Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp hailed Mohamed Salah’s superb form after his two goals inspired the Reds to a comfortable 3-0 home win over Southampton on Saturday.
The 25-year-old Egyptian international took his tally to 14 goals in all competitions with a brace in the first half of the Premier League clash, before Philippe Coutinho added a third just after the hour.
Salah joined Liverpool from Roma in June but has already underlined his worth with a top flight-leading nine league goals in an impressive start to life at Anfield.
No player in the club’s history has more goals than Salah after their first 12 Premier League appearances, after he who eclipsed Robbie Fowler’s tally of eight.
“He is in a good moment,” said Klopp.
“It’s good for us, good for us. The first goal, the ball was away and we fought back somehow.
“That is not a real chance from there, I would say. It was a fantastic goal.
“The second goal? Fantastic play. What a pass.
“I’m pretty sure Philippe Coutinho has played a few passes like this in his life but it is not often you get it in the box and someone is not offside. That is quite rare I would say.”
