“That pass there into the space is unbelievable but don’t underestimate that, the weight of pass there.

“He’s inviting Salah to take it on his good foot. But then it’s all about Mo Salah there, we saw him score a goal in the week which was just unbelievable.

“From Watford’s perspective as well, look at the amount of defenders trying to get back.

“I know they’re 0-0 at Anfield, give good credit to them, but the finish, that little touch he took there, most players haven’t got that composure, that little Messi touch, where you chop inside and just want to get the shot away.

“That little extra touch took it out so he could get his body shape right and just lift it into the top corner,” Cole added.

Mohamed Salah has now scored 84 goals for Liverpool across all competitions since joining in 2017, two more than Luis Suarez in seven fewer games.
