Spectators of the Liverpool vs. Manchester City showdown tonight have taken to social media in sheer numbers to react to Mohamed Salah’s surprising latest goal and overall display.
De Bruyne has the last laugh
Of course, the weekend’s Premier League game was played recently.
The showdown in question saw Liverpool host champion Man City at Anfield, for a clash at the top of the table.
Both sides went to the proceedings knowing that a three-point shot would take them away from Chelsea at the top of the division, to take an early lead in the international break.
However, when all was said and done, the champions of the last two seasons could not be separated.
A captivating 90 minutes in Merseyside eventually turned into a 2-2 draw, courtesy of one of the games (or more specifically, halves) of the Premier League season.
After Sadio Mane opened the scoring at the hour mark, City soon struck back, courtesy of a pinpoint effort from the superb Phil Foden:
️ “What a player he is!”
Phil Foden is back against Liverpool!
Shocking blow from Foden, after a brilliant career from Gabriel Jesus!

However, Liverpool soon regained the advantage once again, and in an absolutely impressive way.
After collecting the ball on the edge of the visitor area, Mohamed Salah somehow managed to push his way past no less than three City defenders, to pick the far corner with poise:

But Pep Guardiola’s Citizens simply refused to accept defeat.
This ultimately resulted in Kevin De Bruyne reestablishing parity once again just within the final ten minutes at Anfield, driving home a left-foot effort from 18 yards, with more than a little help from a Joel Matip deflection.
Is Salah the Prem the best?
Yet as described above, despite a vibrant second half and a host of stellar performances, it’s the name of a man who has firmly stolen headlines Sunday night.
The player in question? Mohamed Salah.
Egyptian Salah was at his best once again against City, sporting a threat every time he got into the ball, courtesy of the touch, the pace and the sheer frankness.
In turn, it came as no surprise when it was he who advanced Sadio Mane’s first goal with a perfect one-inch pass.
However, Salah didn’t end there, adding his own name to the roster shortly thereafter with a true contender for Goal of the Season.
And viewers of tonight’s action, as a result, have not been shy about getting their opinions heard on social media, amid widespread claims that the former Roma has once again established himself as the best. Premier League player:
SALAH IS THE BEST AND THE MOST COMPLETE PLAYER IN THE ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE. END OF.

As usual Liverpool-City lived up to their potential and were an instant classic. Some fantastic individual performances, but the Man of the Match was the best player in the Premier League right now and one of the best in Europe. Mo Salah is simply unavoidable. https://t.co/5EMgWywHhr
