egyptian tapped in for his 34th just before half-time to double the lead.

Shortly after the restart Roberto Firmino added a third to wrap up the victory, turning home Salah’s cross with a magnificent back-heel at the Kop end.

The Egyptian put the icing on the cake as he netted his 35th and his first Reds hat-trick, slaloming through the Watford back line and rolling into the net.

But Salah wasn’t finished yet as he incredibly added a fantastic fourth lashing home from close-range on a truly memorable evening.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the win across social media and on our forums, with huge praise coming for one man in particular.
