Steven Gerrard praised Mohamed Salah for his one moment of class after Liverpool FC booked their place in the Champions League semi-finals courtesy of a 2-1 win at Manchester City.

The Egypt international moved to Liverpool FC in a £39m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma in the 2017 summer transfer window to bolster Jurgen Klopp’s attacking options ahead of the new campaign.

Salah got on the score sheet in Liverpool FC’s 3-0 victory over Manchester City at Anfield before he picked up an injury problem to miss the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park last weekend.

However, the African forward return to the Liverpool FC team at The Etihad on Tuesday night and the 25-year-old cancelled out Gabriel Jesus’ opener with a clinical finish in the second half.

Roberto Firmino scored his second goal of the Champions League quarter-final tie to seal Liverpool FC’s place in the last four.

Salah has now scored 39 times in 43 games in all competitions this season to help Liverpool FC reach the latter stages of the competition.

Former Liverpool FC captain Gerrard singled out Salah for special praise following his display at Manchester City.

“In terms of Salah, the audacious chip in a quarter-final second leg… to actually have the audacity to chip it and have that composure is scary really,” Gerrard told BT Sport.

“He didn’t do much else really. That’s all he needed. He didn’t get a kick all night really, but it was that one moment of class.”

Liverpool FC haven’t won the Champions League title since 2005 when the Reds beat AC Milan on penalties.
