There was no respite for Watford at a snowy Anfield as the clinical Salah smashed in his fourth goal in the 85th minute - from his fourth shot on target. "That's how football should be, so I'm really happy with the performance", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said.
Mohamed Salah's goalscoring exploits this season are having a similarly positive impact at Liverpool to that of Luis Suarez had when the Uruguayan was at Anfield, according to club captain Jordan Henderson.
Following his marvelous four-goal performance against Watford that guided him to lead the Premier League top-scorers race with 28 goals, several pundits and coaches have compared the Egypt worldwide to the Argentinian star.
With his all action display against Watford that combined the handsome and the dogged, the brilliant and the belligerent, Salah - who, at his best, does everything but sell match day programmes - has now had his "Norwich moment" for Liverpool.
The Messi comparisons may be premature, but the simple existence of them says enough.
"Top, top player, scoring left and right, he's a handful".
'I know they score a lot of goals and both work hard off the ball but it is very difficult to make that comparison.
'Luis moved on to Barcelona and is doing fantastically well.
It's been quite a debut season for Salah and it's surely between the "Egyptian King" and Manchester City's Belgium superstar, Kevin de Bruyne for the Premier League player of the season.
'But Mo this season has been unbelievable.
Salah's goal tally in the league now stands at 28, just three behind the record of 34 scored in a single Premier League campaign.
With 36 goals in all competitions, meanwhile, he has matches Fowler's best-ever season, meaning the former Roma and Chelsea man needs just one more to become the highest Liverpool goalscorer in the Premier League era.
