Owen Hargreaves hails two Liverpool FC stars after 5-0 win over Watford
Owen Hargreaves has his say on Liverpool FC's third goal in their thumping 5-0 win over Watford
Owen Hargreaves lavished praise on both Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino following their sparkling performances in Liverpool FC’s 5-0 thrashing of Watford in the Premier League on Saturday.
Salah was in sensational form once again as he scored four of Liverpool FC’s goals to help the Reds bounce back from the disappointment of their 2-1 loss to Manchester United last weekend.
The Egypt international has now scored an amazing 28 goals in the Premier League this season and has also notched up nine assists for his team-mates in the top flight.
Salah also set up Firmino for Liverpool’s third goal shortly after half-time at Anfield on Saturday as Jurgen Klopp’s men ran riot in front of their home fans in the top-flight fixture.
And former Manchester United midfielder Hargreaves was hugely impressed by what he saw from Salah and Firmino as the pair inspired Liverpool FC to victory on Saturday night.
Speaking during BT Sport’s coverage of the game, Hargreaves said of Firmino’s goal: ‘Mo Salah just put on a show. Two wonderful goals in that first half.
“And how about that for a finish [from Firmino]? Mo Salah is so unselfish – it’s a brilliant pass and a ridiculous finish from Firmino to connect and guide that into the back post.”
Liverpool FC will return to Premier League action after the international break when they travel to Crystal Palace on 31 March.
The Reds are currently in third place in the table as they look to try and get as close to Manchester United as possible before the season is out.
