Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah was an unstoppable force of nature during the 5-0 Watford triumph.

The Egyptian entered the Premier League clash as one of the world’s best players on current form and staggeringly kept up his run of consecutive matches with a goal by scoring at Vicarage Road.

Salah had already mesmerized the Anfield faithful with an outrageous assist for Roberto Firmino, but the way in which he moved to eight goalscoring games on the bounce was even more astonishing.

Salah’s solo stunner


That’s because Salah produced his second solo stunner in as many games by wiggling his way through the Watford back-line and flattening Craig Cathcart with a fake shot for good measure.

And when it came to rounding off the move with a finishing touch, Salah left Ben Foster rooted with a typically lethal strike into the far corner and propelled Liverpool into a 4-0 lead in the process.

It really was a picture-perfect goal and no doubt many Liverpool fans have spent their afternoon watching Salah contort and twist through the Watford tackles on a constant loop ever since.


Peter Drury’s commentary magic

However, what if we were to tell you that there was an even better way to watch Salah’s goal? I know, it might seem impossible, but we dare suggest that his worldie can actually be enhanced.

And as Liverpool fans have become so accustomed to in recent weeks, that comes through the medium of Peter Drury’s poetry behind the commentary mic.

While there are countless top commentators who put their words to Premier League football, it’s really starting to feel as though Drury has the gift of the gab better than most at the moment.

Salah’s goal with Peter Drury commentary

From calling Cristiano Ronaldo’s second Manchester United debut to describing Salah’s individual strike against Manchester City, there’s just something so spine-tingling about Drury’s commentary.

As such, it doesn’t take ‘Mystic Meg’ to predict that Drury’s silver tongue talking us through Salah’s latest wonder goal against Watford is a match made in heaven, so be sure to check it out below:


“He wouldn’t do it again, would he? Mo Salah… HAS!”

Words and wonder goals

That’s it, we’re calling out Mr. Peter Drury because it’s clear that the bloke has a time machine. The impeccable rhythm of his ‘surely not? narrative rising into ‘you bet he has’ was so darn perfect.

Marry that to some typically articulate, lucid and dramatic comments about Salah twisting blood and tearing apart defences for the umpteenth time that Drury has elevated an already classic moment.

It really goes to show that the most talented broadcasters in the business really can add an extra layer of drama and entertainment to flashes of brilliance that are already worthy of applause.

Franky, I want Drury to start commentating on my everyday life. What’s your number, Pete?
