Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah has extended his lead at the top of the scoring chart as far as the Premier League is concerned after his two goals helped his team to a thumping win over Merseyside rivals Everton. Egyptian international Salah scored a goal in each half to ensure that Liverpool handed a heavy defeat to the Toffees to avenge the disappointing loss suffered at Anfield.
Liverpool were able to pay Everton back in their own coin after they thrashed them 4-1 when the two teams met at Goodison Park for the first of their two Premier League matches this season.
Egyptian star Salah scored two of the four goals as pointed out earlier, while skipper Jordan Henderson and Diogo Jota got the other goals. With his brace, Salah took his tally to 19 goals in 19 goals to further buttress the opinion of those who think he should be higher than the seventh position finish on this year’s Ballon d’Or rankings.
Salah has now scored 13 goals in 13 games on the Premier League scene this season and he has extended his lead over nearest player Jamie Vardy of Leicester City to four.
