Salah’s moment of magic for Liverpool

With the game poised at 1-1, Salah collected a Curtis Jones pass with his back to goal.

Salah edged away from Joao Cancelo before a beautiful ball roll got him away from Bernardo Silva.

Running at Aymeric Laporte, Salah appeared to be moving onto his left foot.

Instead, Salah quickly shifted back onto his right and smashed a superb effort past Ederson to put Liverpool 2-1 up.

It wasn’t to be the winner as Kevin De Bruyne equalised, but Salah’s moment lit up the game.

LeBron James praises Salah

Unsurprisingly, Salah has been earning praise from so many people around Liverpool and even neutrals.

Salah’s brilliance made its way to America, with Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James taking to Twitter to react.

James has been a part-owner of Liverpool for 10 years now, taking a keen interest in their fortunes.

After Liverpool posted that Salah is ‘absolutely unbelievable at football’, James simply tweeted ‘yes he is’ as the Egyptian wins praise from global stars.
