Mo Salah apologised to Watford's goalkeeper after ruining his day

"That's how football should be, so I'm really happy with the performance", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said."For Mo to be involved in five goals is fantastic but to score four is even more fantastic".

Mohamed Salah can't stop scoring. But how it always in life, if you have the skills then you have to show it constantly. "The boys love playing together with him, and he loves playing with them".

He stated: "I am really happy about the result, of course, but also the performance because I knew after we made the analysis of Watford's last game, against Arsenal, how hard it can be to play them".

Salah was at his brilliant best at Anfield on the night, as he contributed with a quite staggering total of four goals to help Liverpool to another important victory.

What I'm saying is, yes, the individuals in this Liverpool team are playing great football, but the fact that they are playing their best football for each other is what's really starting to press my pants.

Watford offered little aside from a dipping free-kick from Roberto Pereyra when they were already 3-0 down.

Klopp said: "I'm really happy about the result and the performance in very hard circumstances".

And manager Javi Gracia admitted his side had been completely outclassed. Salah now has 28 goals compared to Harry Kane's 24, and with Kane currently out injured the former Roma and Chelsea forward looks certain to claim that award.

77 mins: He pokes the ball past Karnezis to score his hat-trick. "It will hurt him and it hurts us but we need to stop making it so hard for ourselves".

"He's a special player; he is special to watch and I think we on the pitch enjoy it as much as the fans do".

"We need to compete with the best 11 we can and it was not the best performance for us today".

He said: "Before the match I felt it but after conceding five goals, after the match, I'm not sure".

However, with a double-legged continental tie with Manchester City (April 4 and 10) looming large on the horizon, Klopp may be tempted to rest the German in a bid to ensure he's fully fit for their mammoth UEFA Champions League clash.
