The Egyptian scored a hat-trick for the second consecutive week to bring his league tally to 10
Salah told Sky Sports: ‘I think it’s great to win 5-0 here. We knew before the game that it would be difficult if we didn’t play our football. We managed to do that early on, which made the game a little easier.
“We knew they would come and try their best to win the game, so in our heads we had to be 100 percent, we needed to dominate the game and I think we succeeded.”
When asked about his personal scoring streak, the 29-year-old said: ‘As long as the team keeps winning, I’m beyond happy. I always try to help.
‘The first one I could go alone but I gave it to Naby (Keita), so I think I always try to do my best so that the team wins, which is the most important thing.’
Graeme Souness said he would not trade Salah for any other player in the world.

Salah’s performance impressed former Reds midfielder Graeme Souness, who said: ‘He’s on fire, he’s the best forward right now. If you had to trade it for someone, you wouldn’t. He’s the best of this season, it’s nice to see him, it’s a pleasure to see him. ”
Gary Neville also praised Salah. He said: ‘He’s a player who decides when he wants to win a game. He is at his best, it is very rare to see players like this in the Premier League, when they are at their best.
“It’s amazing, Alisson is exactly like van Dijk.”
Following his hat-trick on Sunday, Salah has scored 15 notable goals in just 12 matches in all competitions this season.
