LIVERPOOL star Mo Salah thrilled football fans with a contender for goal of the season against Manchester City.
Hailed by some as a strike worthy of Lionel Messi, Salah jinxed his way past City’s stubborn defence before lashing the ball home from a tight angle.
The 76th minute effort saw Liverpool go 2-1 ahead at Anfield, following strikes from Sadio Mane and Phil Foden.
Indeed, many believed Salah’s effort was going to be enough for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
But they were undone just five minutes later when Kevin De Bruyne equalised for the champions.
And the title clash at Anfield finished 2-2, with both sides picking up a point.
The thriller also saw a memorable moment from City’s Bernardo Silva, who skipped his way past three Liverpool players before leaving Virgil van Dijk on the floor with a mazy run of his own.
However, it was Salah’s goal that fans continued to rave about long after the final whistle.

On his goal, Salah said: “I have to watch it again! It would be more special if it had won the game.

Boss Jurgen Klopp was more enthusiastic though, beaming: “Goal two is individual quality which you only see when you are really lucky and blessed.
“If Leo Messi or Ronaldo scores that goal then the whole world accepts it because they are world class. Mo Salah scores that goal because he is world class.
“He is one of the best players in the world that is how it is. It is not the first time he has scored goals like that.”
